COLUMBUS, Ga. – The UWG men’s golf team did not get off to the start they were looking for on Monday as the Wolves shot rounds of 303 and 292 in the first two rounds of the AFLAC-Cougar Invitational in Columbus, Ga. The Wolves are in 17th place.


Samuel Jones had a good start to his junior year as his first round was a three-over par 74, and then the New Zealand native shot a two-under round of 69 to finish the day at one-over after 36 holes. Jones made four birdies and a pair of bogeys in his afternoon round and begins tomorrow in 24th place.


It was a solid rebound from round one to two for Daniel Benson as the junior shot a 77 in the first round before backing that up with a 71 in round two after making six birdies. Benson is in 50th place.


Senior Carson Vaughn shot rounds of 76 and 77 respectively in his first action of the season and was the third UWG player down the leaderboard at 75th place.


A pair of Wolves struggled on the day finishing at 16-over as Valentin Riviere shot 83 and then a 75 while Ethan Jones made his debut with a first round 76 and then struggled in the second round with an 82. The pair is tied at 88th.
