+6............12th place.......on holes 14-17
"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
Horns finish +6 in 6th place..........day one
There are teams still on the course and we are now down to a tie for 8th. North Florida and Liberty could potentially fall below us so we could move up to a tie for 6th, but several other teams could also move ahead of us still.
Very solid opening round for the best team in the country
Gribble off to quite the struggle early. After an opening birdie, he's made two double bogies. Good news is Hakula is -1 and picking up his slack. Horns start on the front nine today where the opening hole is almost a gift of a birdie. Spieth is playing it now....Horns are +1 on the day thus far and in 10th place.
Spieth needs at 67-68 type day IMO.
National Director of Scouting & Recruiting Analyst
He's -2 thus far. Horns are playing very well. Even par on the day. Special shout out to Hakula who just made an ace and still stands at -1. Gribble will have his score dropped today. +6 on the front nine.
yikes. Four bogeys by the Horns. Now +10 overall in going in the wrong direction. Leader is +2.
Coach Fields never won the Mountain West one time while at UNM.
Didn't know that................how many Big 12 Championships?
Just counted 3 2002,2003 and 2004

Spieth makes triple bogey on the tricky par 4 10th. Damn. Vegas just birdied two holes to move back to even par. Hakula and Vegas are carrying the load right now. Fritelli and Spieth are +3 and +2.
Love the updates Beast!
The wheels have fallen off our super star a little bit. Spieth follows the triple bogey up with a double at the par 5 11th. Good news is Hakula has moved to -1 on his round to hold things together a bit. Texas is +6 on the day. Need to get this one to the house.
Spieth is still struggling. Up to +6 now. Fritelli struggling as well. I believe he's plus 4. Vegas is even par and Hakula is -1. Really need to get this in the house with no more shots given up to par. Texas is +15 now and in a t-19th. That number is misleading though. I believe 10 teams in front of them have yet to start or have just started. UCLA is playing terrific today.
Looks like I jinxed us. Another double for Spieth who clearly can't recover from that triple at 10. Looks like we'll take Gribble's +8 today. Horns falling down the board and in a T-25th now. A&M just passed us......gulp.
Texas had/has no chance without Spieth playing like one of the top 2-3 golfers in the college ranks.
This seems to be a trend with Field's program...........a quick check:
2011 final NCAA standings 12
2010 final 21st
2009 final 26th
So 1 top 10 in 14 years as HC...............Austin is a Mecca for golfers. The facilities are second to none. This is a time when the aggies have a NC? We've had some disappointments this year but this team is failing to get the job done again...........
Note: the Horns are now #22 (+17) and the aggies are #27 (+27)/ In addition it looks like 9 teams still on the course will come back to the Horns. My guess is we finish about 12-9

2nd round finished....................Horns +17 in 13th place...............13 stokes off the lead
True, but they are only 2 strokes from getting into the top 8 (which IIRC is where they need to be to advance to match play) and 5 strokes back from 3rd. Very poor performance today but along way from being out of it.
Yes get to match play and anything can happen...............the aggies came from nowhere 2 years ago in match play
Horns are just fine. 5 out of third and just one stroke away from the match play. Spieth rebounds and Texas should be in. Course will be set up tough, must have patience today.
Will match play be on tv?
The Horns will be the last groups to tee off today starting at 1:40 and I am assuming that is EST
Just one stroke out of match play right now
Up to 11th without swinging a club today
