MACON, Ga. – Four birdies helped South Carolina junior Patrick Cunning to a second-round 69 at The Brickyard Collegiate Championship Monday at The Brickyard at Riverside. The Gamecocks moved up two spots into fourth place heading into Tuesday’s final round, thanks to all four qualifying scores coming in at +1 or better.

Cunning opened the tournament with a 74 before carding Monday’s 69 (-1), his lowest round since the fall of 2006, to hold a share of 17th place. Tied with Cunning is senior Mark Anderson, who shot 74 (+2) on Monday after opening with a 69.

Junior Mark Silvers is in 26th position after firing a 70 (-2) on Monday. Six birdies, including two on the last four holes, offset two bogeys and a double bogey in the round.

With a birdie on 18 to come in at even par for the round, junior Allen Koon is in a tie that includes teammate George Bryan IV for 32nd place. Bryan matched his first-round 73 with the identical score Monday, thanks to three birdies.

Overall, Georgia climbed into the overnight lead by two strokes over Clemson. Georgia Tech is 10 strokes behind the leader, while the Gamecocks are 23 off the pace. Georgia also boasts the individual leader in Brian Harman, who is at 134 (-10) through two rounds.
