Georgia remains 2nd, Ralston 3rd at Clemson Invitational

By Georgia Sports Communications

SALEM, S.C. — The 11th-ranked Georgia men’s golf team remained in second place following the second round of the Clemson Invitational on Saturday at The Cliffs at Keowee Falls.

Playing the par-72, 7,103-yard layout on Saturday, the Bulldogs recorded a 12-under 276 to move to 27-under 579 for the tournament. Georgia Tech has the team lead at 33-under 543, while Duke is third at 23-under 553 and Clemson is fourth at 20-under 556.

“There is absolutely no substitute for preparing for the postseason than top-flight competition,” Georgia head coach Chris Haack said. “That’s exactly what we’re seeing here this week. Tech, Duke, and Clemson all are playing well, and we’re pretty satisfied with our efforts, too. This tournament is up for grabs on Sunday, and I can’t wait to see how it shakes out. The team that handles the pressure best in the final round will be holding that trophy.”

Junior Spencer Ralston paced the Bulldogs on Saturday as he fired a 6-under 66. Freshman Will Kahlstorf followed with a 4-under 68, while junior Trevor Phillips and sophomore Davis Thompson each signed for a 1-under 71. Freshman Trent Phillips had Georgia’s non-counting tally of even-par 72.

Ralston is third individually at 11-under 133, just two shy of Georgia Tech’s Luke Schniederjans. Thompson is ninth at 5-under 139, while Trevor Phillips and Kahlstorf are 12th at 4-under 140, and Trent Phillips is 16th at 3-under 141.

The Clemson Invitational will conclude on Sunday. Georgia will be paired with Georgia Tech and Duke in the final round, with tee times running in 10-minute increments between 10:40 and 11:20 a.m.
