Edfort In Contention After Day One Of The Oregon Duck Invitational

Eugene, Ore. – After the opening day of the Oregon Duck Invitational on Monday, March 26, junior Alex Edfort has put himself into contention for the tournament title with one round to play.  After 36 holes at the Eugene Country Club, Edfort sits in fifth place overall and just three strokes off the lead after posting a -3, 141 on day one.  Edfort trails a pair of golfers, Anders Engell (St. Mary's) and Eugene Wong (Oregon) who entered the clubhouse at -6 to pace the field.

As a team, the Tigers find themselves in sixth place on the leaderboard after a first day team score of +13.  The leader in the clubhouse after the first day of action was the host Ducks, who carded a -13 through the first two rounds of action.

Outside of Edfort, the Tigers saw their other upperclassmen, senior Dan Garcia, put together a strong showing on the first day of play as Garcia sits in a tie for ninth.  Garcia ended the day at even-par after going one-over on the first 18 holes before posting a one-under, 71, in round two.

The Tigers will look for their two upperclassmen to make a move on the final day of action at the tournament on Tuesday, March 27 when the teams tee off at 8:30 am.
