Troy Tied For 2nd, Hie Tied For 6th At CordeValle
Nov. 6, 2007
Sophomore Jamie Lovemark and freshman Gavin Reid both fired 2-under 70s, sophomore Rory Hie remained in the hunt for an individual title and the No. 7 USC men's golf team's moved into a tie for second after the second day of the 2007 CordeValle Collegiate on Tuesday (Nov. 6) at the CordeValle C.C. in San Martin, Calif.
In an event which counts a school's five best players out of six playing, USC combined for a 2-over 362 for a two-day 5-over 725 (363-362) and remains 10 strokes behind first-place and tournament host UCLA (715). Troy is tied for second with Stanford.
Battling a bout of strep throat that hampered his first round, Lovemark appeared to feel better on Tuesday with a 2-under performance that included birdies on the 3rd and 15th holes and pars on the rest. He is tied for 17th at 1-over 145 (75-70).
Reid moved up 20 spots into a tie for 30th thanks to his season-best effort of 70 that left him 3-over 147 (77-70). Reid was 1-over on the front 9, but 3-under on the back with birdies on the 3rd, 6th and 9th holes.
Hie is tied for sixth after a second-round 3-over 75 gave him a 1-under 143 (68-75) for the tournament. He is six shots back of first-place James Lee of UCLA.
Junior Tom Glissmeyer is tied for 17th at 1-over 145 (71-74) after a 2-over 74. Starting on the 10th hole with the rest of his teammates, Glissmeyer was 4-over on the front 9, but birdies on 3, 5 and 6 helped close out the round on a strong note.
The competition concludes Wednesday. Play begins at 8 a.m.
