Texas A&M Flies Up the Leaderboard at NCAA Golf Championships

Fairway to Green interviews three Texas A&M golfers.

The sun rose on Round 2 and continued to shine the entire day. Today was the California weather we were all expecting to have this week, wind and all. With gusts up to 15 mph in the afternoon, the second wave of golfers had their work cut out for them.

Like yesterday’s round, there was a lot of give and take among individuals and teams, with some schools charging up the leaderboard only to fall in the final holes.

There is one round left before the field is cut down to 15 teams for the final day of stroke play on Monday.
