LEMONT, Ill. – The Drake University men’s golf team has two players in the top-21 through 36 holes at the Missouri Valley Conference Championship on Monday at the Cog Hill Dubsdread Course in Lemont, Ill. “Overall we are disappointed with our play today, because we felt prepared and confident coming after having two good practice rounds,” said Drake head coach Matt Lewis. “We just didn’t execute the way we intended and it showed as we were +26 in our first 12 holes. We battled back to finish the last six holes of the first-round two-under. Then we got off to a better start in the second-round but struggled coming in.” Drake will close out the season with the final round of the MVC Championship on Tuesday. Print Friendly Versionlast_img
