Second-Round Action Completed at NCAA Championship

CARLSBAD, Calif. – Duke men’s golf sophomore Ethan Evans fired a 3-over, 75, in the second round of the NCAA Championship. Evans rolled in 13 pars on the Omni La Costa North Course during Saturday’s round and is tied for 99th place, at 9-over, 153, overall entering Sunday’s third round.


  • Ethan Evans teed off of No. 10 in the second round and started his round with a par on the nearly 600-yard par-5 10th. A double-bogey on No. 11 was the sophomore’s only blemish on the back-nine, as he then went on to make seven straight pars before making the turn at 2-over.
  • Three more pars to start the front-nine maintained Evans’ steady round before his first birdie of the round came on the par-4 fourth hole,
  • A bogey on No. 5 moved Evans back to 2-over, but he bounced right back after chipping to within five feet for an easy birdie on the par-5 sixth.
  • Following a double-bogey on No. 7, Evans then parred his final two holes to finish off his round at 3-over, 75.


  • “It stings to play much better than yesterday and only shoot three shots better, but I just couldn’t quite get any putts to fall. I played from the fairway all day and made some really good swings but could never quite get rolling. I’m hoping tomorrow I can execute and have some fun out there.” – Evans on his play during the second round


  • Evans begins his third round off of No. 10, at 5:12 p.m., ET. He will be paired with Andi Xu (San Diego) and Kelvin Hernandez (UNCG).
  • Live scoring is available on Golfstat.
