The Chattanooga Mocs men’s golf team fired a five-over par 289 today to take a significant step forward at the Querencia Cabo Collegiate Los Cabos Querencia. The Mocs (596) moved up to ninth-place, one shot behind No. 17 Arkansas (595).

For the second straight day, Ewan Scott (St. Andrews, Scotland) led the charge. Scott shot level-par 71 to pace a very consistent card for the team. Davis Bunn (Knoxville, Tenn.) added a one-over par 72, while Liam Johnston (Dumfries, Scotland) and Chris Robb (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) each tallied 73’s.

Scott moved up to a tie for 14th at four-over par 146. That’s just one shot out of the top 10. All six Mocs in the event improved on the leaderboard with Johnston second to Scott at 149 which is tied for 29th.

No. 11 Houston took sole possession of the lead with a one-over par 285. The Cougars are at five-over 573 which is four strokes ahead of Baylor (577) and five clear of No. 1 Alabama (578). Houston’s Roman Robledo matched his opening-round 68 for a six-under par 136. That provides him with a three-stroke advantage over Baylor’s Kyle Jones (139).

It was a good day for the Mocs. The 289 was the fifth-best team total of the day ranking behind just Baylor (281), Alabama (284), Houston (285) and Kentucky (287). It put Chattanooga with 10 shots of fifth (Vandy/SMU) and six behind seventh-place LSU.
