LU golfers sixth at SLC championships

McKINNEY — McKINNEY  — The Lamar men’s golf team fired a 304 Tuesday afternoon on

the par 72 Stonebridge Ranch Country Club course in McKinney that was

four strokes over their opening-round score. Despite shooting 16-over par on the

day, Lamar was able to maintain its hold on sixth place in the standings

(300-304 – 604).

    The Cardinals enter the final round of action within 12 strokes of the next four

teams ahead of them.

    “I’m proud of how Stephane (Dubois) is playing right now,” said head coach

Brian White. “He is competing the way you want your seniors to compete at an

event of this magnitude.

    “This is not the second round we had envisioned. Quite frankly, we didn’t do

what we needed to make up ground on the teams in front of us. It’s times like

these where you can see what you’re really made of. I expect our guys to come

out here tomorrow with a little bit of fight,” added White.

    Dubois continues to lead the Cardinals after adding a 73 to his opening 72. He is

sixth overall with a two-round 145 (+1). Dubois is still in the hunt for the

overall title, but he has his work cut out for him with only 18 holes remaining.

Central Arkansas’ Pep Angles is atop the individual leaderboard with an

eight-under 136.

    Freshman Zander Gous has posted Lamar’s second-lowest score through two

rounds, but is six strokes off Dubois’ pace. Gous is tied for 20th with a

two-round 77-74 – 151. He posted his two-over just 24 hours after recording

the team’s highest score in the opening round.

    Sophomore Gregory Wiggins fell off his first-round pace, but managed to finish

the day within the overall top 25. Wiggins enters Wednesday’s final round of

action tied for 24th (75-78 – 153).

    Junior Gustaf Burenstam ended the day tied

for 29th overall two strokes back of Wiggins. Burenstam enters the final 18

holes with a 76-79 – 155. Freshman Louis Bemberg rounded out Lamar’s day with a 77-81 – 158. Bemberg

is currently tied for 39th overall.
