COLUMBUS, Ohio - The third-ranked Georgia men's golf team remained within striking distance at the Ping-Golfweek Preview Invitational on Saturday by firing a 1-over-par 285.
The Bulldogs stand in third place at 7-over 575, four shots behind Clemson and two shots behind Florida. Georgia won the Preview a year ago on its way to a school-record six tournament titles.
"All we have ever asked of our guys is to be in contention heading into the final day," Georgia coach Chris Haack. "Fortunately, that's where we are heading into the last round. Our players have been very steady over the first couple of days and we'll need to keep that up on Sunday."
Through the first two rounds of the season, the Bulldogs have displayed the kind of consistency that made them so effective last year. The players with the four counting totals are separated by just five shots.
Senior David Miller fired the team's first under-par round of the year on Saturday as he carded a 3-under 68. That moved Miller to 1-under 141 for the tournament, tied for fifth place and four strokes behind Florida's Ari Savolainen.
