Head Coach Gregg Burke's Take
- This is not at all what we expected nor are we satisfied with our performance today.
- I was proud of the way Jason and Brody scratched and clawed through the second round.
- Dawson truly hit the ball very, very well tee to green, but had a rough go putting.
- This tournament is the last one before next March and the last chance to define ourselves individually and as a team.
