NAPLES, Fla. — Two weather delays hampered the second round of the Calusa Cup for the No. 8 Georgia men’s golf team and the rest of the squads in the field on Monday.
Playing Calusa Pines Golf Club’s par-72, 7,320-yard layout, the five Bulldogs managed between 10 and 13 holes around the lightning and rain delays before play was suspended due to darkness. Georgia fired a 14-over to move to 13-over and sixth for the tournament. Wake Forest and Georgia Tech sit atop the leaderboard at 7-under as their players have logged between Nos. 7 and 9.
Senior Trent Phillips was even through 10 holes for Georgia, while freshmen Maxwell Ford and Buck Brumlow were 4-over through 11 and 12 holes, respectively, and juniors Ben van Wyk and Nicolas Cassidy stood 6-over after 10 and 13 holes, respectively.
Phillips is pacing the Bulldogs in fifth at 3-under. Michael Brennan of Wake Forest and Bartley Forrester from Georgia Tech were each 6-under through seven holes. Van Wyk is 20th at 2-over, followed by Ford at 4-over, Brumlow at 10-over, and Cassidy at 13-over.
The second round of the Calusa Cup will resume on Tuesday at 8 a.m. as the Bulldogs will continue to be paired with Oklahoma and Purdue. The final round will follow with continuous play for all teams.
