Oct. 30, 2006
CHARLESTON, S.C. - Duncan Stewart fired rounds of 68 and 70 to finish with a share of first place at six-under par to lead the Jacksonville men's golf team to second place entering the final round of the Charleston Southern Fall Invitational.
Stewart's six-under par total is tied for the individual lead with Western Carolina's Matt Cook. JU's Russell Knox is in a tie for third place at three-under par, just three shots back of the co-leaders.
South Carolina leads the 10-team competition at two-over par, 578. The Dolphins are just three shots back at 581, five-over par.
"We played well today and now we've got a chance to knock off a team that went to the nationals last year," said JU head coach Jim Taketa. "Duncan and Russell played well, but we got some good rounds from everyone today which is why we're in the position we are. We just need to come back out tomorrow and put together another solid round and see what happens."
Knox opened the tournament with a one-over par 73, but closed with a four-under par 68 to finish at three-under, 141.
Joshua Kinsey, playing in his first collegiate tournament of his JU career, opened with an ever-par 72 and finished with a five-over par 77 in the afternoon to tie for 22nd at five-over, 149.
Matt Kleinrock opened with an 80 but came up with a stellar one-over par 73 to finish in a tie for 31st at nine-over par, 153. Kipp Henritzy, playing in his first tournament of the season as well, carded rounds of 82 and 78 to finish in 44th with a tow-round total of 160.
The Dolphins will go looking for their third team title of the season so far in the final round on Tuesday morning. JU has won two of its three tournaments this season and has won four of its last five regular season events, dating back to last year.
Stewart is also looking to regain his winning form, having won the individual title in all of JU's tournament wins during the last six events.
