EAST LANSING, Mich. - Due to darkness the second round of the Windon Memorial was suspended with a couple holes to play on Sunday. The Michigan State men's golf team is unofficially currently fourth at 19-over par. Competition at Skokie Country Club in Glencoe, Ill. will continue tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m. ET.
"We are starting to become more efficient and understand our priorities," said head coach Casey Lubahn. "On a day that I thought we played ok, we still managed to score well. Carson Castellani's first round (18-straight pars) was one of the most beautiful things to watch. He executed the game plan perfectly. We have to be more efficient tomorrow, play better on the par 5s, and avoid the big numbers."
The Spartans posted an 11-over par 295 in the first round to sit in third place, and is unofficially currently 8-over in the second round with three holes to play.
Senior Matthew Moseley leads the Spartans and is tied for sixth overall at 2-over par. Moseley opened with a 4-over par 75 in the first round and is currently 2-under through 15 holes in the second round.
Junior Carson Castellani opened the day with 24 straight birdies, including a mistake-free even par 71 in the first round. Castellani is now tied for 10th at 4-over par with three holes to play in the second round.
Rounding out the Spartans in the field, sophomore McCormick Clouser is tied for 33rd (8-over), freshman Mitch Rutledge is tied for 45th (10-over) and senior Dan Ellis is tied for 51st (11-over), all through 15 holes in the second round.
Northwestern, the tournament's host, tops the leaderboard at 12-over par, four shots ahead of Coastal Carolina and five shy of Tennessee. There is a three-way tie atop the individual leaderboard, as Nicholas Losole and John Callahan of Northwestern and Chris O'Neill of Michigan are all 1-under with holes remaining in the second round.
