Clemson in Second Place at Yale Intercollegiate

Clemson, S.C.—Billy Kennerly shot a second-round 67 to pace Clemson to a 279 team total and a second place standing after two rounds of the Yale Spring Intercollegiate at the Yale Golf Course in New Haven, Conn.   Thirteen teams played 36 holes on the par 70 course that will be one of the sites for the NCAA Men’s Regional Tournament in a month.

WakeForest has the team lead after 36 holes with a 554 score, six-under-par.  Clemson is in second place nine shots back at 563, while Virginia is third at 569.  Duke is fourth at 570 and Yale is tied with MichiganState for fifth place at 580.   There are five ACC teams in the field overall and it is the last regular season event for all the conference teams before the ACC Tournament at the Old North State Club in North Carolina next weekend.

Clemson has a good history at the Yale Course.  Clemson won NCAA Regional Tournaments played at Yale in 1995 and 2004.

Kennerly was Clemson’s top player on Saturday with rounds of 72 and 67.  He stands in third place individually after 36 holes.  Davis Womble of Wake Forest is first with a 136 total, just three shots ahead of the Clemson senior.

Cody Proveaux also had a strong day on Saturday with rounds of 71-70 and his 141 total stands in a tie for eighth place.  Miller Capps was Clemson’s top golfer in the first round with a 69, and then was the non counter in the second round with a 74.  But, the Clemson junior is still in 13th place individually with a 143 figure.

Sophomore Austin Langdale, who has missed much of the season with an injury, had solid rounds of 72-72 on Saturday and is in 18th place in the 73-player field at 144.  Stephen Behr was Clemson’s non counter in the first round with a 75, but he came back strong in the second round with an even par 70.  He is in 22nd place heading into Sunday’s final day of play.
