QUOTES & NOTES
“Very disappointing day for us. We were right there through nine. Too many big numbers was the story of our day. We have an outside chance tomorrow. We’ll look to get off to a hot start and post a number.” – Rider Head Coach Jason Barry
• Moreno birdied his ninth hole to play even-par through nine, before posting a pair of birdies through 17 on the back nine. A bogey on 18 gave him a one-under 71 for the day.
• Simone had an up-and-down day, featuring an eagle, two birdies, two bogeys and two triple bogeys.
• Sollon had mixed luck on the Par 3’s, carding a birdie on two and a bogey on two.
