Men's Golf Finishes Second Day at Puerto Rico Classic
Feb. 24, 2014
RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico – Buoyed by a strong individual performance from senior Logan Harrell, the NC State men’s golf team cut three strokes from its first-round score to shoot a 293 in the second day of competition at the 2014 Puerto Rico Classic on Monday.
Harrell led the way for the Pack during the second round of the three-round tournament, carding a 69 (-3) at the Rio Mar Country Club’s River Course. The senior recorded four birdies during his second time through the course and has now accumulated six through two rounds of play.
Currently tied for 20th place, Harrell has fired a score of 142 (-2) through two rounds of play.
“Due to the recent weather we’ve had (this winter), we’re still a bit rusty,” Harrell said. “However, the more rounds we play, the more comfortable everyone is starting to get.
“We are hoping to go out and just try and improve each day,” he added.
As a team, NC State dropped three strokes from its first-round score of 296 and is now sitting in sole possession of 13th place with a mark of 589 (+13).
No. 1 Alabama remains in first place with a 545 (-31) while No. 3 Georgia Tech is second with a 555 (-21). The Pack is currently ahead of Northwestern (593, +17) and North Carolina (596, +20) at the tournament.
Senior James Chapman also improved his score from Sunday’s first round, dropping one stroke to shoot a 73 (+1) on Monday. He is now currently tied for 41st place with a two-round mark of 147 (+3).
The Wolfpack will wrap up play at the 2014 Puerto Rico Classic on Tuesday, Feb. 25. Tee times are set to begin at 7:30 a.m.
