“This is a great field of competitors and we are showing what we can do,” said head coach Terry Shaffer (’79). “I believe Andres has a good chance to win it all tomorrow if he plays like I know he can.”
The Colonials are joined by 21 teams from 13 different NCAA conferences on the Jack Nicklaus-designed course that will play host to the 2012 PGA Championship.
Freshman Jack Persons, who was tied with Pumariega after round one, shot a 4-over 76 on Monday and is currently tied for ninth place with a two-round total of 2-over 146. Freshman Jonathan Dresnick moved up two spots and is tied for 71st at 15-over 159 after shooting a 5-over 77 on Monday.
Senior Taylor Fuqua shot a 9-over 81 in round two and owns a 16-over 160 through two rounds to tie for 74th. Classmate Martin Liu improved six places to tie for 79th at 17-over 161 after shooting a 5-over 77 on Monday.
“Everyone really plugged away today and no one gave up,” said Coach Shaffer. “The last couple of holes got to us, but I’m happy with the effort.”
