WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Marshall men’s golf senior Clark Robinson put together a strong second round and climbed up eight spots to finish as the individual leader of the Kingsmill Intercollegiate on a windy Monday afternoon. Marshall as a team stood pat at fifth place and finished the second round with a 21-over-par 581, a seven-stroke improvement from round one.
Robinson began the tournament with a 1-over 71 in the first round. The senior improved by five strokes to tie his career-low 4-under-par 66, as he birdied in five holes this afternoon.

Penn State jumped one spot to grab the top position from yesterday’s leader, Louisville, with a 7-over 567. Tennessee trails Penn State by three strokes and third place Louisville by six strokes.

Head coach Matt Grobe
“Once again the guys played well today! I really like the way we are playing. Clark played incredible today. The course conditions were tough and the winds were swirling. Shooting a 66 was really impressive. Hopefully we show even more improvement tomorrow and work our way up the leaderboard.”
