Charlotte golf improved by four strokes in round two, but remains in third place out of 15 squads competing in the Bayou City Collegiate Championship at the Redstone Golf Club in Humble, Tex. Saturday. The 49ers gained one stroke on second-place Baylor, sitting two shots back from moving up the leaderboard.
"Another solid day for us," said 49ers head coach Ryan Cabbage. "We hit a bit of a hiccup in the middle of the round, but we bounced back nicely."
Junior Franco Castro (Alpharetta, Ga. / LSU) remains Charlotte's low scorer through two rounds of the tournament. He finished at even par today and remains at three-under overall. He is tied for ninth in the tournament.
After 18 pars yesterday, senior Braeden Cryderman (Huntsville, Ontario / Queens University of Charlotte) posted four birdies and only one hole through the first 36 over par. He is even par overall.
Charlotte's best round of the day came from freshman Dan Hendry (Dubai, Unites Arab Emirates / Dubai College), who posted a two-under 70, thanks to four birdies in the middle of his round. He is even par overall, along with Cryderman.
"The round that Dan had was super solid all day," added Cabbage. "Overall, I was very pleased with the way the whole team played. Everyone did some nice things and we are looking forward to playing well tomorrow."
All five 49ers golfers posted rounds of par or better, including a one-under 71 by junior Joe Toland (White River Junction, Vt. / Hartford HS) Saturday.
The Niners will again play with second-place Baylor and tournament leader Texas in Sunday's final round. The final round will be a shotgun start, with the Niners, Bears and Longhorns starting on the first three holes.
