Mocs in 11th Heading into Final Round of the NCAA Southwest Regional
Steven Fox carded a level par 72 in round 2.

SANTEE, Calif. --- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's golf team is in 11th-place through two rounds of the NCAA Southwest Regional at Carlton Oaks Golf Club.  Chattanooga's second round 299 pushes the Mocs' two-day total to 603, 27-over par.

UTC is 13 shots out of the top five which is the number of teams that advance to the championship field at The Honors Course June 1-6.  No. 1 Oregon leads the event at 584 (+6), two shots ahead of Cal at 586 (+10).  No. 12 UNLV is third at 588 (+12), followed by No. 13 Augusta State (589) and No. 24 Tennessee (590).

It was a familiar story.  The Mocs were able to put together three strong rounds only to have two come up a little short.

"It's frustrating," said head coach Mark Guhne.  "The guys are playing their hearts out, it just didn't come together.  Our season has been like that.  It's not any one person, just we can't play consistently well at the same time.

"We need to post a number tomorrow," added Guhne.  "The good news is we are capable, but we've dug ourselves a hole."

True freshman Steven Fox had the best round of the day for the Mocs with an even-par 72.  Fox is now tied for 13th at 147 (+3).

Sophomore Stephan Jaeger is just a shot behind Fox tied for 18th at 148 (+4).  He matched his opening round 74 and has shot a 75 or better in seven of eight NCAA postseason rounds.

Senior Derek Rende came out firing standing at two-under par early on before finishing with a one-over par 73.  He is tied for 50th for 152 (+8).

Senior Fredrik Qvicker rounded out the team scoring with an 80 (+8) moving him to 156 for the tourney.  He is followed by fellow senior J.T. Clendenin at 169.

Cal State-Northridge's Nick Delio leads individually after today's 69 (-3) gives him a 140 (-4).  Eddie Olson (UNLV) and Daniel Miernicki (Oregon) are tied for second at 141 (-3).

The Mocs hit the course at 8:20 a.m. (PDT), with Clendenin leading the way off the 10th hole.  He'll be followed by Qvicker, Rende, Jaeger and Fox.  UTC is paired with Missouri and Arizona.
