Slow start for No. 1 men’s golf at Isleworth Invitational

By Rich Mayor

The Illinois men’s golf team entered the elite Isleworth Collegiate Invitational with three consecutive wins, but didn’t play their best in the first round. The No. 1 Illini are tied for 14th in the 18 team field after the first of three rounds with a score of 13-over par.

Only No. 6 Alabama managed to be under par, as they lead the tournament at one-under.

Junior Matt Hoffman and sophomore Scott Langley are in the hunt despite a disappointing first-round effort for the Illini. Hoffman and Langley are tied for seventh place after both shooting even-par 72s.

Rounds two and three of the Isleworth are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday.
