GREENSBORO, Ga. (April 23, 2022) – Spectators at the second round of the 2022 Southern Conference Championship were treated to a clinic by redshirt-sophomore golfer Remi Chartier (Montreal, Canada). Chartier posted a tournament-record score of 9-under-par (63), distancing himself from the field heading into the final round as the Buccaneers now lead by 11 strokes with 18 holes to play.
The Canada native lit the course up today as he posted a career-low round of 63 (-9). Chartier started the day with a birdie and it was on from there. The tournament leader pulled ahead with four consecutive birdies from holes No. 4-7 to jump to 5-under-par for the day at the turn. In similar fashion, Chartier kick started the back nine with a birdie and later posted red figures on holes No. 12, 13 and 14. With the program record looming, Chartier posted a 10th birdie of the day on the par-5 17th hole to jump 10-under-par. However, the program record would live another day as Chartier bogeyed the final hole for his only blemish on the day, concluding the second round with a 9-under-par 63. Chartier now leads the tournament with an overall score of 13-under-par.
The round one leader Ben Carberry (Bonnybridge, Scotland) posted a second-round score of even par (72) and sits in second with a tournament score of 5-under-par. Carberry birdied four of the first 10 holes, pushing Chartier on the individual leaderboard. However, the Scottish golfer suffered four bogeys in the final five holes to fall to even-par (72) for the day.
Carberry’s round was matched by Mats Ege (Kristiansand, Norway) and Algot Kleen (Fiskebackskil, Sweden). The pair of newcomers posted identical 72s in the second round to remain inside the Top-10 on the leaderboard. Ege finished the day with four birdies and four bogeys, while Kleen carded three birdies and three bogeys.
The Bucs (-22) hold an 11-stroke advantage over UNCG (-11) who is in solo second. Western Carolina (-6) trails the Spartans by five and the Bucs by 16.
The Bucs will be back in action tomorrow at 8:55 a.m. when they tee off on hole No. 1 alongside UNCG in the final round of the SoCon Championship.
