TIFFIN, Ohio - The Saginaw Valley State University men's golf team had a stellar opening day at the 2016 Kyle Ryman Memorial Tournament. The Cardinals had four scores under par in the first 36 holes of play, tying a school record for a 36-hole score with a 573.
In the first round, Jared Lyons and Austin Carter each fired a one-under 71 to pace the Cardinals. Dustin Pumford shot a level par score of 72 while Ryan Peruski and Mason Motte carded scores of 73. That put SV with a score of 287, seven strokes behind Ferris State's opening 280.
The Cardinals improved by a single stroke to fire a 286 in the second round. Peruski posted a career-low round of 66 (-6) for the second round. Carter had a two-under par score of 70 as well. Pumford, Motte and Lyons all registered scores of 75 in the second.
Peruski leads after 36 holes with his five-under score of 139. Carter is tied for fourth with his tally of 141 (-3). Lyons is tied for 14th with his two-over score of 146.
The 573 (-2) score matches the 2006 team's score, which was posted at the Bay Valley Invitational at the Bay Valley Resort. Saginaw Valley is five strokes behind Ferris after 36 holes to sit in second place.
Saginaw Valley returns to the course on Sunday to finish the weekend with 18 holes at the Mowhawk Golf and Country Club in Tiffin, Ohio.
