JONESBORO, Ark. - Firing rounds of 70 and 71, freshman Dane Worley (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) led the Drake men's golf team to an 18th-place showing with a 607 (305-302=607) score after the initial 36 holes of the Arkansas State Red Wolf Intercollegiate on Monday (April 2) at the RidgePointe Country Club.

Worley equaled a career-low with his opening round 70 and sits tied for fifth, two shots off the overall lead, with a 36-hole mark of 141.

"Dane (Worley) played wonderfully today shooting a -1 under to tie for fifth, two strokes off the lead," Bulldog head coach Matt Lewis commented.  "I'm really happy for him as he had probably 9-10 birdies and was mentally tough all day.  He putted really well and made a lot of par-saving putts.  He has put himself in nice contention for tomorrow and hopefully he can follow up today's effort with a good round and a strong finish."

Shooting back-to-back 74's to stand tied for 44th with a two-round total of 148 is redshirt freshman Devin Leland (Huxley, Iowa).

Posting his team-best 15th-straight performance shooting in the 70's was freshman Blake Huser (Altoona, Iowa), who completed his day with a 157 (78-79=157) score, good for a 96th-place tie.

Carding scores of 83 and 78, sophomore Matt Ohl (Milford, Iowa) is tied for 110th place, firing a two-round total of 161 (83-78=161).

Sophomore Connor Steele (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) rounded out the Bulldogs' effort tying for 116th place, shooting a 36-hole score of 166 (85-81=166).

"Overall the team had two bad rounds with a lot of big numbers and that really hurt us," said Lewis.  "We're going to try to clean up some of our errors and eliminate the big numbers and if we can get 4-5 players playing well, hopefully we can make improvement tomorrow and have a good finish."

Drake closes out action at the Arkansas State Red Wolf Intercollegiate on Tuesday (April 3) beginning with a shotgun start at 8:00 a.m.
