â€śIt went much better today, and my putting was much more solid,â€ť Muehl said. â€śI was able to make some important saves to keep my score together. My short game is getting better and better every day, so I am excited about that continuing tomorrow. Coach and I are going to enjoy the course for the last time and show what the Bucs can do.â€ť
