Men’s golf in 13th at the Seminole Intercollegiate
A pair of Jacksonville natives led the JU men’s golf team to a five-shot improvement in the second round as the Dolphins are in 13th after 36 holes at the Seminole Intercollegiate on the par-71 Southwood Golf Course.
Jamey Salmon and Trey Douglas each carded a two-over par 73 to lead the Dolphins to a 12-over par, 296, in the second round.
No. 18 Arkansas leads the 18-team event by three shots over host Florida State. Troy’s Zach Portemont leads the individual competition at four-under par, 138, by one shot over Arkansas’ Sebastian Cappelen.
“Today was perfect for scoring and we didn’t take advantage,” said JU head coach Mike Blackburn. “We’re going to come out tomorrow and look to improve on our score again.”
Salmon had a solid round with one birdie and just three bogeys to get his 73. Douglas had two birdies and four bogeys en route to his score. Salmon is tied for 56th at nine-over par and Douglas in tied for 71st at 11-over par.
