    The afternoon round has just started and scores are typically over par. We should pass a few teams -- but will need a major miracle to qualify.

    Our results in Rounds 1 and 2 are especially disappointing. The field of 30 teams was divided into the "upper half," including #8 Duke, and the lower half. BYU, ranked 29, was allowed to join the upper half because it had already played its "Sunday round" and got a pass for an early start on Friday. Omitting BYU, Duke was last among the upper-half teams in both Round 1 and Round 2.

    I hadn’t thought of this until now, but BYU won’t play at all tomorrow because it is Sunday and BYU doesn’t play on Sunday. So when is/was their third round (holes 37-54)? This afternoon?

    It played Round 3 on Thursday and shot +21 309. This means that the greenskeepers had to scurry around on Thursday and create the pin positions just for BYU.

    Not so much on the passing a few afternoon teams. Our +17 remains the second-worst of the day, behind only last-place BYU’s +19. Carolina firmly on the bubble going into tomorrow’s third round. Wake in solid position.

    Closing the loop, Duke shot a respectable +6 today,’and moved up four places as a result. But they did not finish in the top 15, so their season ends today.

    Yep. Good showing -- 19 shots better than in Round 1.

    Kudos to defending champion Oklahoma State, which leads the medal play by 25 shots -- minus (-) 12 to +13 for Texas and Stanford.

    Wait, wait! It's not Over -- Duke's Chandler Eaton Continues Individual Play

    Aha! There is more Duke men's golf to entertain or torture us. Chandler Eaton, T11 and +1, qualified to play for the individual championship, which will be awarded after today's play. He tees off at 12:17 CDT. Leader is Matthew Wolff of Oklahoma State at -7.

    A wrap-up on the NCAA championship. Duke golfer Chandler Eaton tied for 15th in individual scoring, good enough for All-America recognition. Matthew Wolff of Oklahoma State won the individual title.

    Stanford (the #6 seed) won the team title 3-2 over #5 seed Texas which had taken out #1 seed Oklahoma State. Seems like the seeding often doesn't hold when the team match-ups occur.

    True for the men and doubly true for the women, where Duke was the only high seed to progress.

    What is impressive is that the "cream rose to the top" in stroke play. Among the men, the top six qualifiers for match play were top ten teams -- joined by #17 A&M and unranked SMU. Among the women, the top seven qualifiers were top ten teams, joined by #13 Auburn in eighth place.
