Clemson Tied for Second After Two Rounds at Carpet Classic

Sept. 10, 2011

CLEMSON, SC – Freshman Billy Kennerly and senior Jacob Burger both had rounds of two under par 70 to lead Clemson to a second straight round of one under par 287 in the second round of the Carpet Classic in Dalton, GA on Saturday. Clemson stands in a tie for second-place with Chattanooga and Tennessee after the second round. Auburn leads at seven under par as a team, five shots ahead of Clemson, Chattanooga and Tennessee.

Kennerly, a freshman playing in his first career tournament, had a wild round with two double bogeys, and eagle, six birdies and two bogeys on Saturday. He made his eagle on the par five 12th hole to Clemson back among the leaders. Clemson was in sixth place at one time on Saturday, but rallied with a four under par team score on the second nine.

Burger was his usual consistent player with four birdies and two bogeys. He played the last nine holes in three under par and had a lot to do with Clemson’s comeback. Burger stands at three under par 141 after 36 holes, tied for fifth place.

One of the players he is tied with is teammate McCuen Elmore, who had a 71 after an opening round of 70. Elmore had three birdies and two bogeys on Saturday, and gave Clemson three players under par for the second straight day.

Corbin Mills slumped to a 76 on Saturday as he was four over par for a three-hole stretch (8th through 10 holes) that ruined his round. He is in 22nd place entering the final round. Sophomore Thomas Bradshaw was improved on Saturday as he went from a 79 to a 76.
