April 17, 2010
BRYAN, Texas -- Texas freshman Cody Gribble shot a 2-under 70 in both rounds Saturday to pace the fifth-ranked Longhorns at the Aggie Invitational at the par 72, 7,146-yard Traditions Golf Club.
The 12-team event strays from the current college golf scoring format, as each team features six players with the low five scores counting toward the team score. Texas collectively shot a 1-under 359 in round one and followed with an 8-over 368 in the second round to finish the day in fifth place at 7-over par.
Host Texas A&M sits in first at 23-under par, and Oklahoma State holds second at 8-under par. Texas Tech sits in third at 7-under par, and San Diego State is in fourth place at 2-under par. Individually, San Diego State's Tom Berry, Texas A&M's Geoff Shaw and Oklahoma State's Kevin Tway hold the lead through 36 holes at 6-under par.
Gribble (Dallas, Texas) scattered nine birdies through 36 holes on Saturday, and with his 4-under effort on the day, Gribble is tied for sixth heading into Sunday's final round. Sophomore Dylan Frittelli (Pretoria, South Africa), a semifinalist for the Ben Hogan Award, fired a 2-under 70 in round one and shot a 3-over 75 in round two. Frittelli is tied for 22nd place at 1-over heading into round three.
Junior Bobby Hudson (Memphis, Tenn.) shot a 1-under 71 in round one and followed with a 2-over 74 in round two. Hudson joins Frittelli in a tie for 22nd place at 1-over par. Senior Charlie Holland (Dallas, Texas) scattered nine birdies on the day while carding an even-par 72 in round one and a two-over 74 in round two. Holland is tied for 31st place at 2-over par heading into the final round.
Freshman Johnathan Schnitzer (Houston, Texas) shot a 4-over 76 in the round one before carding a 3-over 75 in round two. Schnitzer is tied for 53rd place at 7-over par. Senior Lance Lopez (Missouri City, Texas) finished with a 7-over 79 in both rounds Saturday and is in 74th place at 15-over par.
