Jags' Floyd Tied For Lead

STATESBORO, Ga. -- Augusta State combined for a five-over 293 Saturday and is in 14th place through two rounds of the Schenkel E-Z-GO Invitational at Forest Heights Country Club, but it’s the play of freshman Taylor Floyd that has caught everyone’s attention.

Playing as an individual, Floyd – a freshman from Macon, Ga. -- backed up his three-under 69 in Friday’s first round with a one-under 71 and is tied for the lead at four-under 140. He is part of a three-way tie with Tim McKenney of Florida and North Carolina State’ s Matt Hill.

The Jaguars, who posted a 10-over 298 in Friday’s first round, were paced by sophomore Henrik Norlander’s even-par 72. The squad’s team leader in stroke average, Norlander is tied for eighth at one-under 143, just three shots off the lead.

ASU began the day in 15th place and got an even-par 72 from freshman Brendan Gillins, a two-over 74 from Olle Bengtsson and a three-over 75 from junior Jake Amos. Senior Janne Kaske had the round’s non-counting score with a five-over 77.

South Carolina and Florida are tied for the team lead at three-over 579, followed by Tennessee and North Carolina. Host Georgia Southern and Kentucky are tied for fifth, five shots off the pace.

The third and final round is slated for Sunday. Floyd will tee off at 8:00 a.m., off No. 1, while Kaske will lead the Jags out on the course from the 10th tee at 8:45 a.m.
