We started the morning in rain and we had cold temperatures all day. The winds were pretty consistent 25 to 35 mph with gusts over 40. The biggest challenge for everyone was to manage the conditions staying warm but also being able to swing with all the layers on,” said Drake head coach Matt Lewis. “The course played extremely difficult all day. I thought several guys played pretty well from start to finish.” “We know a good round tomorrow will give us a good finish. Tomorrow is going to be extremely cold temperatures with high in the 20s to 30s but the wind should be down,” said Lewis.
