Yamauchi opens with 6-over 77
University of Hawaii at Hilo’s Dalen Yamauchi fired a 6-over-par 77 and was tied for 67th place after the first round of the NCAA Division II Golf Championship on Monday in Hershey, Pa.
The national tournament is being played at the Hershey Country Club.
The UHH sophomore is the only Vulcan competing in the tournament. He was in an eight-way tie for 67th heading into today’s second round on the 7,061-yard course designed by George Fazio.
Veteran UHH coach Earl Tamiya accompanied Yamauchi to the national tournament.
Yamauchi, a former Waiakea High School standout, qualified for the national championship by placing high in the West Regional. As a team, the Vulcans did not qualify for the national event.
Barry University’s Adam Svensson had a 3-under-par 68 on Monday and was the indivdual leader. Svensson held a one-shot lead over Grand Canyon’s Jimmy Kozikowski, Lynn’s Roberto Francioni and Florida Southern’s Case Gard. Four players were another stroke back and tied for 5th place.
