Head Coach Tim Baldwin
Thought on the Round: We played very well in stretches today but left a lot of shots out there. We need to play well tomorrow, keep mistakes to a minimum and push for a top-three finish. Andoni and Hogan are both in the Top 20 at the moment and need some support from the rest of the team.
-The Warhawks will be on the course tomorrow morning for a shotgun start at 10:00 a.m. CST for the final round of the Redhawk Invitational.
