Sugar Grove, Ill.—After two rounds of competition, the Buckeyes sit at sixth place in the Northern Intercollegiate Invitational. The 36 hole day was cut short by darkness and will be finished up starting at 8:15 AM, Sunday morning before the third round commences. Daniel Wetterich is tied for 13th place after a first round 70 and an in progress second round of three over through 15 holes. Fellow senior Will Grimmer also sits tied for 13th place after shooting a 74, and is one under through 15 holes for his second round. Will Voetsch sits at even for the tournament, Kevin Stone at nine over, and Caleb Ramirez at 12 over. The top three sit within striking distance of the leader at three under going into the completion of the second round and third round tomorrow.

Round 1

  • Wetterich led the way for the Buckeyes, firing a first round 70 to take a share of the second spot individually. On the front nine, Wetterich birdied three of his last five holes to turn in a two under 34. On the back, he paired a couple of birdies with a couple of bogeys to come in at even and card a two under 70.
  • Grimmer carded a good round as well with a two over 74, putting him in the fray tied at 28. Shooting 37 on the front, Grimmer played the back and forth game, sinking four birdies, to finish with a 37.
  • The number three, Voetsch, shot a 75, putting him comfortably within striking distance, while Stone, 80, and Ramirez, 81, rounded out the starting five.
  • The two freshmen were deployed as individuals for their first ever collegiate tournament. Grant Engle turned in a two over 74, while Colin Bowles carded a first round of 80.

Round 2

  • The number one turned in the makings of another good round thus far, at three over with three holes to play.
  • Carding four birdies over his 15 holes, Grimmer at one under on the day has the opportunity to put himself in good position for a final round push.
  • Voetsch has traded birdies and bogeys to sit at even through 14 holes and three over for the tournament. Through 13 holes, Stone is one over on the round and nine over in total. Ramirez is 12 over for the match and three over in the second round.
