Stinson shoots 74, BSU tumbles at NCAA Golf

MILTON, Ga. — Liberty Christian graduate Alex Stinson shot a 38-36-74 to go to 6-over in the NCAA Men’s Golf Tournament held here Wednesday.

As a team, the Cardinals are 28th out of 30 teams at +19. That is 34 strokes behind the team leader Georgia Tech and 19 behind Texas A&M, which is sitting in the eighth position. Only the top eight teams move on to the match play round after today’s third round of stroke play.

“We know it’s a long shot to get into the top eight,” said Stinson in a telephone interview after his round. “It’s just not likely to move up the leaderboard that much in one round because the teams are too good. We just want to go out and shoot the best score we can (today). Our rival Kent State is ahead of us (by four shots) and we want to move up past them.”

Stinson was far from pleased with his round, but there were some positives.

“I had no birdies and that’s the first time that’s happened in a while,” he said. “I was fighting from the start. It was one of those days where the body wouldn’t move the way you wanted it to. I hit the ball terrible. I was really proud of the 74. It could easily have been an 80.”

Stinson’s overall +6 is second best on the team. Tony Lazzara is tearing it up. He was -1 on Wednesday to go with an even par round on Tuesday. Joe Gasser is +8, Tyler Merkel +9 and McCormick Clouser +11.

Anders Albertson shot a 67 on Wednesday to lift Georgia Tech to the top spot.

Georgia Tech had its second straight 274 to reach on the Capital City Club’s Crabapple Course. California is a stroke back, and defending champion Texas followed another stroke back.
