TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Chris Gold fired a second-consecutive even-par round of 72 as the Maryland men's golf team sits eleventh after two days of competition at the Seminole Intercollegiate. The Terrapins improved their team score by six strokes from Friday to Saturday, shooting a 302 to sit 34 strokes over par, 40 back of first-place Mississippi.
Gold's back-to-back rounds of 72 left him in a tie for 10th among individual players. Nine stokes behind him sat John Popeck, who fired a 76 on Saturday to move into a tie for 46th place.
The best improvement of the day came from Tom Hanna, who followed up a first-round 88 with a 5-over par round of 77 on Saturday. Hanna, whose round was the third-best for the Terps on Saturday, now finds himself in 64th place overall with a combined score of 165.
