PRINCEVILLE, Hawaii – The fifth-ranked Wake Forest men’s golf team continued play at its final event of the fall with Monday’s second round of the Warrior Princeville Makai Invitational on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. The Demon Deacons shot 17-under to move up to sixth place at 24-under through 36 holes.

Louisville is the second-round leader at 41-under. Missouri is in second at 36-under, followed by UCLA (29-under), San Diego State (28-under), Sam Houston State (26-under) and the Demon Deacons.

“It was a wonderful day for the Demon Deacons,” said head coach Jerry Haas. “I am so proud of the guys. Everyone hung in there and played well. I was happy to see a great bounce-back round from Paul McBride. The scores on this course have been very, very good and we need to have another round like today’s to finish the tournament.”

Wake Forest had six players shoot under par during the second round. Paul McBride, who started the tournament with a 75, tied a career-low with a 65 on Monday to finish the day at 4-under. Cameron Young and Eric Bae each shot a 4-under 68 and are at 5-under and 4-under, respectively, through two rounds. Lee Detmer is also at 5-under after a second round 70, while Marco Steyn is at 4-under after shooting 71 on Monday.

 

 

The low Demon Deacon through two rounds is Parker Gillam, who is playing as an individual. He shot a second round 70 to finish the day at 8-under par.

The tournament concludes Tuesday at the Makai Golf Club.
