Virginia Ahead With Outright Lead, Vilips Takes Individual Lead

Stanford's Karl Vilips stares down Hole #16 after almost eagling the 15th.

With one more round until the field is cut down to 15 teams, everyone is vying for the best positions ahead of tomorrow. The best position, of course, is spot #1, and it is currently held by Virginia, who shot 1-under today as a team.

The only other teams to go under par today are Illinois and Vanderbilt, who unsurprisingly hold the second and third spots, respectively.

Where Is Christo Lamprecht?

A big surprise today was the drop in Georgia Tech’s ranking after a strong showing yesterday. Their number one player, who also happens to be the #1 world amateur, Christo Lamprecht, had to be subbed out this morning due to his back locking up and spasming.

Fairway to Green spoke with Head Coach Bruce Heppler and Lamprecht’s substitute, Aidan Tran, after their round about the situation.

Morning Wave Leaders

Virginia's George Duangmanee putts for birdie on his first role of Round 2.
Virginia’s George Duangmanee putts for birdie on his first role of Round 2. Kelly Okun, Fairway to Green.

Virginia senior George Duangmanee shot 1-under again today to bring him to 2-under and tied for second. Yesterday’s leader, Georgia Tech’s Hiroshi Tai was able to sprinkle a few birdies onto his scorecard but had a tough string of holes on 14-16 that ultimately brought him to 5-over today, or even for the tournament.

In this wave, Gordon Sargent of Vanderbilt was one of the top-10 players who made the biggest jump, moving up 56 places on the leaderboard to T4. He shot 3-under today and was inches away from eagling par-4 Hole #5 with a links-style shot that landed on top of a hill and trickled down towards the hole.

Virginia began the day tied for first and maintained their status while Arizona dropped after shooting 10-over as a team today.

Afternoon Wave Leaders

Stanford’s Karl Vilips supercharged the start of his round by eagling his first hole, Hole #10. After birdieing Hole #13, he almost eagles again on Hole #15 and then proceeds to birdie #17. A couple bogeys showed up on his back nine, but so did another birdie, so he ended at 4-under for the day.

Adam Wallin from Ohio State was also in the conversation yesterday. After a slow start today, he managed to shoot 2-over and tie for second going into tomorrow.
