Golf falling behind


The UA men's golf team is struggling in the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational in Windermere, Fla.



The team has slipped into 15th place heading into the last round of the tournament. The Wildcats have been led by senior Tarquin MacManus who is in a tie for eighth place and is one over par.



The rest of the team continues to struggle. Jonathan Khan and Philip Bagdade are tied at 58th place and Trent Redfern is in 67th place.



Head coach Rick LaRose has raved about Eric Oja all year, saying he will be the future of the program. So far, the freshman has only played well enough to earn 73rd place.



The Wildcats are chasing Alabama, who has a strong hold on first place with a four stroke lead over Louisiana State and Stanford. The Crimson Tide is shooting 7-over-par as a team.
