    Men’s golf struggles in first round of Isleworth Collegiate

    Rain, thunder and lightning weren’t the only gloom hanging over the Arizona men’s golf team yesterday in Orlando, Fla.

    After the first round of play at the Isleworth-UCF Collegiate Invitational, the Wildcats sit in 17th place out of 18 teams.

    Arizona shot 13-over 301 in the round.

    “”We didn’t play well,”” said senior Creighton Honeck. “”We made too many mistakes and didn’t get enough birdies.””

    The best first-round performance for Arizona came from freshman Tarquin MacManus, who started the tournament as high as 11th place but fell to 17th by the end of the round. MacMannus shot 1-under 71 on the day.

    “”We need a couple solid rounds,”” Honeck said. “”If we get a couple people under par, we can really move up.””
