Cats Tied for Sixth after First Day of Charleston Shootout
CHARLESTON, S.C. - The Bethune-Cookman Men's Golf team sits tied for sixth place alongside Fairleigh Dickinson after the opening day of the Charleston Shootout at The Links at Stono Ferry. Play was suspended midway through the second round of Monday's originally scheduled 54-holes due to darkness.
Freshman Leon Fricker leads the pack for Bethune-Cookman after firing an even-par, 72 in the opening round. For the tournament, the Ivybridge, England native is tied for sixth place at one-under.
In his opening round, Fricker shot three birdies on the back nine which included holes 10, 14 and 18. In the second round, he recorded birdies on holes 10, 13, 15 and 18, but collected a bogey on the first hole during his back nine stretch. He will resume play on Tuesday with the fourth tee, still needing to play six holes to conclude the round.
Also playing well on Monday for the Wildcats was Emmanuel Petrich. Petrich, a junior from Grand Blanc, Mich., is tied for 19th in the field after firing a three-over, 75 during first round play. He followed that with an even round through the first 12 holes of his second round. He'll conclude his final six holes on Tuesday morning beginning on the seventh tee.
Participating as an individual, senior Alex Clapp fired an 81 in his opening round, and is three-over during his second round after 12 holes complete.
Second round action for the Charleston Shootout continues Tuesday at 8 a.m., followed by the third and final round.
