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. 


Rhode Island was led by Jordan Brajcich and Bryson Richards, who are both tied for second place after the first round at three-under. 

Senior Austin Fox is in an eight-way tie for 10th place at one-over, while Jack Tegan and Brandon Gillis are tie for 18th and 27th respectfully. 

Rhode Island looks to come out their second straight victory on Sunday.
