The Buckeyes hoped to bounce back Saturday after a rough opening round.

The weather forecast is temperatures in the low 60’s, no rain and westerly winds with speed in the low 20’s.

Recap

The Buckeyes, along with every other team in the field, struggled to score on Saturday. They flipped Friday’s script  by playing the back nine in a relatively modest +12. The front nine was the challenge as they limped to the clubhouse in +21. Their team total for the round of of 313 (+33) gave them two round score of 609 (+49) and a 12th place standing.

On Saturday, there were no players under par and only one player, Donnie Trosper of Michigan State shot even par. The only player Mr. Prosper is the only player in the field to not be over r through two rounds. I’m not sure what team is going to win this event, but the champion is definitely the Wissahicken Course…

On Saturday, the Buckeyes were led by Laken Hinton’s 77 (+7). Caleb Ramirez and Daniel Wetterich had 78s (+8) and Will Voetsch had an 80 (+10) to complete team scoring. Will Grimmer had an 81 (+11).

Through two rounds, Caleb is T-14th place. Will V is T-24th,   Daniel and Laken are T-42nd and Will G is T-58th.

Will V

Will could not get anything going on Saturday. He bogeyed four of his five opening holes and made the turn at 40 (+5). His back nine was pretty much the same, but a birdie on his final hole gave Will a back nine of 40 (+5) and a round of 80 (+10).

Laken

Laken sandwiched a birdie between two bogeys to close out his front nine and made the turn with a solid 37 (+2).  He alternated bogeys and pars on his back nine for a 40 (+5) and a round of 77 (+7). Like Daniel, he also had a round with no score higher than a bogey.

Through two rounds, Laken averaged 3.38 (+3) on the par-3s, 4.50 (+12) on the par-4s and 5.00 (E) on the par-5s. In 36 holes, he has 1 birdie and 19 pars.
