STANFORD, Calif. - SUU's Fidel Concepcion started play at the Stanford Golf Course as part of NCAA Regional action on Monday, and ended the day with a 75 on his scorecard.
Concepcion struggled to start the day, carding a bogey on thee of the first four holes and doubling the fifth. Fortunately, he was able to birdie the second hole of the day. His play improved from there, as he got a par on holes six, seven and eight before getting a birdie on the ninth hole.
He went into the turn three-over.
Concepcion went on to par the first five holes of the back nine, before having to record a double bogey on the 15th hole. He bounced back strong with a birdie on hole 16 before finishing out with a par and a bogey on 17 and 18 respectively.
His five-over 75 put him in a tie for 53rd in the field with seven other golfers. As far as individuals go, he is seventh in the field.
There are 36 holes remaining over the next two days.
“He struggled a little with his short game on some very tough greens,” SUU head coach Richard Church said. “But he was able to grind out a respectable round.”
Maverick McNealy from Stanford and Brad Dalke from Oklahoma are leading the way on the leaderboard, shooting five-under 65's.
