DULUTH, Ga. – Kansas senior Daniel Sutton and juniors Charlie Hillier and Jake Scarrow each matched the Berkeley Hills Country Club course to finish at even par during the second round of the Autotrader Collegiate Classic Monday. That effort allowed the Jayhawks to shave five strokes off their previous round total and move up two spots, as KU will enter the final day tied for sixth overall.
“It was a little windy, but I guess it’s the same for everyone,” said head coach Jamie Bermel. “We struggled on the greens and some of that is due to the Bermuda greens, but we made several careless three-putts and even a four-putt.  Good teams don’t do that and we need to correct that before we play Tuesday.”
Hillier was the model of consistency for the Jayhawks on the day. He totaled 27 pars over the 36 holes, the third-highest par total in the event. The KU junior started the day strong with three birdies in his first five holes.  However, back-to-back double bogeys on holes No. 7 and No. 8 slowed him down. He played par the rest of the way and finished the first 18 at 1-over.  In the second round, Hillier was 1-under heading into his final hole, No. 1, but his second bogey of the round left the Te Puke, New Zealand native at an even 72.  At 1-over, Hillier enters the final round tied for 13th.
“Charlie played fairly solid (Monday),” Bermel said. “He got off to a good start and kind of hung in there most of the day. We will need everyone playing well Tuesday and see if we can’t move up the leaderboard and finish strong.”
Sutton was also consistent on the day.  In all, four birdies and six bogeys summarized his two rounds, which resulted in a 2-over 146. Sutton posted 26 pars over the two rounds and stands in a tied for 18th.
Scarrow totaled the most birdies for the Jayhawks over the two rounds.  With seven birdies, including five in the second round, Scarrow was hampered with bigger numbers including a pair of double bogeys in the first round.  With a 3-over 147, Scarrow is tied for 22nd overall.
Freshman Ben Sigel, playing as an individual, is knotted with Scarrow after firing a 3-over, 147. Sigel finished with five birdies on the day, after shooting 2-over in the first round and 1-over for the second.
Both senior Daniel Hudson and sophomore Andy Spencer endured challenging days.  Hudson finished both rounds at 9-over, while Spencer was 10-over.  Hudson is tied for 64th and Spencer is knotted at 75th.
After two rounds, only Georgia Southern (-18) was only able to post under-par scores in the 16-team field and leads by 23 strokes heading into the final day of play. The Jayhawks are only seven strokes away from third-place Notre Dame and a shot at another top-three finish. 
Sigel will start the field off with a 7:05 a.m. CT tee time from hole No. 1.  Live scoring is available at Golfstat.com
