Head Coach Brian Kortan
On Saturday’s round…
“We got off to a rough start this morning. We kind of righted the ship and hung in there. It got harder as the day went along. The wind came up and blew pretty good. The guys really did a good job of steadying themselves and posting what I thought was a pretty good score.”
On Daniel Rodrigues moving up the leaderboard…
“Dani had it going pretty well. He was 4-under through 14 holes. He hit a tough shot on 17 made a double on a really tough par-3. But Dani was part of the reason we steadied the ship a little bit. The guys didn’t panic. They fought for shots down the end and kept us in a position to have a good round tomorrow which can get us in a good spot on this leaderboard.”
