HUTCHINSON, Kan. ( – UCF senior golfer Ricardo Gouveia has his work cut out for him at the NCAA Championship this weekend. He is not only battling the rest of the field, but Mother Nature and an unusual schedule as well.

After play was suspended multiple times due to inclement weather on day one of the championship Friday, Gouveia would have to wait until Saturday morning to begin his first round.

He responded well, carding a two-under par 68 finishing tied for 15th and just four shots off the pace. In order to keep the tournament on schedule, players also began the second round Saturday.

Gouveia began his second round with three pars but struggled on his 22nd and 23rd hole of the day, posting back-to-back double bogies. He charged back with four-straight pars to finish +5 before having to cut the round short once again. Having only completed 14 holes of his second round, Gouveia will have to complete 22 holes to finish the championship Sunday.

The remainder of round two at Prairie Dunes Country Club is set to begin at 7 a.m. Sunday.
