The Govs improved 11 shots from an opening-round 315 with a second-round 304.Korte made eagle on No. 9 to offset a quad on the par-three No. 7. That eagle brought his front nine score to one-over. He then made three birdies and two bogeys on the back nine to wrap his season’s best round.
Senior Luke Sherrod battled through a bogey-ridden round to shoot four-over par. Freshman Marco Iten went for five-over par, largely in part to four bogeys on the back nine. Freshman Trey Tarpley, meanwhile, shot seven-over par, matching two birdies with two double-bogeys.
