Tankersley and Townsend Sit in Top-20
In the second day of the Ka’anapali Classic, Ole Miss men’s golf wrapped up its day with a 285 (+1) score. The Rebels now sit in 7th place with an 8-under overall score headed into Sunday’s final day of competition.
Cameron Tankersley and Hugo Townsend lead for Ole Miss with both players in the top-20. Tankersley and Townsend both are tied for 18th with a 3-under overall score.
“We got off to a great start,” said head coach Chris Malloy, “but unfortunately didn’t handle the wind very well once it kicked up mid-way through our round. Handling those conditions is imperative to success out here. I’m confident our guys will do a better job of battling out there tomorrow.”
Tankersley started out his second round on a hot streak, making four birdies on his first seven holes, three being back-to-back. Tankersley added an additional birdie to the mix to finish with a 69 (-2) round score. This marks the freshman’s fifth round of the season in the 60s.
Townsend went bogey-free for his first 10 holes of the day. He added two birdies throughout his round to go even for the day.
Patton Samuels is not far behind with a 2-over overall score and is tied for 24th. Samuels secured three birdies to finish the day with a 3-over second-round score.
Ludvig Eriksson shot his career-best round of 71 to secure an even second-round score. Eriksson went bogey-free for 12 straight holes and made three birdies. The sophomore will head into the final round 3-over overall.
Kye Meeks made three birdies and secured a bogey-free front nine to finish with a 1-over round score. Meeks is tied with Eriksson with a 3-over overall score.
Brett Schell rounded it out for Ole Miss in scoring. Schell secured a birdie on his first hole of the day and added an addition birdie on par 4, hole 13. The junior will towards the final round to improve from his 4-over overall score.
