Columbia, MO—The Binghamton golf team finished 10th place out of 15 schools after two rounds of 301 and 303 at the Columbia Orthopaedic Group Mizzou Intercollegiate. A pair of underclassmen Bryce Edmister and David Cellura led the Bearcats in day one with 36-hole totals of 148 (+4) apiece. Missouri holds a decisive 20-stroke lead at The Club at Old Hawthorne, a par-72 course that recently opened in 2007.
Junior David Cellura started off his opening round on a bad note, recording a double bogey on the par-5 10th. After another bogey just two holes later, the junior recovered shooting even par (three birdies, three bogeys) over the next 15 holes. His second round started in the completely opposite direction as his first hole kicked off with an eagle at the 10th. After a double bogey at the par-3 12th, Cellura threw together five straight pars and a birdie on the 353 yard par-4 17th. His final nine-holes of the day were up-and-down, as he recorded five bogeys and three birdies to finish his round up at 73 (+1).
Joining Cellura at four-over par for the tournament is sophomore Bryce Edmister. The lefty played a solid opening round, recording three birdies and four bogeys for a 73. In the afternoon session, Edmister played solidly on the opening nine holes, playing at even par, but fell into trouble on back-to-back par fours at the third and fourth holes, registering a bogey followed by a double bogey. Edmister, who has four top-20 finishes this season, recovered nicely to finish out the day on good footing with a three-over par score of 75.
Senior Mike Surdey put forth the Bearcats’ best round of the day shooting an even par 72 in the opening round. The fifth-year senior played the front nine in excellent fashion, birdying three of the first six holes before giving one back for a 34 (-2). Surdey had a busy second round recording seven bogeys, seven pars, three birdies and a double bogey for a 78 (+6). He sits in 28th place currently.
The Bearcats begin final round action tomorrow beginning at 8 a.m.
