FLORENCE, S.C. – The High Point University men’s golf team shot a combined 588 (293-295) through 36 holes on Monday and currently sit in 13th after day one of the Raines Development Group Intercollegiate in Florence, S.C. Sophomore L.J. Georgetti shot a 142 in two rounds to pace the Panthers.

“I think we had some big moments of greatness today,” head coach Greg Flesher said. I am very proud of the way LJ performed. He hit some phenomenal shots, kept the ball in play and finished with a birdie on the final hole of the day. As a whole, we were a little up and down but everyone hit some good shots and we had some good runs of pars and birdies. With the way we finished I really think our best golf is ahead of us.”

In his first collegiate tournament, Georgetti sits in a tie for 10th after two rounds after carding a 73 in the first round and a career-low 69 in the second. The sophomore will enter the third and final round two-shots under par and six-shots off the lead.

Sophomore Sam Stewart sits just one-stroke back of Georgetti in a tie for 18th after turning in rounds of 70 and 73 for a 36-hole score of 143, one-under par. Senior Chase Wilson is tied for 51st with a two-round score of 149 after shooting 75-74. Sophomore Charles Valluzzo is tied for 76th with a two-round total of 154 (75-79) and freshman Tommy Dillon is in 85th with a 36-hole score of 162 (80-82).
