Back nine woes hurt men's golf on second day of A-Sun Tournament

BRASELTON, Ga. – The back nine of the Chateau Elan Legends Course wreaked havoc for the Lipscomb men’s golf team in the 2016 Atlantic Sun Conference Championship on Monday in Braselton, Georgia as the Purple and Gold finished the day in fourth place.

Entering the day in second place behind Kennesaw State, the Bisons pulled to within two strokes of the lead during the late morning but a tough final nine holes saw Lipscomb drop eight strokes to finish the day with a +11, 299.  That gives the squad a two-day score of +12, 588 (289-299) heading into the final round of action on Tuesday.  Kennesaw State heads into the final 18 holes with a -2, 574 (283-291).
