WINDERMERE, Fla. – The first round of the Tavistock Collegiate Invitational is in the books at the Isleworth Country Club, and the Commodores are in a tie for 11th place on the team leaderboard after firing a team total of 293 on Sunday. Sophomore Reid Davenport led the way with a 2-under-par 70 for Vanderbilt.
The Commodores’ other counting scores on Sunday included an even-par 72 from senior John Augenstein, a 3-over 75 from junior Harrison Ott, and a 4-over 76 from freshman William Moll.
“I think it was really important for our team the way we hung in there and finished the round strong today,” said Vanderbilt head coach Scott Limbaugh. “We definitely didn’t play as well as a group as we wanted to, but you are never entitled to just play good golf. It’s about having the right mindset and doing the small things at a high level. Reid did a great job today and continues to take great steps with his game. He played his final three holes 3-under to really lift the team up. John showed a lot of maturity after being 4-over through four holes and battling back to shoot even. As a team, we did not play the par fours at a high-enough level and we need to do that better going forward.”
UCF leads the tournament after round one with an 8-under 280, five shots better than second-place Florida. Individually, California’s Finigan Tilly and UNLV’s Jack Trent lead all individuals after each carded a 5-under 67.
The second round of the tournament continues on Monday.
“Tomorrow is our next opportunity for us to grow as a team and we need all five guys bringing the right competitive mindset, playing the next shot, and playing Vanderbilt Golf,” said Limbaugh.
