Iowa Near the Top After 36 Holes Hosting Tournament

The Hawkeye-Great River Entertainment Invitational teed off Saturday morning, and after 36 holes the Hawkeyes find themselves in second place.

Iowa was atop the scoreboard as a team for a significant portion of the afternoon, but fell behind Idaho and Iowa State roughly 10 holes into the second round. The team rallied, however, to finish the day at 12-under-par and trailing only Iowa State.

Sophomore Carson Schaake led the way for the Hawkeyes, and followed a 73 in Round 1 with a 66 in the second round to finish at five-under-par and tied for fourth place. Two players ended the day at -6, while Wichita State’s Louis Cohen Boyer has completely run away with the thing and sits at -13.

Voramate Aussarassakorn and Nate Yankovich finished tied for eighth at -3, and Brian Bullington and Ian Vandersee are tied for 16th at -1. Raymond Knoll finished even on the day and Sam Meuret was +4.

Iowa will try to win its 15th title at the event when the third round begins on Sunday.
