COLLEGE GROVE, Tenn. – After opening with an 82, Jack Lang (82-75 = 157) used his short game Tuesday to shoot three-over 75 in the second round of the 2017 NCAA Golf Regional at The Grove.
The three-day / 54-hole event is being played on the Par 72, 7,333-yard layout.
After making the turn in 39 due to a three-putt at the Par 4, 12th hole and double bogey on the 16th, Lang bounced back shooting even-par 36 on his second nine.
A sophomore from Lexington, Mass., Lang's lone birdies have come on the Par 5 second each day.
Just the seventh conference champion (first A-10) in school history, Lang will conclude his first NCAA Regional appearance tomorrow beginning at 9:31 a.m. off the 10th tee.
In addition to becoming just the third player in school history to advance to the NCAA Tournament, Lang is the second Davidson golfer to play in an NCAA regional since the regional tournament format was adopted in 1989.

Lang, a recipient of three athletic scholarships: Dr. Tom Scott Golf Scholarship, Covington Golf Scholarship, and Southwood J. Morcott Golf Scholarship, has four-career Top-5 finishes in just 18 events.
No. 2 Vanderbilt (-12) leads the College Grove Regional by eight shots over No. 35 Lipscomb (-4), No. 14 Clemson (-4) and No. 47 UCF (-4), while Dawson Armstrong (-10) fired a tournament-low 65 to grab the individual lead.
The NCAA Division I Men's Golf Regional is a preliminary round of the NCAA Division I Men's Championship. Each Regional consists of a 54-hole tournament with 13 or 14 teams and 10 individual players. The low five teams and low individual not included on those five teams will advance to the NCAA Championship that runs May 26-31 at Rich Harvest Farms (Northern Illinois) in Sugar Grove, Ill.
