Junior J.D. Tomlinson Carded Another 75 in Round Two of Regionals

Starting off the morning by sinking a birdie on ten, junior J.D. Tomlinson shot a 75 for the second consecutive day to wrap up round two action at the East Regional at Auburn University Club today.

 

Tomlinson bogeyed on the par-4 13th hole and once more on the back nine on the par-5 16th. He penciled in another birdie on 18 before heading to the front nine where he double bogeyed the first hole, but then shot even the rest of the way before bogeying on nine.  

 

Tomlinson now sits T32, still trailing Austin Peay’s Marco Iten who shot a 70 today and is now 3-under overall in third place. The rest of the individuals improved in round two, as Harvard’s Theodore Lederhausen carded a 76 (T61), Ole Miss’ Blake Morris notched a 78 (T65) and Troy’s Jared Bettcher fired a 75 (T73).

 

No. 1 Alabama still paces the field of 14, distancing themselves by 15 strokes over second place No. 25 Auburn.

 

Buddy’s Bite: “Today was a little bit déjà vu. He drove the ball beautifully but was not sharp with his irons and his short game. Consequently, he’s only made three birdies in 36 holes. It’s tough to compete without making birdies, but we’re on the range working on it and hopefully he’ll get it all figured out and play a little better tomorrow.”
