UTEP Men’s Golf in Third Place; Ambrosius, Terrazas Tied for Second

LAS CRUCES – The UTEP men’s golf team (287-298—585), which led the field with 28 birdies, is ranked third behind second place Oral Roberts (293-291—584) and host NM State (288-292—580) after the first two rounds on a cold and windy Monday at the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate at NM State Golf Course (par 71/7,242 yards).

UTEP was ranked first following round no. 1 after firing a season-low 287 (+3).

Senior Aaron Terrazas (71-72—143) shot 1-over par during the first two rounds and sophomore Oskar Ambrosius (70-73—143) opened the tournament with a 70 as both are tied for second place with UTRGV’s Henry Fisher (70-73—143). The frontrunner on the player leaderboard is NM State’s Mike McGilton (74-67—141), who shot the lowest round on the day with a 67 in round two.

Ambrosius and Fisher led the day with 11 birdies apiece, while Terrazas tallied six birdies. Ambrosius registered six of his birdies during the first round, including three consecutive on holes two (par 3), three (par 4) and four (par 5).

The other three competing Miners are Santiago Castilla (73-76—149), Settavut Paradee (73-77—150) and Nattapol Udomrat (76-79—155).

True freshman Marcus Khaw (71-73—144), competing as an individual, is ranked fifth and produced a career-low score of 71 during round no. 1. Khaw also recorded seven birdies on Monday.

The other Miners competing as individuals are Eduardo Gonzales (74-75—149), Cole Donielson (76-77—153), Greg Yellin (73-80—153) and Ben Getman (75-78—153).
