Monday February 25, 2013Men's Golf Moves Up Leaderboard on Second Day of John Hayt Collegiate Invitational

Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Coming into the second day of the John Hayt Collegiate Invitational the University of Florida men’s golf team was in sixth place. The team then recorded a 295 (+7) on Monday, February 25 to propel them into a four-way tie for fourth place at the Sawgrass Country Club.

 

“Given the conditions today, we played better than we did yesterday,” head coach Buddy Alexander said. “We got off to a rough start, but made a pretty good comeback.”

 

Sophomore J.D. Tomlinson (Gainesville, Fla.) put together the best round of his season, relative to par, to lead the Gators. Tomlinson began his second round with two bogeys on two of the first three holes of the par-72, 6,910 yard course. He responded with five birdies against one bogey over the final 15 holes to finish with a 70 (-2). It marked his lowest round, relative to par, since last year’s SEC Championship when he carded a 68 (-2) in the second round. The Gainesville, Fla. native is currently in a tie for ninth place going into tomorrow’s final round.

 

Fellow sophomore Eric Banks (Truro, Canada) also rebounded from a rough start. The Canadian was six-over par following his first six holes of the day. He compiled five birdies against one bogey in the 12 holes to finish at two-over par.

 

Senior T.J. Vogel (Cooper City, Fla.) shot a 75 (+3) on the second day of the event. Vogel is even-par for the tournament and is tied for 12th place.

 

Classmate Tyler McCumber (Ponte Vedra, Fla.) recorded a 76 (+4) for the second round. The Ponte Vedra, Fla. native is four-over par for the tournament and is tied for 31st place after two rounds.

 

Redshirt sophomore Santiago Gavino (San Luis Potosi, Mexico) completed the Gator lineup, registering a 79 (+7) for the second round.

 

Competing as an individual, freshman A.J. Crouch (Jacksonville, Fla.) recorded a 76 (+4) to bring his two-round total to 147 (+3). In his first event of the spring season, Crouch is tied for 28th place.

 

The tournament will come to a close tomorrow with the final round at the Sawgrass Country Club. Live scoring will be available on www.golftstat.com.
