Coastal climbs into top five at Baton Rouge Regional

The Coastal Carolina men’s golf team had the fourth-best round of the day, shooting a 7-over 295 in the second round, to move into a tie for fifth at the 2013 NCAA Baton Rouge Regional, played at the par 72, 7.436-yard University Club at LSU, with a 36-hole score of 597.

The top five teams after tomorrow’s final round will advance to the NCAA Championships. In the event of a tie, a playoff will determine which teams advance.

Coastal Carolina and host LSU, with a two-day total of 597, are one stroke behind fourth-place Houston (596) and four strokes behind third place South Alabama (593). Day one leader Florida remained atop the leaderboard with a 4-over 292 today and a two-day total of 578. Alabama remained in second with a 36-hole total of 586. Currently, seven strokes separate Coastal and LSU from Tennessee in seventh-place (604).

Sebastian Soderberg moved up nine spots in the individual field into a tie for 11th. The senior carded an even-par 72 and has a two-day total of 3-over 147. Soderberg had a bogey on the par four 4th hole, but rallied with birdies on holes seven and nine to make the turn at 1-under. A birdie on the par 5 11th got Soderberg to 2-under before bogeys on holes 12 and 14 pushed him back to even par for the day.

Roberto Ballesteros rocketed up the individual leaderboard, going from a tie for 59 into a tie for 30th with an even par round, shaving eight strokes off his first round score. The junior has a 36-hole score of 8-over 152. Ballesteros was 1-under par through 10 holes before a double bogey on the par 5 11th. However, he bounced right back with a birdie on the 12th hole to get back to even. He would trade a bogey for a birdie on the 16th and 17th holes before closing his round with a par for his 72.

Peter Valasek moved up two spots, going from a tie for 20th to a tie for 18th. The sophomore improved one stroke, shooting a 2-over 74 and has a two-day score of 149. Valasek was even at the turn, carding two pars and two bogeys, before a triple bogey on the par 4 15th hole. However, he came back with a birdie for his 74.

Ben Wheeler had an adventurous round, getting just eight pars, but finishing with a 5-over 77. Wheeler had two birdies and a double bogey to make the turn at even. After a par to start the inward nine, Wheeler posted three bogeys and two doubles before righting the ship with birdies on holes 16 and 17 to post his 77. He is currently tied for 39th with his pair of 77’s and total of 154.

Andrew Dorn is tied for 46th with a 36-hole total of 155. Dorn shot 75 in round one, but posted an 80 Friday.
