Flames Sit in Third Place at David Toms Intercollegiate

The Flames used a solid round of play during the morning flight to end the first day's action at the 2015 David Toms Intercollegiate in third place.

Liberty found success during its first time around the University Club Golf Course (par 72, 7,001 yards), carding an even par 288. The Flames held the clubhouse lead midway through Saturday's action, as they were three shots clear of Kansas State and Penn.

However, host LSU used its first-hand knowledge on its home course during the afternoon flight to leapfrog four teams during the second round and grab the overall lead.

The Tigers carded a 5-under par 283 during the second round and currently hold a 10-shot lead with an overall 2-over par 578 (295-283).

Kansas State is in second place with a 12-over par 588 (291-297), followed by Liberty, who is in third place with a 13-over par 589 (288-301). Iowa rounds out the top four teams in the field, as they are in fourth place with a 16-over par 592 (292-300).

LSU's charge up the leaderboard was due in part to the stellar play of Eric Ricard, who carded a 7-under par 65 during the afternoon. He leads the 75-man field with an overall 6-under par 138 (73-65).

Ricard's teammate Nathan Jeansonne is in second place with a 4-under par 140 (69-71), followed by Iowa's Carson Schaake, who is in third place with a 2-under par 142 (69-73).

Liberty's Gabe Lench is the final golfer in the field still currently under par, as the freshman is in fourth place with a 1-under par 143 (69-74).

The Flames' Payton Taylor was another player who made a move during the second round, climbing to a share of fifth place with an even par 144 (75-69). The sophomore offset two bogeys with five birdies during the second round to post his fourth career sub-70 round.

Michael DeMorat is tied for 17th place with a 6-over par 150, followed by Adam Eineving, who is tied for 24th place with a 9-over par 153 (72-81). The Flames' final golfer in the field is Isaiah Logue

The Flames will return to the University Club Golf Course tomorrow morning for a shotgun start. Liberty will be sent off the first four tees, starting at 8:30 a.m., and will be paired with golfers from LSU and Kansas State.
