North Stonington, Conn.—The Bearcats dropped five spots Monday afternoon during the second round of the America Sky Championship on a breezy day at Lake of Isles GC in Connecticut. Binghamton shot a team score of 315 (+27) and sit far out of contention from clear favorites Sacramento State who yet again were outstanding Monday scoring a team-best score of 286 (-2). The Hornets carry a 29 stroke lead over Houston Baptist heading into Tuesday’s final round action.
Sophomore Bryce Edmister tallied BU’s lowest score of the second round, registering a three-over par score of 75. A tiresome day out on the course for the lefty, Edmister accumulated seven bogeys, seven pars and four birdies on the afternoon. Thanks to a 36 (E) on the back nine, BU’s number one golfer sits in 20th place individually.
Senior Mike Surdey continued his fine play, firing a 77 (+5) and pacing the Bearcats thus far with a 36-hole total of 153 (+9). Surdey made a team-high 11 pars on the afternoon and for his efforts he now sits in 15th place for the tournament.
Sophomore Paul Andrews and junior David Cellura finished up Binghamton’s scoring Monday with scores of eight and eleven over par.
Binghamton will tee off beginning at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow morning at Lake of Isles GC. Follow the live action here
