Sophomore Ryan Butler (Windham, NH) is tied for 181st (88), while junior Tim Leigh (Somerset, MA) tied for 189th (89).

 

 "Kyle had a 77 and played good, but struggled coming down the stretch," RIC Head Coach Greg Gammell said. "Conditions were difficult on a course with water on every hole. The wind direction was in the opposite direction from our practice round on Monday which made our game plan useless. Playing in this championship is such a different environment than our normal tournaments. The guys are looking forward to bouncing back tomorrow."
