The Ohio Men’s Golf Team is only 10 strokes out of first place after the first round of the University of Dayton Flyer Invitational. Ohio shot a team score of 303 through the first round of play, earning them sixth place out 16 teams.
The Bobcat’s Byron Firestone tied for the best individual round of the day, shooting a 71, which is par for the course. Ohio also received good rounds from Connor Coldwater and Michael Lamping who both shot a 75.
Paul Grauer, Bradley Lucas, and John Mlynarski also turned in respectable totals for Ohio. IUPUI holds the team lead with a score of 293, which is within reach of Ohio’s 303 total, making a second round push for a title seem attainable for the Bobcats.
Senior co-captain John Mlynarski recognizes the opportunity the Bobcats have ahead of them.
“The course is playing very difficult, but we know that there are good scores to be shot out there. We are sitting in a good place after the first round and have the opportunity to beat some very good teams tomorrow with a solid second round,” Mlynarski said.
Ohio is determined to finish off the fall season strong as The Dayton Flyer Invitational’s second day begins with a 9 a.m. shotgun start on Tuesday.
