McLeroy Stumbles on Final Day of NCAA Regionals
May 18, 2013
After playing near flawless golf for two rounds, senior Mitchell McLeroy struggled in the third and final round of the NCAA Regional Championships firing a 13-over 85 on the par-72, Blessings Course, in Fayetteville, Ark. McLeroy finished with a three-round 69-71-85 - 225 to place tied for 26th overall.
McLeroy's final-round score was costly dropping him out of a first-place tie. After recording only six bogeys in the first two rounds, McLeroy recorded seven bogeys, and three doubles Saturday. McLeroy entered the day four-under par, but watched his lead evaporate by going seven over on the first five holes of the day.
McLeroy concludes his SFA career becoming the first Lumberjack to earn a trip to the NCAA Regional Championships in back-to-back seasons in the NCAA Division I era.
