Lingmerth is just two strokes begin the tournament leaders Conrad von Borsig (Virginia), Ryan Haselden (Vanderbilt), and Joe David (Ole Miss).“David had a good day for us and he could have been at the very top of the pack but he double-bogied his third to last hole today, ” head coach Brad McMakin said of Lingmerth. Jason Cuthbertson slipped down into at 26th place after scoring a 75 in round two for a 4-over 148(73-75). Also tied for No. 26 is Arkansas golfer Andrew Landry who shot 74 in both rounds. “We are still hitting the ball well, losing some strokes on our middle game, but it is difficult to win a tournament against the caliber of teams we are playing when Landry is playing average, which doesn’t happen very often.”Will Osborne, now tied at No. 36, is 6-over for the tournament after shooting a 150(76-74). Freshman golfer Ethan Tracy followed up in a tie for No. 51. Tracy had a difficult first day shooting an 11-over 83, but came back in the second round to shoot a 1-under 71.“Ethan came back and gave us a nice round. We played a lot better today, but yesterday is what hurt us and we are still recovering from that. Winning tournaments is about not making mistakes, here and there strokes add up.”“We just look forward to Sunday and hope that we are able to stay competitive, move up and make this a descent tournament for us, ” Coach McMakin said. The team is set to play the final round on Sunday, with Ethan Tracy teeing off at 8:30 EST. Live scoring is available for the event at golfstat.com.
