Mocs 12th At Golfweek Conference Challenge

Monday, September 16, 2013

The Chattanooga Mocs had a better score in round two of the Golfweek Conference Challenge improving by eight shots with a 297 Monday. There was a little carryover of yesterday’s finishing theme.

UTC was three-over par through 17 holes today before giving back six strokes on the final hole, the par four ninth with two doubles and a triple bogey.

“We came back strong for 17 holes today,” Head Coach Mark Guhne said. “Yesterday it was 12 holes, today 17. We have to close out our rounds. There is too much ability in this lineup to struggle at the end of rounds.”

Senior Davis Bunn (Knoxville, Tenn.) was the top Chattanooga performer on day two. He tallied four birdies and 12 pars turning in a two-under par 70. Freshman Brooks Thomas (Chattanooga) is low for the two days at three-over par 147. He turned in a one-over 73 today.

Benni Weilguni (Langenlois, Austria) and Chris Robb (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) rounded out the counting scores with twin 77’s. Ewan Scott (St. Andrews, Scotland) had the drop score with a 78.

Oklahoma fired a 10-under par 278 to take a 13-shot advantage over first round leader Houston. The Sooners are at 568 (-8) with the Cougars in second at 581. New Mexico is third at 582 with Virginia Tech (583) another stroke back in fourth.

There is a four-way tie atop the individual lead at minus three. Stewart Jolly (LSU), Tyler Merkel (Ball State), James Newton (Central Arkansas) and Beau Titsworth (OU) are one shot ahead of another quartet tied for fifth at 142.

It’s a shotgun start for the Mocs in Tuesday’s final round beginning at 9:30 a.m., Eastern time. Click the link above to access live scoring over the final 36 holes and follow @GoMocsMGLF on Twitter for updates.

Roy Exum: Our Double Travesties

Back when we were kids the old guys taught us how to throw a one-two punch. It’s pretty impressive if you do it right, which is to jab your left fist into the thug’s face and then, as though it was a symphony, complete the combination as you deliver a powerful right cross to the same nose. If the thug has a gun, it doesn’t work as well. But, boy, did our community ever get clobbered ... (click for more)
