Las Vegas, NV- Clemson shot a four-over par 292 in the second round of the Southern Highlands Collegiate Championship in Las Vegas, NV. The Tigers trail leader Arizona State by 16 shots, as the Sun Devils shot a tournament-high 276 on Saturday. Also ahead of Clemson in the team standings are a pair of SEC schools, Florida (-18) and Georgia (-6).

Jack Ferguson, who shot a first round 66, had an up-and-down day on Saturday. He shot a 32 on the front nine, which included an eagle three on the par 5 ninth hole. He shot 42 on the back nine to give him a two-over 74 for the second round. He is tied for 13th in the individual race heading into the final round.

Matt Hendrix led the Tigers with a three-under 69 on Saturday. He carded five birdies and is now four-under for the tournament, good enough to tie Ferguson for 13th in the individual standings. Gregg Jones struggled to a six-over 78 after an even par 72 in the first round on Friday. His score did not count for Clemson on Saturday, the only time in his 19 rounds this season in which his score failed to contribute towards Clemson’s total.

Brian Duncan continued his fine play, as he shot a two-over 74. Duncan shot a two-under 70 in the first round, and his total of 144 after two rounds puts him in a tie for 25th place. Brent Delahoussaye was steady with a three-over par 75, which is also what he shot in the first round. He birdied the final hole of his second round for the Tigers.

The final round of the Southern Highlands Championship will be completed Sunday.
