Mocs Lead, Robb 2nd at Bridgestone Golf Collegiate

GREENSBORO, N.C. --- Chris Robb (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) shot six-under par 138 today to lead the Chattanooga Mocs men's golf team to the 36-hole lead at the Bridgestone Golf Collegiate. Chattanooga shot rounds of 289 and 282 for a five-under par total of 571.

Robb tied his career low 18 with a 66 (-6) in round two. He is in second place, two shots off the pace set by Mississippi State's Axel Boasson. Boasson is at eight under (136) after rounds of 69 and 67.

Benni Weilguni (Langenlois, Austria) and Michael Monroe (Franklin, Tenn.) were solid for the Mocs. Weilguni opened with a 72 and closed at one-under 143 with a 71 on his second 18.

Monroe was equal to the task. His first round 73 was followed with a 71 of his own. He's tied for 13th at level par one shot behind Weilguni at minus one.

Steven Fox (Hendersonville, Tenn.) is also in the top 20 at two-over par 146. He shot 72-74 to end up tied for 18th. Liam Johnston (Dumfries, Scotland) shot 152 for his 36 holes as his 73 in the first round gave the Mocs three 72's and two 73's on the opening cards.

UTC was in fourth after that first round 289 (+1). It was a solid all-around effort that was a bit disappointing considering the crew was eight under midway through the round.

It was a quick start to the second as Robb opened birdie-eagle-bogey-birdie. The Mocs followed suit and held strong for the six-under 282.

Chattanooga (571) leads Mississippi State by one at 572. Iowa State is third, three shots back at 574, while Ole Miss is fourth at 584.

Shotgun start for final round begins at 8:30 a.m. UTC is playing with Mississippi State and Iowa State starting on holes 1-3. Live scoring is available via the men's golf schedule page on GoMocs.com. Follow @GoMocsMGLF on twitter for regular updates.
