Clemson 10th After Second Round of Isleworth Invitational

Oct. 27, 2008

Clemson, SC — Kyle Stanley shot a two-under par 70, the top round among Clemson golfers so far in the tournament, leading the Tigers to a 10th place standing after two rounds of the Isleworth-UCF Invitational at Windermere, FL. Clemson has a team score of 18 over par through 36 holes for the 10th place ranking in the 18-team field. The Tournament is being played at the par 72 Isleworth Golf and Country Club in Windermere, FL.

Clemson had a 298 team score on Monday after a 296 on Sunday. Georgia has the team lead at five under par through 36 holes, including an 11-under par team round on Monday that was the top team round of the tournament so far.

The field includes eight of the top 10 teams in the latest Golf World Coaches poll. Clemson is just one shot behind top ranked Oklahoma State and 2007 National Champion Stanford. The Tigers are ahead of 2008 National Champion UCLA.

Stanley, a junior, who already has a victory to his credit this year when he won the Carpet Classic in Dalton, GA in September, has a 36-hole score of 142 and stands in a tie for seventh place individually. Stanley had five birdies, a bogey, and a double bogey on Monday. The double bogey came on the par three 11th hole. Monday marked the second straight day that Stanley had played the par five holes at three under par.

Clemson’s second best golfer overall and on Monday was Phillip Mollica. The senior from Anderson, SC had a 75 after carding a 74 on Sunday. He stands in 30th place at five over par 149. Mollica had one birdie and four bogeys for his Monday performance.

Sam Saunders, who lists Windermere, FL as his hometown, started slowly and was five over par through five holes. But, he played the last 13 holes in even par, including two birdies over the last three holes, and hopefully that will give him momentum going into the final round. Saunders has a two-day score of 151, good enough for 51st place.

Senior David May had his second straight round of 76 and stands in 59th place after two rounds. May had six bogeys and two birdies after carding four bogeys and 14 pars in the first round.

Red-shirt freshman Alex Boyd shot a 79 on Monday and his score did not count towards the team total. He had a 78 in the opening round.
