ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – The No. 16 Georgia College golf team shot two-over par in the first two rounds Monday at the Jay Jennison Memorial, good for a tie for second place with one round to go.
The Bobcats fired rounds of 285 and 293 on the par-72, 7,073-yard course at The Palencia. Georgia College is tied with Lander University, with both squads just three strokes behind leader and host Flagler College.
Both senior Bryan Fox (Roswell, Ga.) and sophomore David Sullivan (Woodstock, Ga.) sit ninth at even par. Sullivan started with a two-under 70, followed with a 74, and Fox inverted the scores, saving the two-under round for the second frame.
Junior Ryan Trocchio (Norcross, Ga.) is a single stroke behind that Bobcat pair, one over after rounds of 71 and 74. Trocchio owns 16th. Seniors Pontus Andersson (Helsingborg, Sweden) and Victor Monte (Chantilly, Va.) are both 27th at three-over par, posting identical rounds of 72 and 75.
Alex Weare of Queens University (N.C.) owns the individual lead at six-under par with scorching rounds of 68 and 70. Weare holds off Lander's Rob Prior and Shad Tuten of Armstrong Atlantic State University by two strokes.
