Wilson surges into tie for 15th on day two at Furman Intercollegiate

GREENVILLE, S.C. - Charleston Southern senior Jacques Wilson is tied for 15th place through 35 holes at the Furman Intercollegiate. Wilson is four-under par through 17 holes of his second round, which was called early due to lightning at 6:40 p.m. Round two play will conclude Sunday morning, with final round action beginning immediately after.

CSU sits in 18th place as a team. The Bucs, Presbyterian and Samford are the only teams that were unable to complete the second round. No. 28 North Florida, at -13, has a ten-stroke lead on West Virginia atop the 21-team field. USC Aiken, Yale and Virginia Tech round out the top five.

North Florida's Phillip Knowles carded a one-under 71 to maintain the individual lead at -7 overall. James Madison's Shota Ozaki and Furman's Matt Lehman are tied for second at -5. 

Wilson, who captured his first collegiate victory earlier this month at the Bash at the Beach, is one of just 20 competitors in red numbers in the 123-player field. He rolled home four birdies in a six-hole stretch on the front nine to go out in three-under 33. Wilson added an eagle at the 559-yard par-five 11th to surge to -2 overall before giving a shot back at No. 12. The South African has notched five consecutive pars heading into the closing hole.

Elliot Gothe (T-78th) and Dylan Patscot (T-86th) posted the Bucs' other top score of the day with 78's. Gothe was one-under on the front nine but struggled on the back.

Sunday's final round is slated to start at 9:30 a.m. Wilson is CSU's only player yet to wrap up round two.
