Golfers in Second Place at UNCG Bridgestone Collegiate

Oct. 24, 2009

Greensboro, N.C. – John-Tyler Griffin shot a pair of 68s Saturday at the UNCG Bridgestone Golf Collegiate in Greensboro, N.C., and the Yellow Jackets posted team rounds of 5-under-par 283 and 7-under-par 281 to take second place after 36 holes.

Michigan got hot during the second round Saturday, posting an 11-under-par score of 277 at the Forest Oaks Country Club to take a four-stroke lead over the Jackets into Sunday’s final round. The Wolverines stand at 16-under par 560 for the tournament, Tech at 12-under 564. Virginia is in third place at 7-under 568. No. 16 Augusta State, No. 12 Tennessee and Michigan State are tied for sixth place at 6-under 570.

Griffin, a junior from Wilson, N.C., and one of three Tech players from the Tar Heel state participating this weekend, has shot 70 or better in eight consecutive rounds dating back to the first round of the Carpet Capital Collegiate in early September. Six of those rounds have been in the 60s.

His 8-under-par total of 136 is tied for third place, one shot behind North Carolina’s Jack Fields (72-63–135) and Michigan’s Jack Schultz (66-69–135).

“We made a lot more birdies today,” said head coach Bruce Heppler. “The tournament is on the line for us tomorrow, and we want to finish our fall season on a high note. It will take all five of us posting good scores to win.”

Junior Kyle Scott shot rounds of 71-68 Saturday and is tied for eighth place at 5-under-par 139. Chesson Hadley, a senior from Raleigh, N.C., shot 71-72 and is tied for 23rd place at 1-under 143. Sophomore James White is tied for 40th place after posting a pair of 73s.

Tech tees off between 10 and 10:30 a.m. Sunday. Click here for live scoring.
