CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson made significant improvement on a weather impacted Monday at the Calusa Cup at Calusa Pines Golf Club in Naples, Florida. None of the nine team completed 18 holes as a team, in fact, only three of the 45 players in the field completed their round.
Clemson has improved from eighth to fifth with a two-over- par round so far. Two of the teams Clemson has gone ahead of are #1 ranked Oklahoma and #8 Georgia, who are 11-over par and 14 over par through just 10 holes in the second round, respectively.
The nine teams will finish the second round Tuesday morning, then play the third and final round Tuesday afternoon.
As has been the case all spring, Jacob Bridgeman is leading the Tigers with a five-under-par score through 14 holes. Bridgeman had an opening round 68, then was one-under-par through 14 on Monday. His round on Monday included an eagle on the 627-yard par five 13th hole.
Bridgeman was tied for third in the individual race when play was halted and was just on shot off the lead held by Michael Brennan of Wake Forest and Bartley Forrester of Georgia Tech. Those two players are the big reason Georgia Tech and Wake Forest are tied for first in the team standings at seven under par. But, those two teams have played just 7-10 holes in the second round.
Colby Patton is one-under-par in his second round and has improved 10 places in the individual race. Kyle Cottam was the only Clemson player to finish his second round and he had a 75 thanks to birdies on the 17th and 18th holes. Kian Rose was one-over-par through 15 holes when play was halted.
