USCB ATHLETICS

The USC Beaufort men's golf team enters the final round of the SCAD Men's Spring Invitational just nine shots off the lead. USCB posted team scores of 295 and 302 in the first two rounds Monday at the Club at Savannah Harbor on Hutchinson Island in Savannah, Ga., and is nine back of Johnson & Wales (588) and three behind Eckerd (594).

USCB's best score of the day came from the B team, as sophomore Brad Curren (74-69--143) led the way. Freshman Alan Cooke (69-75--144) had the best day for USCB's starting five, followed by juniors Chandler Vilcheck (71-78--149) and Chandler McDonald (75-76--151). Senior Brian Langley (80-73--153) bounced back with a strong second round and senior Owen Bell (80-79--159) rounded out the lineup.

The Sand Sharks were just one back after the first 18, as Cooke and Vilcheck were among only five players to card rounds under par. Cooke was atop the leaderboard after the first round, but Individual standings through 36 holes were not available because of difficulty with the scoring software.

The final round is scheduled for an 8 a.m. shotgun start Tuesday.
