Strong Second Round Lands Coker in Eighth after Day One

NINETY SIX, S.C. – The Coker College men's golf team shot a two round total of 599 (+23) during the first day of the Bearcat Golf Classic. After first round total of 310 (+22), the men found themselves in 15th place. But an afternoon round of 289 (+1) vaulted the Cobras up the leaderboard to eighth heading into the final 18 holes.

Leading the Navy and Yellow was freshman Will Bundy who fired rounds of 76 and 73 for total of 149 (+5). He finds himself in a tie for 19th after day one. Junior Christopher Fuga and senior Josh Clay both shot two round totals of 151 (+7). Fuga shot rounds of 76 and 75. Clay shot rounds of 85 and 66.
