UHV Golf Leading at PGA Minority Tournament

Posted: Updated:

The University of Houston-Victoria Jaguars are just nine holes away from their fourth PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship. The Jaguars hold a four-shot lead over Governor’s State university going into Sunday’s nine-hole final round after a change in schedule on Saturday.

With rain in the forecast for Sunday’s final round, the PGA of America Rules committee decided late Friday to play 27 holes on Saturday, thus leaving the final nine holes of the championship scheduled for Sunday. The Jaguars, trying to defend last year’s title, posted a 45-hole total 774 and were four shots better than Governors State University (778).

The Jaguars posted a second round 314 to go with their opening round 307, and then added a 153 on the final nine holes of the day for their 774. James Rollins paces the Jaguars with a 45-hole score of 193 after carding a 77-76-40 and is in second place individually, nine shots of the lead of leader Matt Contey of GSU, who is in at 184.

Juan Day Coy follows Rollins with a 193 after rounds of 75-82-37, while Cristian Esparza is in at 196 with rounds of 80-78-38. Terry Strickland is in with a 198 on rounds of 76-78-44 and Adrian Saenz is in at 202 with rounds of 79-85-38-202. Meanwhile, the UHV women’s team remained in seventh place in the women’s division posting a 45-hole score of 902 with rounds of 367-359-176.

Bethune Cookman leads the division with a 751, while the University of the Incarnate Word is in second at 782 and North Carolina AT&T is third at 787.

Leah Lerma leads the Jaguars with a 217 with rounds of 88-83-46, while Jocelyn Villafranca follows at 221 with rounds of 89-90-42. Reid Whaley is in at 224 with rounds of 92-89-43, and Jo Ellen Canales is in at 240 with rounds of 98-97-45.

The final round is scheduled to tee off at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday.
