Missouri State golfers wrap up day two at Cuthbert Cup
The Missouri State men’s and women’s golf teams wrapped up day two of competition at the 54-hole Cuthbert Cup Monday afternoon at the Osprey and Cougar Point in Kiawah Island, S.C. After two rounds both MSU squads sit in 11th place in the 13-team field, while freshman Jack Courington enters Tuesday’s final round tied for sixth overall on the men’s side.
Courington fired a second-round 73 after and currently sits in a four-way tie for sixth with William and Mary’s Brent Paladino, Washington State’s Kevin Tucker and UNC-Wilmington’s Michael Taylor at one-under par (143) for the tournament. Senior Damaso Carrera also shot a 73 Monday for the Bears, who entered play in 10th after an opening-round 307.
The MSU men will enter Tuesday’s final round 27 shots off the pace of co-leaders UNC-Wilmington and Washington State, who lead third-place College of Charleston by just one stroke.
The Missouri State women entered Monday’s competition in eighth place after shooting 304 in Sunday’s opening round. The Bears carded 320 Monday, led by rounds of 78 by both Lyndsey Adams and Stacey Rodger, who enter Tuesday’s competition in 37th and 42nd place, respectively.
MSU enters the final round 41 strokes off the pace of tournament host College of Charleston, which leads the event by three strokes over second-place UNC-Wilmington.
Pairings for Tuesday’s round will use the combined totals from both the men’s and women’s teams to form the foursome that will tee off in a shotgun format at 7 a.m. (CST).
