The Bulls are in prime position to move on to the NCAA Championships for the third time in four years.

Reunion Resort

USF men’s golf shot a 7-under 281 in the second round of the NCAA Kissimmee Regional Tuesday at Reunion Resort’s Watson Course to move to 13-under for the tournament, improving by a stroke from their first round score Monday to maintain their position inside the top-5 of the region.

Senior Priyanshu Singh saved his best round of the season for when the Bulls needed it most. The Delhi, India native shot a team-best 5-under 67 to help the Bulls keep pace with the top half of the region.

Senior, and AAC individual champion Claudio Correa followed up his 3-under 69 on Monday with an even par 72 Tuesday and is tied for 15th overall. Fellow senior Cristian DiMarco shot 2-under 70 in back-to-back days and sits 12th overall and leads the team with a 4-under for the tournament.

UF shot a 13-under 275 to move to 25-under through two days and they are followed by C., who shot an 8-under 280 today and sit at 20-under. Kent State is in third at 16-under after an 8-under day.

Top-seeded Vanderbilt, 4-seed North Carolina, and 8-seed Colorado State are in a three-way tie for fifth place at 11-under.

The Bulls will need Correa, DiMarco, and Singh to score under par tomorrow to ensure they’re not passed by the teams below them. Colorado State was 11-under today so big scores are very possible on this course.

The final round begins at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start and USF will tee off on the front nine.
