Pinehurst Day 2 - Results

PINEHURST, N.C. – Senior Brian Anania (Hurricane, W.Va.) and freshman Clark Robinson (South Windsor, Conn.) sit as part of a four-way tie for 19th place with two-day totals of 13-over-par 154 after competing in the second round at Pinehurst No. 2, Monday, in Pinehurst, N.C.

With help from Anania’s and Robinson’s leading scores, Marshall men’s golf is in a two-way tie with Richmond for sixth place out of a 10-team field at 59-over 623. The Herd sits 32 strokes behind leader No. 50 UNCG (GolfStat.com), which shot a 9-over 289 to bring its combined total to 27-over 591.

The team enjoyed a unique opportunity to play at par-70, 7,268-yard Pinehurst No. 2, site of the 2014 U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open. Marshall coach Matt Grobe commented on the state of the course.

“What a great day for golf,” Grobe said. “Pinehurst No. 2 was in great shape and the weather was ideal. What a great opportunity for our players to get a look at a course that is going to host the U.S. Open in three months. We played much better today, even though the score didn’t show it.”

After Day 2 Marshall stands:

Brian Anania – T19 (78, 76 – 154)
Clark Robinson – T19 (76, 78 – 154)
Logan Lagodich – T33 (79, 80 – 159)

Will Evans – T50 (90, 79 – 169)


 

 

Jeremy Rogers (individual) – T23 (79, 76 – 155)

“This was an incredible test for our team,” Grobe said. “I am really looking forward to tomorrow. We haven’t really played our best golf yet this spring and I hope tomorrow we can put together a great final round.”

Play concludes in the final round tomorrow at Pinehurst No. 8. Live stats during will be available through GolfStat.com.
