AUGUSTA, Ga. — Marquette sits tied for 11th with a 6-over-par 582 (289-293) after 36 holes at the 3M Augusta Invitational, hosted by Augusta at Forest Hills G.C.
The Golden Eagles are led by 2-over-par Saturday efforts from Oliver Farrell (72-74–146) and Austin Kendziorski (75-71–146) - both are tied for 31st. Only 10 strokes separate leader Dylan Meyer of Illinois (8-under-par) from 41st place - Matt Murlick (73-73—147) is one seven players at that spot, at 3-over-par.
The tight leaderboard is a result of the strong field - 13 of the 15 teams at the Augusta Invitational currently rank among Division I’s top 100 teams (USC Aiken is No. 9 in Division II), with six in the top 50, including Marquette at No. 40. Illinois is the team leader after 36 holes at 12-under-par.
After a 3-over-par opening round and a 2-over-par start on his first nine holes of the second round, Kendziorski rallied to go 3-under-par coming in to produce a 1-under-par 71 in the second.
Matthew Bachmann (70-78—148, T-48) carded MU’s other sub-par round, notching seven birdies in the first round in a 2-under-par finish.
Marquette tees off on No. 10 in the final round on Sunday at 7:45 a.m. CT in a threesome with host Augusta and New Mexico.
