EAST LANSING, Mich. - Playing in competition for its third day in a row, the Michigan State men's golf team is ninth after Monday's action at the Inverness Intercollegiate in Toledo, Ohio. The Spartans are 22-over par 590 (299-291) at the Inverness Club.
"We really had some good rounds today, but four out of the 10 scores today were momentum killers and put us in a hole for the tournament," said Spartan head coach Casey Lubahn. "Obviously, Matthew Moseley's second round was phenomenal, but we will need consistency throughout the team tomorrow to dig out of the hole."
Sophomore McCormick Clouser leads the Spartans through 36 holes, sitting in a tie for 15th at 3-over par 145 (73-72). Clouser posted two eagles in his second round.
Senior Matthew Moseley had a historic afternoon, posting a career-low 5-under par 66 in the second round. His round is tied for the sixth lowest in Michigan State history. For the tournament, Moseley is tied for 19th at 4-over par 146 (80-66). He leads the team with seven birdies, all of which came in the second round, including a stretch of five-straight birdies to begin the round.
Senior Dan Ellis is tied for 27th with a 6-over par 148 (73-75), while freshman Mitch Rutledge is tied for 42nd at 9-over 151 (73-78) and senior Dave Ellis is tied for 57th at 16-over par 158 (80-78).
Playing as an individual, junior Carson Castellani carded a 6-over par 148 (73-75) and is tied for 27th.
