On another hot Oklahoma day that saw it’s fare share of exciting golf, the 2011 NCAA Men’s Division I Championship concluded day two the same way it began; with Georgia Tech atop the leader board. Tech shot +2 par today as a team, dropping their lead over UCLA to only one stroke, but for the Cal Golden Bears, their opportunity to win this championship has all but disappeared.
Cal dropped a spot to 16th overall on the leader board, shooting an +11 299 as a team today to bring their total to +23. Michael Weaver shot his second consecutive -1 71 to lead the Golden Bears, though the rest of his team had another tough day. Max Homa shot a +2 par 74, Eric Mina +4 par 76, Ben An +6 78, and Stephen Hale a +8 80.
Weaver’s -2 par two-day total is good enough to put him tied for 6th overall on the individual leader board, trailing LSU’s John Peterson at -5 par overall after he dropped a sizzling -7 65 today, and Georgia Tech’s James White at -4 par overall. UC Davis freshman Matt Hansen withdrew from the second day of competition due to illness. Hansen shot a +1 par on day one, and his status for the third round tomorrow is still unknown.
Texas A&M’s John Hurley hit a hole-in-one on the 175 yard par 3 7th during his round today.
