SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa men’s golf team finds itself in some familiar territory after the first day of the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate in Dallas: at the top of the leaderboard.

The Hawkeyes finished the first day of their most difficult tournament of the fall with a score of 551 (17-under). Iowa and Texas A&M battled on the second round’s back nine, but the Aggies faltered and trail Iowa by five strokes. Host Baylor — thought to be a favorite — is a whopping 25 strokes behind the squad at 8-over.

Iowa’s seniors once again led the way, with Vince India in first place at 10-under after two rounds. Brad Hopfinger isn’t far behind, sitting in a tie for seventh after carding 137 (5-under).

Junior Chris Brant followed his first round of 68 with a 72 and is 1-under. Barrett Kelpin followed up a first round of 73 by posting a second round score of 68. Brad George carded a 150 to cap the day for the Hawkeyes.

Penn State sits in a tie for fourth after finishing the day with a final score of 565.

The Hawkeyes will card their last round of the fall season today when they tee off at 8:30 a.m. in search of a fourth-straight tournament victory, which would extend the squad’s own school record.
