USF men’s golf team sits in 13th after Round 1

After finishing eighth in the Carolina First Collegiate tournament last weekend, the USF men’s golf team hit the road to compete in the Adams Cup in Newport, Va.

After the first round of play, the team stood in 13th place out of 17 teams. The second round was suspended due to darkness and will conclude prior to today’s final round.

USF shot a 307, 14 shots behind tournament leader Virginia Tech, which shot a 293. Georgia sits in second place, one stroke back of the Hokies. Michigan State, Kentucky and Louisville round out the top five.

Oscar Fraustro continued his hot success, shooting a 75, seven shots behind Georgia State’s Kasper Jorgenson. Fraustro, a Brevard Community College transfer, finished 22nd last week with a 219 in the Carolina First Collegiate tournament.

Fraustro was even better in his Bulls’ debut at the Cellular One Raising Cane Classic in Hattiesburg, Miss. Following his final round 66, which tied for low score on the day, Fraustro placed 11th at the tournament, matching his team’s performance.

Ryan Shears also shot a 75, and rounding out the rest of the squad were Dan Grassman with a 77, Jeremy Sims with 80 and Brad Quiri with an 84.
