April 26, 2014Tweet
Angels Camp, CA—Senior Bryce Edmister shot an even par 72 during the second round of the America Sky Championship on Saturday. Edmister moved up to third place on the leaderboard, while Binghamton remains in fifth place after 36 holes of play.
The Bearcats shot a second round 301 and have a 36-hole tally of 618 following Saturday’s action. Three players shot four over or better as they sit just two strokes behind fourth-place Southern Utah heading into Sunday’s final round.
Edmister has a two-day score of 147 (+3) and is tied with one other player in third-place. The talented lefty was -2 through 15 holes at Greenhorn Creek, but stumbled a bit down the home stretch. After a double bogey 16 and a bogey on 17, Edmister righted the ship with a birdie on the 485-yard par five 18th. Through two rounds, Edmister has a team-leading six birdies.
Also in the top-10 is junior Jack Sedgewick who shot 73 (+1) on Saturday. Sedgewick is alone in 10th place after a round in which he tallied 13 pars, three bogeys and a pair of birdies. His final birdie of the day came on 17 as he moved up three spots in the 35-man field.
After a disappointing opening round, junior Josh Holling had a bounce back afternoon. The Horseheads, NY native shot 76, including an even par front nine in which he tallied birdie on holes one and six.
Binghamton’s fourth score on Saturday was from freshman Kyle Wambold who carded a second round 80. Wambold is currently tied for 28th.
Northern Colorado seems to be running away with the tournament, holding a 19-stroke lead after 36 holes. They have a team tally of 584 and are led by Ben Krueger who is leading by two strokes, and three ahead of Edmister for the individual lead.
BU will be the first off the tee during the third and final round from Angels Camp, California. The Bearcats will be paired with Weber State and North Dakota on Sunday.
