PALM SPRINGS, Calif. – Federico Zucchetti shot a 1-under 71 and Ivan Ramirez birdied No. 18 for a 1-over 73, leading No. 5 Texas Tech to fourth place among 22 teams after Friday’s first round of the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate.
Standout newcomer Fredrik Nihlen has been sick this week, a Tech spokesman said, and didn’t play. The transfer from Kennesaw State has won two of his first four tournaments since joining the Red Raiders.
