Eagles in Sixth After Two Rounds at Cleveland Golf Palmetto Intercollegiate
“It was a beautiful day today, the best we’ve had all spring,” said head coach Larry Mays. “We played well and finished strong with two guys under par. We’re still trying to get our third and fourth scores a little lower, but I’m proud of the team for hanging in there today.”
Chattanooga slid into first place slicing eight strokes from its opening round score for a team 562 total and bests Liberty in second by four strokes. Furman stands in third with a 569 (281-288), while Clemson carded a 571 through two rounds to stand in fourth heading into the final round to take place on Tuesday, March 9. Virginia rounds out the top 5 at 13-over (573).
Senior Zabroske (Alpharetta, Ga.) and junior Monte (Chantilly, Va.) matched identical rounds of 72s and 69s on the first day. Both carded 141s on the opening day and stand in a tie for 11th place at 1-over par. Monte and Zabroske highlighted their rounds with eagles on the par 5, 518 yard 10th hole. Monte also was one of the top individuals on the day launching eight birdies over the first 36 holes.
Meanwhile, Florian Sander (Bregenz, Austria) and Matt Deal (Statesboro, Ga.) flip-flopped rounds of 73s and 74s to card matching 147s through two rounds. Both Eagles stand in a tie for 32nd.
Senior Spence Fulford (Rocky Mount, N.C.) rounded out Georgia Southern’s lineup owning a 153 on the opening day with rounds of 76 and 77, respectively. Fulford stands in a 59th-place tie entering the final round.
“If we have a solid round tomorrow and play smart golf, we will have a successful tournament and post a strong finish,” stated Mays. “We are looking forward to the final round tomorrow and having the chance to finish with a good round.”
The third and final round of the 54-hole 13th Annual Cleveland Golf Palmetto Intercollegiate will begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, March 9. Georgia Southern tees off at 9:40 a.m. led by Fulford on the front nine.
