Biondi Leads Gators, Seven Back of Championship Cut

BATH, Mich. – Fred Biondi led the Florida men’s golf team in day two of the NCAA Bath Regional with a bogey-free 3-under round on Tuesday. 

Florida finished even on the day with a 284 and is tied for sixth with Kansas State at 4-under. The Gators will enter the final round tomorrow seven shots back of the top-5 cut to advance to the National Championship at Grayhawk (May 26-31). The rest of the leaderboard features Georgia (-28), Illinois (-18), Oregon (-15), Texas (-12) and Michigan State (-11). 

Over his last 36 holes, Biondi only has one bogey to his name, which came on his ninth hole in round one. He has posted par or better through 27 straight holes at Eagle Eye Golf Club.
