WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- University of Delaware freshmen Braden Shattuck and Kyle Martin each finished the day among the top 10 to lead the Blue Hen men’s golf team to a fourth place spot in the team standings on Monday following the first day of the Joe Agee Invitational.
Shattuck (at right) opened with a one over par 72 on the par 71, 6,837-yard course at The Williamsburg Club before following with an even par 71 during his second round. Shattuck will enter Tuesday’s final round tied for fifth place in the individual standings at one over par with a 72-71-143.
Martin began his day with a five over par 76, but rebounded to card a three under 68 as he finished the day tied for eighth place with a two over par 76-68-144. Martin’s second round 68 is tied for the 15th lowest round in Blue Hen history, while he is just the second UD freshman in school history to shoot a 68 or lower, along with Colin Smith who carded a 66 in the fall of 2007.
Blue Hen senior captain Ben Conroy fired a 75-74-149, ending the day at seven over par to tie for 21st place. Sophomore Niño Roal carded a nine over par 76-75-151, ending Monday’s action in 29th place.
Junior Dan Costenbader concluded the day in a tie for 43rd place after he recorded a 17 over par 77-82-159.
Chase Wilson of High Point, who carded a 67-67-134, and Callum Tarren of Radford, who fired a 64-70-134, are tied for the individual lead at eight under par.
The Blue Hens posted two sub-300 team rounds on the day, recording a 299 and a 287 to finish Monday fourth out of 11 squads at 587. High Point and Radford are tied for the lead at 572, while host William & Mary sits in third place at 577.
The third and final round of the Joe Agee Invitational will begin Tuesday at 9 a.m. at The Williamsburg Club.
