Weiss made an eagle on the 15th hole
RALEIGH, N.C. – Marshall Thundering Herd senior golfer Alex Weiss is in a tie for 60th place at the NCAA Raleigh Regional with a score of 6-over 148 after two rounds at the Lonnie Pool Golf Course.
“Alex played well today,” head coach Matt Grobe said. “He still isn’t making as many birdie putts as we are used to seeing, but he is rolling the ball well. I am looking forward to watching him compete in the final round tomorrow and trying to move up the leaderboard.”
Weiss’ second round saw a four-stroke improvement from the previous day. The senior shot a 1-over 72 on Tuesday afternoon that was highlighted by an eagle on the 15th hole. The eagle on No. 15 was set up after the senior hit a perfect drive off the tee. From there, Weiss hit a two-iron across a lake and made a putt from 10 feet out.
The senior’s round was also highlighted by making par on eight consecutive holes and bouncing back from a bogey on the third hole.
Individually, Texas’ Doug Ghim has a one-stroke lead over N.C. State’s Benjamin Shipp with a 12-under 130. Overall, the Longhorns have an eight-stroke lead over the Wolfpack
Weiss will return to action tomorrow morning.
