UNCW men's golf climbs leader board at NCAA Regional tournament

STOCKTON, Calif. - Freshman Wilson Furr carded a second round score of 8-under 64 Tuesday to help the seventh-ranked Alabama men's golf team vault into a tie for first at 14-under par 562 (282-280) after 36 holes at the NCAA Stockton Regional.

Two Cowboys are tied for the individual lead.

No. 27 UNF is now third at 5-under, while No. 33 Pepperdine is second at 7-under and No. 3-ranked Oklahoma is first at 9-under.

The Seahawks fired a 2-over par 290 on Wednesday, and finished the three-day tournament at 22-over.

He was the team's top finisher at seven events, recording nine top-20s, five top-10s, three top-fives and one victory at the Border Olympics - his third career individual win. BYU was 12 shots back of Oklahoma after day one. WKU's only other NCAA appearance came as a team in 2006.

A pair of top-20s: Miller's birdie run to end the day landed him a tied for 16th finish at 3-over for the week.

"We are still in this tournament and we will put together a game plan to get back into contention".

Austen Christiansen and Levi Valdez each finished with a 4-over-par 76.

The regional will conclude with a final round of 18 holes on Wednesday before the top five schools and highest-placing individual on a non-advancing team earn their ticket to the NCAA Championships which take place May 25-30 at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla. The Longhorns finished 54 holes with a 39-under-par total of 813.

Head coach Mike McGraw has now led teams to NCAA Championships in 19 of 21 years in Division I coaching.

With two rounds still to play, expect a lot of change along the leaderboard. We held our composure pretty well this week, shot even yesterday and 1-under today, which was nothing special, but not anything bad.
