Iowa State sits in seventh after day one in Louisville regional

The Iowa State men’s golf team wrapped up first round play at the Louisville regional Monday afternoon.

The Cyclones ended the first round in seventh place, two back of a spot to head to NCAA Championship play.

Tripp Kinney ended his first round sitting in the top-10.

Kinney shot -2 (69) for the first round, good enough to put him in eighth place individually.

Lachlan Barker and Ricky Costello made the top-20 after round one, with both Cyclones sitting T16. 

Barker and Costello both shot even (71) for the first round.

The Cyclones struggled shooting birdies, something that has been a strong point in the tournaments during the regular season.



Tripp Kinney and Danny Daniels practice at Coldwater Golf Links on April 5th.


Iowa State ended round one with the fewest amount of birdies of all the teams with 11 birdies in total.

The rest of the scores are as follows:

Sam Vincent: T61; shot +6 (77)

Frank Lindwall: T67; shot +7 (78)

Iowa State will be back on the course tommorow to begin round two.
