2012 Golf Results - Round 2
Round Three Live Scoring
CORAL SPRINGS, Fla.--George Washington men's golf improved to eight-under par to remain in first place after a rain-soaked round two of the 2012 Atlantic 10 Men's Golf Championship, which was played Saturday at the par 72, 7,055-yard Heron Bay Golf Club.
GW, which entered as the sixth-seeded team, mirrored its first round score (284-284) to post a 568 and lead the field. Charlotte, the defending champion, moved into a tie for second with a 570 (286-284). Xavier, which also checked in with a 570 to equal the 49ers, improved by 10 strokes over its round one score. The Musketeers carded a 290 on Friday and jumped that to a 280 Saturday, the lowest round of the tournament so far.
Charlotte freshman Raoul Menard raced to the top of the pack with a four-under on Saturday. Menard leads the individual field with a 138 (70-68). Just on stroke back from Menard is GW's Andres Pumariega, who tallied the tournament's best round so far with a 67. Pumariega is in second with a 139 (72-67). Matt Buse of Dayton and Sebastian MacLean from Xavier are tied for third with a 140, matching each other's scores at 72-68.
Day one leaders Andrew Fiorenzano of Rhode Island and Martin Liu of GW remain in the top 10. Fiorenzano is tied for fifth at 141 (69-72) with Xavier's Chris Burger (71-70). Liu is in 10th with a 143 (69-74).
Richmond (575), Rhode Island (580) and Dayton (582) rounded out the top six teams.
Saturday's start was delayed initially by a morning thunderstorm, and then late steady rains forced a shotgun start at 11:00 am.
Sunday's final round will also be a shotgun start due to the threat of more inclement weather. Teams will begin play at 8:30 am.
