The third-ranked Cowboys entered the day tied for eighth place and 11 shots off the pace of first-round leader Alabama, but blistered the Rio Mar Country Club's River Course with the low round of the tournament. OSU's 272 total was 11 shots better than the second lowest score of the day and resulted in the Cowboys owning a 36-hole total of 563 and a one-shot lead over Georgia with one round remaining.
Sophomore Pablo Martin, who entered the day tied for the lead with Georgia's Brendon Todd after opening with a 68, gave himself some breathing room heading into tomorrow's final round after firing a 5-under 67. The Malaga, Spain native's 135 total is three shots clear of the Bulldogs' Chris Kirk, who stands alone in second place at 138.
Senior Zack Robinson moved up 46 spots into a tie for fifth place at 141 after carding a 66 on Monday. The Ft. Worth, Texas native started the day tied for 51st after opening with a 75, but birdied six of his first eight holes on Monday on his way to posting the squad's low round of the day.
Junior Tyler Leon also made a significant move as well after posting the= squad's third sub-70 round of the day with a 3-under 69 that included birdies on his final two holes. The Dallas, Texas native started the day tied for 34th, but moved into a tie for ninth with a 142 total.
Redshirt freshman Jonathan Moore also improved his position, moving from a tie for 52nd into a tie for 42nd at 147, while freshman Trent Leon rebounded from his first-round 79 with a 2-under 70 to come in tied for 51st at 149.
Tomorrow's final round at the par-72, 6,902-yard layout will begin at 6:30 a.m. (EST).
