The Bulldogs have three of the top four players on the scoreboard heading into the final round. Sophomore Camilo Benedetti (Medellin, Colombia/Instituto Jorge Robledo) posted a four-under par 140 to stand tied for 11th, while freshman Bubba Dickerson (Hilliard, Fla./West Nassau) is tied for 18th at two-under 142.
