TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Davidson’s Alex Ross signed for an even-par 72 to pace the Wildcats on day two of the 2021 NCAA Men’s Golf Tallahassee Regional.

After opening with a solid round of even-par 288, Davidson carded a 297 Tuesday to fall just outside the Top-10 in the standings. However, only 12 swings separate sixth and 11th place.

Brian Garrett (71-75), who was selected all-conference last week, leads the ‘Cats on the individual leaderboard with a 36-hole total of 146.

Viraj Garewal (72-75 = 147) and Clayton Tribus (73-75 = 148) also shot 75 this afternoon, while Alex Heffner (72-77 = 149) turned in a 77.

Ranked No. 2 in the latest Golfstat National Rankings, the host Seminoles (-24) lead the 14-team field by eight shots over Liberty (-16).

Georgia Tech (-13), Georgia (-9) and Ohio State (-7) round out the Top-5, while TCU (-3), Kansas (-2) and Georgia Southern (E) sit just outside the cutline to advance to the National Championships.

Individual qualifier Michael Sakane (-11) of Jacksonville backed up his opening day 67 with a 66 today to take over the top spot by one of Georgia’s Davis Thompson (-10).

Tomorrow’s third and final round will begin at 8:30 a.m. Team pairings and tee times will be announced later this evening.
