CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. – A trio of Bulldogs are in the top-16 through 36-holes to lead the Drake University men’s golf team at the Missouri Valley Conference Championship at the Dalhousie Country Club in Cape Girardeau, Mo. Sophomore Kyle MacDonald leads the team with a total score of 614 and is tied for 12th place. He got out to a tough start, shooting a 78 in the opening round but bounced back to fire a two-over-par 74 to end the day. “We played okay for most of the second round and then struggled the last six holes. We were sitting in second place throughout the entire day and fell back several spots in the last few holes. We are definitely disappointed with where we ended up today but we see that we have an opportunity to have a strong finish with a good round tomorrow,” said Lewis. “Today was another tough day with weather conditions. We battled on and off rain all day,” said Drake head coach Matt Lewis. “We got off to rough start the first six holes and then battled back the next 12 holes. Tim was the first-round leader and played great making a ton of birdies and Drew also had a solid first round to lead us.”  Through 18 holes, the Bulldogs were in second place after shooting a 304. The team settled to sixth-place after totaling a 310 in the final round of the day for a total score of 614.
