Columbus State golf team falls back two places


SAVANNAH, Ga. -- The struggles continued for the Columbus State men's golf team on Tuesday in the NCAA South/Southeast Regional at the Savannah Quarters Country Club.

The Cougars shot a 25-over-par 313, their worst round of the year. Their two-round total of 620 places them 18th in the field of 20 teams. They were 16th after Round 1.

CSU is 38 shots out the lead held by Nova Southeastern. More importantly, the Cougars are 30 shots behind seventh-place North Alabama. The top seven teams advance to the NCAA championships.

Jack Stumpfig shot CSU's best round with a 3-over 75. He is at 10 over 154 and tied for 64th. Bryan Lichimo shot a 78 and is tied for 48th at 152.

Robert Mize also shot a 78 for a two-day total of 154. He is in the group at 154 with Stumpfig.

Yannick Gumowski finished with a 9-over 81 for a total of 160. He is tied for 88th.

Cates Culpepper, who had to withdraw from Monday's round with an injury, shot as 12-over 84, so his score did not count toward the team total.

The final round of the regional will be played Wednesday.
