Cameron Moves Up Two Spots At RegionalsMay 8, 2012
JEFFERSON CITY (May 8, 2012) — Cameron shot a 295 on day two of the regional tournament, the score is seven strokes better than the opening day and places the Aggies in 10th place with a 597 heading into the final day. CU is seven strokes away from a top three finish and 22 strokes off the pace of the leader, Central Missouri.
“We played quite a bit like we did yesterday,” said Head Coach Jerry Hrnciar. “We made four more birdies. We gave away some shots on par-5s, but we are playing pretty good.”
Trey Lawson lit the course up today, finishing with a 71 for a total of 145 (+1). He is currently tied for 6th place overall. Brady Porter finished his round in a tie for 27th with a 149 (+5), after shooting a 73 on the day. Garrett Smith shot a 75 for a 151 (+7), tying him for 46th place. Kregg Wood remained on his pace with a 76. His combined score of 152 (+8) has him tied for 53rd. Michael Kelly shot an 83 for a two-day score of 160 (+16). He is in 99th place.
“Trey (Lawson) played really well today,” Hrnciar said. “Everyone today played good in stretches. We are making difficult short putts but not making any puts outside of six feet.”
Central Missouri remains atop the leader board with a 575. Jared King pulled ahead of Travis Shooks to take sole possession of first place with a 139 (-5). Central Oklahoma and Washburn are tied for second with a 590. Indianapolis and Grand Valley State are in fourth and fifth with a 591 and a 592, respectively.
“We need to finish fifth,” Hrnciar said. “If we shoot a 292 or better tomorrow I think we can make it. The pressure is on tomorrow. It’s going to be a little harder to go low (on scores). I really feel like a 292 will do it.”
The tournament will conclude with the final round tomorrow. Cameron will tee off at noon.
