MU Golfers Wrap Up Day One At Windon Memorial

Oct. 5, 2008

MILWAUKEE -- Marquette was tied for third place following Sunday's opening round at the Windon Memorial Classic, but the Golden Eagles had dropped to ninth place by the conclusion of day one following a rugged second round at North Shore Country Club.

Three groups were unable to finish Sunday due to darkness and will resume play at 8 a.m. Monday, prior to the start of the third round.

Defending individual champion Mike Van Sickle led Marquette with a one-under par 141. Van Sickle shot a two-under 69 and was tied for third after round one. He is currently tied for seventh after going one-over 72 in the second round.

Matt Haase, who placed in the top 20 at his first collegiate event last week in Louisville, continued to impress early on. Haase used four straight birdies on the front nine to get to three-under. He then carded back-to-back bogeys, followed by a double bogey on hole 12, to begin the back nine, but still managed to shoot under par with a 70. Haase was top-10 most of the day, but finished with a 77 to slip to 36th place.

As a team, Marquette picked up 16 additional strokes in the second round to tally a score of 586 (285-301) through the first 36 holes of the 15-team event. Marquette's 301 was the highest second round score of any team.

Illinois leads the team leaderboard at a combined nine-under 559 (276-283). Tournament host Northwestern sits in a tie for fourth place (578) with Missouri. Indiana (two-under, Did not finish round two) and Kent State (577) round out the top 10.
