MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Following a schedule change that shifted the tournament from a three-day format to just two days, play was halted due to darkness midway through the second round of the Tiger Invitational Presented by Jason Dufner in Opelika, Alabama. West Virginia is currently T-10th.
The Mountaineers shot a 295 in the first round to T-15th, and are currently five under par through nine holes of the second round on the Grand National Lakes Course. They are two over on the day. Host No. 23 Auburn is atop the leaderboard at nine under par, followed by No. 27 Missouri and UNCW in second at six under.
“A lot of golf still to be played in this event, but we are off to a good start in round two,” coach Sean Covich said. “Unfortunately, play was suspended when some of our guys were playing their best. We will need to finish off round two the way we started.”
Chris Williams is tied for seventh through the first six holes of the second round. He shot even with a 72 in the first round, and has registered a trio of birdies to sit three under par in the second.
Alan Cooke shot three over par with a 75 in the first round, and is two under par in the second. He is one over on the day and tied for 31st place. Max Sear also carded a 75 in the first round and is even through the first six of the second. He is three over on the day and tied for 48th.
Tristan Nicholls finished one over with a 73 through the first 18 holes. He is five over in the second round thus far, tying for 77th place.
Etienne Papineau shot a 79 for seven over par in the first round, and is even with a trio of birdies in the second. He is seven over on the day and in 82nd place.
Golfers will resume the second round at 8:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday. The third and final round is set for a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. ET.
