Sophomore Gonzalo Pan De Soraluce wasted little time starting his second year off right as he ripped off scores of 69 and 67 to tie for the individual lead after the first two rounds of the Ryan Palmer Foundation Invitational took place at the Tascosa Country Club. The Mustangs as a team sit in 10th.
After opening with a first round 296, WNMU trimmed 13-strokes off that score during the second round to post a 283 for a 579 to sit in 10th. Texas A&M-Commerce leads the 17 team field by a stroke with a 558.
Pan De Soraluce is tied with two others after the trio fired eight-under 136’s to lead the field. His 69 during the first round and his 67 in the second round both led the Mustangs. Freshman Harry O’Callaghan had similar scores in both rounds in his first collegiate start as he compiled rounds of 74 and 73 for a 147 to tie for 48th.
Lone senior Ross White and sophomore Pedro De La Vega are tied for 56th with rounds of 148. White opened with a 77 and then roared back with a second round 71. De La Vega had a similar result as he opened with a 76 and then ended with a 72. Rounding out the top-five for the Mustangs was the other freshman Sam Ruston who carded scores of 79 and 74 for a 153 to tie for 76th.
WNMU will wrap-up the Ryan Palmer Foundation Invitational tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9 a.m. (Central Time) with a shotgun start.
