"We didn't play badly today," head coach Scott Lieberwirth said. "We need to make more birdies and we had a few bogies that we shouldn't have but I thought we had a solid round. It will take a magical final round for us to make the NCAA Championship but we have players that can do it."
For the second straight day the NM State men's golf team along with the rest of the field, were forced off the course due to weather conditions. The delay lasted an hour and 35 minutes.
