Moll Paces Dores in Cabo

Vanderbilt sits in fourth place after carding 3-over 287 in Round 1 at the Cabo Collegiate

CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico – Graduate senior William Moll sits in a tie for eighth place after one round of play at the 2024 Cabo Collegiate, as carded 2-under 69 during Sunday’s opening round of play at Twin Dolphin Club in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Moll tied for the tournament lead on par-4 scoring at the end of Round 1, as was 2-under on par-4s. The Houston, Texas, native also collected the second-most birdies in the opening round of the Cabo Collegiate, as he shot 1-under on five holes.

As a team, Vanderbilt ended its first day of the 2024 Cabo Collegiate in fourth place, The Commodores carded 3-over 287 in Round 1 and sit 11 strokes off the lead going into Round 2 on Monday.

“I’m proud of William and the way he stepped up today and helped the team,” said Vanderbilt men’s golf head coach Scott Limbaugh. “He put in a lot of good practice after the first event and came out ready to play. I also thought Cole did a great job finding a way to get a score in without his best stuff and he putted great all day. As a team, we got off to a good start and battled well, but we didn’t finish the round to our standards which was disappointing. This course requires a lot of mental toughness and focus on every single shot because you just can’t get away with lapses in that area here. The challenge is always to be able to stay locked in on what it takes to execute each shot and that’s what we have to do more consistently tomorrow and going forward.”

Senior Cole Sherwood finished Round 1 at even par 71 to end in a tie for 21st. Junior Gordon Sargent concluded the round at 2-over 73 and sits in a tie for 34th. Sophomore Wells Williams rounded out the team scoring for Vanderbilt in the first round of the Cabo Collegiate, as the tournament’s defending individual champion carded 3-over 74 in Round 1.

Arizona State holds a one-stroke lead over Houston after 18 holes of play at the 2024 Cabo Collegiate, as the Sun Devils sit at 8-under 276. Tennessee’s Jake Hall holds the top spot on the player leaderboard at 4-under 67, as he holds a one-stroke lead going into Monday’s second round.
