Ospreys Tied for Sixth: Phelan sits in third place tie.


The UNF Men’s Golf team dropped back a couple of spots, sitting in a sixth place tie, after round two of the 2010 NCAA South Central Men’s Golf Regional, Friday, at Texas A&M’s Traditions Club Golf Course in Bryan, Texas.

The Ospreys dropped from sitting in third place after day one by shooting a 298 on Friday to bring them to 2-over-par for the tournament after two days. The performance is a major downgrade for the Ospreys after shooting a 280 on Thursday.

UNF is tied for sixth place with Auburn University who moved up a spot from seventh place after shooting a 290 for day two.

Heading in to the final day of the tournament the Ospreys find themselves 13 strokes back of host team Texas A&M, who sits in first place with an 11-under-par 565.

Following close behind Texas A&M is Texas Tech who is just one stroke back with a 10-under-par 566. Texas Christian University, who was tied for first after day one, sits in third place after a shooting a two day total of 568 to hold steady at 8-under-par.

The other two teams ahead of the Ospreys are Wichita State University and Pepperdine University who sit at 3-under-par and 2-under-par respectively.

Jackson State University continues to have a strangle hold on last place. JSU sits at 97-over-par after two days. They find themselves 108 strokes back of first place.

UNF freshman Kevin Phelan, who was in a first place tie after day one, still finds himself among the individual leaders after day two. However, Phelan dropped back to a third place tie after shooting just even par for day two. Phelan sits at 6-under-par for the tournament. He is just two strokes back of leaders Dustin Garza of Wichita State and Ignacio Elvira of Texas A&M who both sit at 8-under-par.

Osprey sophomore Sean Dale turned in a round two 1-over-par 73 which drops him to even par for the tournament. Dale finds himself tied for twentieth after day two. Fellow sophomore Joe Byun finds himself sitting at 5-over-par for the tournament. Byun shot a 6-over-par 78 for round two.

Senior J.C. Horne shot a 3-over-par 75 to sit at 4-over-par for the tournament. Fellow senior Jordan Gibb had a disappointing day after shooting a 9-over-par 81 to put him at 9-over-par for the tournament. Gibb shot an even par 72 on day one.

UNF tees off at 7:50 a.m. Saturday. Gibb will start the Ospreys off from the first tee on the final day of the tournament.
