The Iowa men’s golf team completed first round action of the NCAA Tallahassee Regional on Thursday, and the Hawkeyes have left some work for themselves in order to advance.

They are tied for 11th after finishing with a team score of 299 (plus-11) after the first round. The Black and Gold are 27 strokes behind leader North Carolina, which finished minus-16 after the first day. The Hawks are also 19 strokes behind the cutoff for NCAA championships. No. 7 Georgia Tech and South Florida are both tied for fourth at minus-8.

Sophomore Joesph Winslow continued his good play, shooting an even par 72 to tie for 36th. MJ Maguire of North Carolina has the individual lead after one round with a 65.

“Obviously, we’re not happy with the score we shot today,” said head coach Mark Hankins in a release. “Some of that is strategy, and some of that is just execution. We’ll take what we learned today, apply that for tomorrow, and work to put five good scores together tomorrow.

The Hawkeyes will continue regional play today and Saturday.
