Lobos 7th after NCAA Golf Regional 1st round

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – They started fast on the front 9 but, had a few struggles on the back 9. The University of New Mexico Lobos are 7th after a round of the NCAA Albuquerque Regional.

“Not really the start we were looking for but, everything doesn’t go the way you want it to go,” said Lobos head Golf Coach Glen Millican. “We had three guys play solid and then we had a couple of guys struggle.”

Arizona State has the lead after a two under 286 team round. South Florida is second. The top five will advance to the NCAA Championships.

Lobo senior Andrej Bevins had the low round for the host team after an even par 72.

His round started very promising with a 3 under 33 after the first 9. He was not able to keep up that pace.He is tied for tenth on the individual leader board and believes his team will bounce back Tuesday.

“When we are behind the eight ball we usually go get it the next day,” said Bevins. “I feel like even though we didn’t play our best today, we will go out and do well tomorrow.”

Lobo Sam Kim is tied for 16th on the individual board with a one over 73 so is freshman and Hope Christian grad Sean Carlon. “We just need to go out there and be patient and get them when they come and if they don’t we need to take it with a grain of salt,” said Carlon.  “Just keep grinding away and keep picking away at the score.”

The nation’s top collegiate golfer, Jon Rahm fired a first round 3 under 69 and is at the top of the individual leaderboard.
