MSU’s O’Keefe card opening-round 76

KENOSHA, Wis. – Minot State University sophomore Kowan O’Keefe shot a 4-over 76 in the first round of the NCAA Division II Super Regional golf tournament Monday at The Club at Strawberry Creek Golf Course.

O’Keefe’s round put him in a tie for 63rd out of 109 golfers. Central Missouri’s Robby Hughey carded a 7-under 65 to take a two-stroke lead into day two.

“(O’Keefe) isn’t where we thought he would be going into round two,” MSU coach Chipper Farrell said in a press release. “The good news is he has tomorrow to make adjustments and make up some ground. He has done well with those two things all year.”

O’Keefe tees off at 8:50 this morning.
