Vero Beach, Fla.—Following two rounds at the Quail Valley Intercollegiate, the Binghamton golf team finds themselves in 6th place at the McNeese State hosted event. Identical team scores of 293 put the Bearcats at 586 (+10) after finishing up 36 holes on Monday at the par 72 Quail Valley Golf Course.
In the first round, a pair of even par 72’s from both Bryce Edmister and Kyle Wambold paced Binghamton. Edmister tallied a birdie on his second hole of the day, the par five 7th hole, which scaled 576 yards. After bogeying both 13 and 15, he steadied himself by making six pars and a birdie. Meanwhile, Wambold recovered after going +2 through his first five holes by playing the remaining 13 at two-under par. He birdied three holes on his round (all par fours).
The second round was highlighted by the play of Josh Holling. The junior made four birdies to combat four bogeys on his second round, good for a 72 (E) during the afternoon session. Overall, Holling played the par fives at Quail Valley with precision on Monday, carding four birdies on the six par fives he encountered.
Matching Holling’s 72 in the second round was Edmister. The senior captain’s round was punctuated by his eagle on the par five 14th hole. His 36-hole total of 144 (E) gives him an eighth place standing after Monday’s play. He is nine shots behind tournament leader Charlie Macneal of Louisiana-Monroe.
One shot behind Edmister is Josh Holling who carded a 145 (+1) after two rounds. He’s tied with one other player in the 12th spot. Freshman Kyle Wambold also is in line for yet another top-20 finish this fall, he finds himself in 14th place heading into Tuesday’s final round.
Louisiana-Monroe grabbed the team lead after an impressive team score of 568 (-8). Hosts McNeese State are in second place (577), followed by Bowling Green (580) who rounds out the top-3 in the team standings.
