LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. (Dec. 30, 2012) – One Oklahoma Christian golfer moved up the standings and another fell back on Sunday during the second round of The Patriot All-America Invitational.
OC junior Alasdair Dalgliesh, who started the day tied for 65th in the 82-man all-star collegiate field, shot a 3-over-par 73 at The Wigwam’s Gold Course in suburban Phoenix to jump into a tie for 54th at 10-over 150 through two rounds.
His OC teammate, senior Vilhelm Bogstrand, started the day tied for third – just one shot out of the lead – but struggled to a 5-over 75 on the 6,948-yard layout and ended the day tied for 23rd at 4-over 144.
Cody Proveaux of Clemson shot a 64 on Sunday and led the tournament at 5-under 135 heading into Monday’s final round.
Both Dalgliesh and Bogstrand started their rounds on No. 1 on Sunday. Dalgliesh had two bogeys on the front nine and a double bogey on No. 11, but settled down with a birdie on the par-4 No. 12. He bogeyed No. 15 but finished his round by birdieing the par-4 No. 18.
Bogstrand opened with a double bogey at No. 1 but birdied No. 2, a par-4, for the second straight day. After a run of eight straight pars, he bogeyed three of the next four holes, then recorded another double bogey, this time on No. 15. He rebounded with a birdie on the par-3 No. 16 and closed with two pars.
Players in the field primarily are collegiate golfers named to 2011 PING All-America teams for NCAA Divisions I, II and III, the NAIA or the National Junior College Athletic Association; American Junior Golf Association first-team All-Americans from 2011 who now are college freshmen; or invited members of U.S. service academy golf teams.
Bogstrand and Dalgliesh both received first-team honors for 2012 on PING’s NAIA All-America list.
Dalgliesh will tee off Monday at 9:40 a.m. Arizona time from the No. 10 tee while Bogstrand will start 20 minutes later from No. 1.
