UTC Men’s Golf Moves Up on SoCon Day 2

The Chattanooga Mocs were one shot behind yesterday’s pace but ended up one spot higher on the leaderboard. The group’s 292 provides a 2-day total of 583 which is fifth at the Southern Conference Championships.

Paul Conroy had the top tally with 71 followed closely by Leon Bader’s 72. Alex Cobb turned in 74 which was one better than Braedon Wear and Connor Nolan at 75 each on the Oconee Course at Reynolds Lake Oconee.

“I was really proud of Paul’s effort,” Interim Coach Miles Moseley. “The hot, humid weather got the better of him on the back nine. Leon birdied two of the last three to really give us a boost heading into tomorrow.”

Conroy is tied for third overall at 4-under 140. Wear, Cobb and Bader are bunched together with 146, 148 and 149, respectively. Nolan has 155 with 18 to play.

ETSU (554) holds an 11-shot lead over UNC Greensboro (565) in second. Western Carolina (570) is third ahead of Furman (577). The Mocs are fifth, five ahead of Wofford and Mercer’s 588 and 16 clear of Samford (599) in eighth.

Chattanooga is paired with Wofford for the final round. They start at 8 a.m., on the 10th tee led by Nolan. He’s followed by Bader (8:10), Cobb (8:20), Wear (8:30) and Conroy (8:40).
