RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico – The University of Alabama men’s golf team is in a tie for 13th after two rounds of the 2017 Puerto Rico Classic. The Crimson Tide, which was forced to play for a second straight day without Davis Riley, has a 36-hole team total of 17-over par 593 (296-297).
Riley withdrew, injured, three holes into Sunday’s opening round and was unable to compete during the second round of play Monday. As a result, the Tide was forced to play with a four-man lineup, meaning each individual’s score counted toward the team total.
Steven Setterstrom carded a second consecutive round of 2-under par 70 on Monday and will enter Tuesday’s final 18 holes in a tie for third overall at 4-under 140 (70-70), four strokes behind tournament leader Bryson Nimmer of Clemson (8-under 136). Alabama’s Jonathan Hardee is in a tie for 23rd at 1-over par 145 (74-71), Josh Sedeno improved nine strokes from 81 Sunday to 2-over par 72 Monday and is in a tie for 61st at 153, and Lee Hodges is in 65th with a 155 (71-84).
Clemson, ranked No. 21, leads the field at 16-under 560, seven strokes ahead of No. 10 Georgia (567).
