URI Golf Leads After Round 1 at Rum Pointe

The University of Rhode Island golf team leads by nine shots heading into the second and final round at Rum Pointe in Maryland. 

As a team, Rhody is three-under par for the tournament, nine better than second-place Rider. 

“For the second tournament in a row, we faced incredible winds but preserved. It was a six-and-half hour round, so playing so well in those conditions is a credit to how hard our guys have worked on their strength and conditioning,” said Head Coach Gregg Burke after the round.
