Warrior golfers in 12th heading into final round at NJCAA Tourney


”We’ve played better every day, but we left so many opportunities out there,” Hagen said. “I don’t think we could have hit 16 under par, but seven or eight under was not out of the question for us.”

”We couldn’t get balls up and down. We couldn’t make simple putts and we certainly haven’t taken advantage of the par fives. That’s why we shot one over and why the leaders shot 12 and 16 under par.”

Sophomore William White, the top Warrior golfer throughout this national tournament, became the first Warrior golfer to move into red figures. The Waukegan, Ill., native shot a one-under 71 on Thursday to move to one-under for the tournament, leaving White four shots out of a five-way tie for first place.

For Hagen and the two-time defending national champion Warriors, today’s final round may be more a matter of playing for pride than being able to somehow win a third-straight title in a very improbable fashion. After seeing what a low round can do, including create a 23-shot turnaround as it did on Thursday, Hagen hopes his team’s best 18 holes may somehow still be enough

”We’re going to try to go out there and finish on a high note. We’re going to try and post the lowest number possible and see where that puts us,” Hagen said. “It’s a long shot to win it, but if you post a really good score you can just sit back and put that pressure on the final groups.”
