Well that was impressive.
The Arizona State men's golf stands at 5-under 571 after the first 36 holes of the Tucker Invitational hosted by the University of New Mexico on Friday. ASU shot 284-287 and leads host New Mexico by 11 strokes, as the Lobos shot +6 582 (290-292).
The Sun Devils got at least one solid round from everyone, as windy conditions on the long couse made it tough on everyone.
Sophomore Jon Rahm is tied for first at 4-under 140 (68-72), while sophomore Alberto Sanchez is tied for fourth at 1-under 143. Broc Johnson shot a 2-under 70 after shooting a 75 in the first round, while Austin Quick went 73-73 and is tied for 11th. Mathias Schjoelberg had the teams third-best score in the first round with a 72.
12 NOW: Jon Rahm's nine eagles was tied for the best mark in the nation with sophomore Xander Schauffele of San Diego State last year. That also is the most by a Sun Devil in the past 20 seasons, topping Paul Casey's eight eagles in his freshman season of 1997-98. Rahm had three eagles on Friday, raising his caeer total to 12. Since the 1993-94 season, only four Sun Devils have more eagles.
