FAMU takes Div I team lead after round 2 of Minority Collegiate Golf Championship
Fayetteville State extends Div II lead

May 13, 2007

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. – Florida A&M University from Tallahassee, stormed to the top of the leaderboard in Division I at the 21st PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship after tallying a two-day total of 1-under 575. The Rattlers rallied to overtake defending champion University of Texas Pan-American in Edinburg with 18-holes remaining. The Broncs are 6-shots back with a two-day total of 6-over-par 581.

Raul Cortes of Mexico City, Mexico, began his round on the back nine and fired a 2-under-par 70 for the second consecutive day to a share the 36-hole lead in the Division I individual standings with first-round leader James Petty of Grand Blanc, Mich., at The PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

“I played a very similar round today and was able to capitalize with birdies on Nos. 6, 11, 13 and 14,” said Cortes, who started today in a tie for third place, 2-strokes off the pace. “I missed a short putt on No. 16 and also 3-putted No. 1, but had a strong finish and am pleased with my position going into the final round.”

In Division II, Fayetteville State University in N.C., fired a second round 5-under-par 283 to extend their lead to 31-storkes over Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Mo. Joel Lynn from Fayetteville, N.C., fired a tournament-low 5-under-par 67 for a share of the lead in the Division II individual standings with Derek Scott, a junior from Hope Mills, N.C., at 6-under-par 138.

“My front nine started off a bit boring as I kept hitting fairways and greens, but I could not hole any putts until No. 16,” said Lynn, a freshman for the Broncos. “On the back nine I went off a little bit, with birdies on Nos.1, 2, 4, and 7. My nerves got the best of me on my final hole of the day when I three-putted for a bogey.”

In the NAIA Division, Johnson & Wales University of North Miami, Fla., extended their lead to 26-strokes with a second round 1-under-par 287. Edward Waters College of Jacksonville, Fla., the only other team in the division, carded a six-over-par 294 today.

Brendon Ehlers, a junior from Evanston, Wyo., leads the NAIA Individual Standings with his second consecutive 3-under-par 69 to remain 2-shots ahead of Johnson & Wales’ David Tobon of Medellin, Columbia, and Shawn Scott of Melrose, Mass., who both shot a second round even-par 72.

“On the front nine I played very well, carding two birdies and an eagle on the par-5 sixth hole,” said Ehlers, who began the round in second place. “I had to grind on the back nine and carded bogeys on Nos. 16 and 18, so it left a sour taste in my mouth.”

In the Women’s Division, Bethune-Cookman College of Daytona Beach, Fla., extended its lead over the University of Texas Pan-American, winner of the Championship from 2003-2005, to 27-strokes after entering the clubhouse with a team score of 11-over-par 299.

Georgette Rolle, a senior from Texas Southern University, fired a second-round 5-over-par 77 to lead Sara Young, a sophomore from Florida State University, by 3-strokes going into the third and final round of play in the Independent Women’s Division.

“My score improved drastically today because I stayed out of the hazards and found the fairways a lot more,” said Rolle, who shot an 83 yesterday. “The key to the golf course and scoring well here is finding the fairways and staying out of trouble, which I was fortunate to do today.”

In the Independent Men’s Division, Oregon State University’s junior Vincent Johnson from Portland, Ore., grabbed the lead after recording a 72. He holds a 3-shot lead over University of Houston junior Steven Frazier of Houston, who shot a 3-over-par 75.

Over 170 contestants from 36 colleges and universities, representing 13 countries comprise the field for the 2007 PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship.

State Farm Insurance and The Golf Channel have combined to produce a one-hour Championship highlight programs, which will air on June 6 at 3:00 P.M. EDT and on June 23 at 4:00 P.M. EDT.
