AWENDAW, S.C. – The South Carolina men’s golf team fired a one-under-par 283 Monday and remained in second place following the second round of the Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate at Bulls Bay Golf Club (Par 71 — 7,229 yards) in Awendaw, S.C. Redshirt freshman Patrick Cunning (Aiken, S.C.) led the Gamecocks with a career-best round of 67 and senior Eirik Johansen (Stavanger, Norway) sits in a tie for third, just four strokes off the individual leader.
