TOLEDO, Ohio The third-ranked Georgia men’s golf team is tied for third place after two rounds at the PING/Golfweek Preview.
On Monday at the Inverness Club, the site of the 2009 NCAA Championship, the Bulldogs shot a 1-over-par 285 to move to 7-over 575 for the tournament. Georgia is 16 strokes behind Oklahoma State (which has an 8-shot lead over second-place Tennessee) and is tied with Clemson.
Senior Adam Mitchell paced the Bulldogs with a 1-under 70 in the second round. Senior Brian Harman signed for an even-par 71, while junior Hudson Swafford and sophomore Russell Henley each carded a 1-over 72. Freshman Patrick Reed had the Bulldogs’ non-counting score of 6-over 77.
“I thought we had another solid day,” Georgia coach Chris Haack said. “We gave away some shots that would have put more in contention, but the guys handled the golf course pretty well. We’re looking for a strong close on Tuesday.”
Mitchell is in ninth place individually at even-par 142, seven shots behind Oklahoma State’s Morgan Hoffmann. Swafford and Henley are tied for 23rd at 3-over 145, followed by Harman in 34th at 6-over 148 and Reed in 39th at 7-over 149.
The 54-hole tournament will conclude on Tuesday. Live scoring and tee times can be found at golfstat.com.
