PALO ALTO, Calif. – The No. 14 UAB men’s golf team remains in sixth place at The Goodwin after two rounds of play. UAB fired a 288 (+7) on the second day at the Stanford University Golf Course and is tied with St. Mary’s (Calif.) at 567 (+7).
Conditions were tough for the second round of competition at the par-70, 6,727-yard course. Play was delayed due to inclement weather, before completing the second 18 holes in the late afternoon.
Junior Paul Dunne was the top Blazer competitor on Saturday in Palo Alto, Calif. Dunne recorded two birdies on the front nine and then dropped to one-under par for the round after a bogey on No. 14. Dunne, who recorded his 13th round at or under par of 2013-14, is one-under par for the event and is tied for 12th place heading into the final round.
Senior Wilson McDonald, sitting at two-over for the round at No. 11, rallied off consecutive birdies on No. 15 and 16 to register a 70 (E). McDonald now has 14 rounds at or under par this year, which leads the squad, and is tied with Dunne at one-under for the tournament.
Classmate Thomas Sutton followed McDonald’s lead and birdied No. 15 and 16 to finish at 74 strokes (+4) for the day. Sutton owns a 144 (+4) heading into tomorrow’s third and final round and is tied for 38th place.
