FRANKLIN, TENN. – Having rounded out the second day of the Mason Rudolph Championship, Duke maintained their fourth place spot on the leaderboard after matching yesterday’s effort with a 280 (-4) to give them a 560 stroke total.
Sharing fourth place with 26th-ranked Missouri, the Blue Devils find themselves 10 strokes behind tournament-leading Alabama who sits atop a 550 (-18) stroke total after shooting 12 under par in today’s round.
Sophomore Alex Smalley continued his under par effort from the first round, shooting a team low 68 (-3) with four birdies. The Wake Forest, N.C. native is tied for eighth after two rounds.
Just one day after putting together an even par round, senior Alexander Matlari managed to shoot a 69 (-2) thanks to five birdies which ultimately helped him climb the leaderboard to T-18.
Adam Wood—who replaced Matt Oshrine as Duke’s no. 5 man due to Oshrine’s back issues—continued his season of solid performances, recording an even 71 to keep him at one under par for the tournament, and tied for 24th on the leaderboard.
Freshman Chandler Eaton, despite serving as Duke’s low man in day one, was unable to overcome two double bogeys in round two. However, the Alpharetta, Ga. native still managed to salvage a 72 (+1) to help him remain under par at 141 (-1) and tied for 24th with teammate Wood.
Rounding out the lineup for the day at no. 5 was junior Jake Shuman, who, despite recording four birdies in the first round, managed just one en route to shooting a 75 (+4) in his second round. Shuman would end the day tied for 52nd.
The Blue Devils look towards the third and final day of the tournament, set to begin at 9:00 a.m. ET.
