WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Playing in difficult conditions that featured a weather delay, followed by cold temperatures and wind when play resumed, the Miami University golf team finds itself tied for 12th after two rounds of the Boilermaker Intercollegiate on Saturday. The RedHawks shot rounds of 298 in the morning and 296 in the afternoon and find themselves at 18-over par. There is room to move up the standings as current co-leaders Kent State and Northwestern are only 15 shots in front at three-over par.
Senior Patrick Flavin led the way for Miami on Saturday. After opening with a five-over par 77 in the morning and double bogeying his first hole of the second round, he would put in seven birdies over his final 17 holes to complete a second round of five-under par 67. That was the low round by any golfer on the day. Flavin is tied for ninth individually at even par, five shots out of the lead.
Freshman Charlie Nikitas had an even par round of 72 to open play and followed with a 74 in the afternoon. He is tied for 20th at two-over par. Sophomore Cam Solomon had a one-under par 71 in the morning and a 78 in the afternoon. He is tied for 46th at five-over par.
