AWENDAW, S.C. – South Carolina fought through cold, wind and rain on Monday as freshman Blaine Woodruff posted a round of even-par 71 to lead the Gamecocks in round two of the Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate. The Gamecocks are in 14th place after a round of 298 (+14) to move to 595 (+27) through 36 holes of play.

The tournament was delayed by more than two hours by inclement weather, including two separate delays shortly after the Gamecocks began their second round. Temperatures hovered in the low 40s with wind and rain making things generally miserable for the competing teams.

Woodruff, however, was unshaken as he recorded four birdies and four bogeys en route to an even-par round of 71. He started out with three bogeys on his first four holes before play was halted for one weather delay. But after the storms passed, Woodruff found his game, playing his last 14 holes at 3-under par with birdies at 16, 17, 2 and 6 to get to 1-under par at one point. A bogey at the closing ninth hole left him at even-par for the day, a five-shot improvement over his opening-round effort and moving up to a tie for 39th place.

Sophomore Clint Tolleson continued to pace the Gamecocks through two rounds, carding a 75 (+4) in Monday’s second round to go along with his opening 69 (-2), moving him into a tie for 22nd place. Tolleson started strong with a birdie at No. 10 and was mostly steady throughout, recording 14 pars on the day. But a pair of double-bogeys at No. 15 and No. 4, along with a bogey at the 16th, dropped him to 4-over for the day.

Freshman Logan Harrell matched Tolleson’s effort with a 75 (+4) of his own, improving by five shots over his first-round score. Harrell caught fire toward the end of his first nine, birdying three out of four holes just before the turn to finish an opening-nine 34 (-1) that included a pair of bogeys to open the round. But the first part of his second nine was trouble with two doubles and a bogey on his first four holes, dropping him to 4-over before he recorded pars on his final five holes to close strong.

Wesley Bryan had an up-and-down round that included four birdies and six bogeys, but a quadruple-bogey at the par-5 13th led to a 6-over-par 77. And freshman Caulder Moore matched Bryan’s effort with a 77 (+6) of his own, improving by five shots from Sunday’s opening round.

Augusta State continues to lead after a round of 282 (-2) on Monday, standing a 563 (-5) through two rounds. LSU is two shots back at 3-under-par 565 with Wake Forest in third place at 568 (E). Jonathan Randolph of Ole Miss is the individual leader at 5-under through two rounds; Wake’s Lee Bedford and Augusta State’s Patrick Reed are tied for second place at 4-under.

South Carolina will begin its final round at 8:50 a.m. on the No. 10 tee, paired with North Carolina and College of Charleston. Live results are available through, and fans can receive updates from the course by following @GamecockMGolf on Twitter.
