GREENSBORO, NC (Blugolds.com) – After the second round of the 2018 NCAA Division III Golf Championship, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Ryan Isaacson (Sr. – Eau Claire, WI/Memorial) is tied for 12th place overall.
Teams and individuals started the day by completing the first round, which was suspended by storms with 18 teams still on the course. The second round started via a shotgun start on two courses, believed to be a first in NCAA Championship competition. Despite a 90-minute weather delay late in the afternoon, the teams completed the second round. Isaacson tallied a 75 on Wednesday that puts him at even-par 144 after 36 holes.
The top-18 teams, plus six individuals not part of a top-18 team – which includes Isaacson - will play the final 36 holes Thursday and Friday on Grandover's East Course. A four-man playoff is needed to determine the sixth and final individual spot. Grady Anderson (North Carolina Wesleyan College), Evan Yue (Goucher College), Ryan Muthiora (Kenyon College), and Ben VanScoyk (Calvin College) each scored par on the first playoff hole Wednesday before darkness set it. The playoff continues Thursday morning. Isaacson will tee off at 9:10 EST.
