Chartier leads Bucs on Saturday

WEST POINT, Miss. (March 27, 2021) – Led by red-shirt freshman Remi Chartier (Montreal, Canada), the ETSU men’s golf team concluded second round play at the Old Waverly Collegiate on Saturday from the Old Waverly Golf Club.

Chartier carded a 1-under 71 on Saturday, moving him four spots up the leaderboard into a tie for 44th at 1-over-par 145. The Buccaneer freshman was nearly flawless in round two as he recorded two birdies, 15 pars and one bogey.

After firing a 4-under in Friday’s opener, senior Shiso Go (Kanagawa, Japan) posted a 3-over 75 to dip into a tie for 30th at 1-under-par 143. Go, who was two-over thru his first seven holes, battled to get back to even thanks to consecutive birdies on No. 8 and No. 9; however, he played the back nine at three-over to post the 75. Teammate Archie Davies (Carlisle, England) shot an even-par on Saturday and is also tied for 30th.

As a team, ETSU shot an even-par 288 in round two and moved four spots down the leaderboard into ninth-place at 2-under-par 574. The Bucs sit ahead of No. 24 Alabama (+1) and No. 20 Texas Tech (+2).

Ninth-ranked Texas A&M jumped into the lead at 17-under-par 274, thanks to firing a 14-under 274 on Saturday. The Aggies lead No. 13 Georgia by one shot and No. 22 Arkansas – who went low with a 19-under 269 – by three strokes.

Individually, Texas A&M’s Sam Bennett is the 36-hole leader at 9-under-par 135. Bennett, the 30th-ranked player via Golfstat, registered a 6-under 66 on Saturday to grab a two-shot lead over Tennessee’s Spencer Cross and a three-stroke lead over a group of five golfers who are tied for third at 6-under-par 138. In that group was Ole Miss’ Jackson Suber – who fired a 9-under 63 in round two.

Sunday’s final round is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Eastern, with ETSU being grouped with Mississippi State and Ole Miss.
