UNCG’s Hudson & Lamb Tied for 11th After Round Two of SoCon Championship
GREENSBORO, Ga. – The UNC Greensboro (UNCG) men’s golf teammates of Tommy Lamb and Nick Lyerly each led the Spartans in the second round of the Southern Conference (SoCon) Men’s Golf Championship with even-par (72) scorecards as UNCG finished the round in sixth place at Reynolds Plantation’s Oconee Course.
Lamb joined Connor Brown and Randall Hudson in the birdie column on the Spartans’ opening hole at the par five, 580-yard tenth hole. The junior carded a birdie on the back nine’s other par five hole, the 560-yard 17th that led Lamb to post a one-under-par (35) score on the back nine. Lamb finished his round with his third birdie of the second round, taking place on the par four, 435-yard ninth hole. At one-under-par (143) for the tournament, Lamb sits in a tie for 11th place. The junior stands one shot from entry into the top-ten leaderboard and three shots off a top-five finish.
Lyerly carded three birdies on the day, two coming on par five holes. The graduate student also birdied the 17th hole but did most of his damage on the front nine to finish his round. Lyerly birdied the par five, 558-yard first hole after the turn. With a birdie on the 382-yard fourth hole, Lyerly finished the front nine unblemished at two-under-par. Through 36 holes, Lyerly is four-over-par (148).
Hudson joined Lamb in a tie for 11th place through 36 holes after a second round one-over-par effort. The junior posted two birdies on the tenth and 17th holes as part of his one-under-par (35) back nine to open the round.
UNCG moved up one spot into sixth place at seven-over-par (583) after a three-over-par (291) second round finish. The Spartans stand seven shots before Mercer and Western Carolina tied for fourth place and hold a three-shot cushion over Wofford in seventh place.
