Clemson in Second after Second round of Puerto Classic

Feb. 28, 2009

Clemson, SC–Kyle Stanley fired a five under par 67 and Phillip Mollica and Ben Martin added rounds of 69 to lead Clemson to a 275 team score on the second day of the Puerto Rico Classic in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. Clemson stands in second place, seven shots behind number-one ranked Georgia entering the final round. Clemson has a seven shot lead for second over third place NC State entering the final round on the par 72 Rio Mar Course.

Stanley had a consistent five under par round and stands at five under par 139 after two rounds. David May is Clemson’s top golfer for the two days after two rounds with scores of 68 and 70. He is in third place in the individual race. Stanley, an All-American and Ben Hogan Award candidate, is in sixth place. Martin has had rounds of 69-71 and is in a tie for 10th place.

Clemson actually had four players under par and another at par for Saturday’s outstanding season best 13-under par round. Mollica started slowly with a double bogey on his second hole, but finished strong to score his three under par round for the day. It was a great comeback for the senior who had a 77 in round one. Sam Saunders had an even par 72 on Saturday and stands at two over par for the tournament.

The final round will be played on Sunday.
