In addition, he posted eight birdies while shooting minus-three on the par-five holes during the course of the event.

Sophomore John McCord shaved off seven strokes from his opening round to fire off a field-leading score of 69 on Monday. He finished the tournament with a score of 145, which placed him in a tie for fourth overall. McCord topped the competition by shooting even on 28 holes, to go along with a minus-one performance on the par fives.

Junior Bobby Holden, senior Mike Caston Jr. and senior Nick Johnson all finished within a stroke of each other to land among the top 30 of the tournament. Holden led this trio with two rounds of 75, while Caston (77-74) and Johnson (79-72) signed their scorecards with a 151.
