Austin, Tex.--Auburn senior Glenn Northcutt shot a second-round 74 and will go into the third day of the NCAA Southwest Regional in contention to earn a spot in the NCAA Men's Golf Championship.
Northcutt shot a 74 on Friday on the par 71, 7,412 yards long University of Texas
Golf Course and is tied with Ted Gerlich of Texas State at seven-over-par 149 for second place among the non-attached golfers trying to earn an individual berth to the national tournament. Ken Loper of the University of New Orleans
shot an even par round on Friday and is two shots ahead of Northcutt and Gerlich.
Just one non-attached golfer will receive a bid to the national tournament. Auburn's other competitor in the regional, sophomore Cole Moreland, shot a 75 on Friday and is at 153, six shots behind Loper. Auburn did not qualify for the regional as a team.
Moreland finished with six bogeys and two birdies. He avoided the five double bogeys that plagued him during his opening round 78.
Northcutt was even par for the day after 11 holes following back-to-back birdies on one and two after opening on the back nine. He closed with three bogeys, two pars and a birdie.
