Lakewood, Colo.: The Regis University men's golf team had an advantage as the Bob Writz/Colorado Mines Invite took place on their home course of Fox Hollow (71-6808, 36-3555). The advantage showed as the Rangers finished the first two rounds in second place with a two-round score of 439, trailing host Colorado Mines by six strokes.
The second round was shortened to nine holes due to weather and slow play. Tomorrow's final round is in jeopardy with snow in the forecast. The Rangers shot a 293 in the first round, which is a team low for 18 holes.
Senior Taylor Hulbert led the Rangers with a 72 and a 36 for a total of 108 to tie for fifth place. Senior Robert Quick, in seventh place, was one stroke behind after carding a 73 over the first 18 holes while tying Hulbert with a 36 over the final nine.
