TAMPA, Fla. – Sophomore Zach Munroe shot two rounds of 70 and freshman Josh Lorenzetti fired a 3-under 69 in the second round to power the College of Charleston men’s golf team to a fifth-place finish after two rounds of the Gary Koch Invitational at Old Memorial in Tampa on Monday.

The Cougars shot an even-par round of 288 and a 2-over 290 and are within 10 shots of the top-three teams. Florida State got off to a quick start and leads the tournament at 21-under par.

Munroe is 4-under for the tournament and is in a four-way tie for fifth-place on the individual leaderboard.

With his second round 69 Lorenzetti moved up the leaderboard into 13th at 2-under for the tournament.

Junior Alex Ellis got off to a strong start with a 2-under 70 and came back with a 75 in the second round for a 1-over score for the tournament and is in 25th place.

The Cougars will tee off in the third and final round at 8:35 a.m. and will be paired with Florida and Wake Forest.

“I am proud of the guys,” CofC head coach Mark McEntire said. “It is nice to see them have some success. My goal is to get a solid round in tomorrow and continue to get momentum heading into the conference tournament.”
