Horns move up leaderboard after day two in Puerto Rico

The Longhorns are comfortably seated at sixth on the leaderboard after day two of the Puerto Rico Classic. This position among the field seems to fit right into Texas’ plan. The Longhorns have made a habit this season of slowly creeping up the leaderboards as an event nears its conclusion. The Longhorns have done it again, moving up five places since the first round. In every tournament they have competed in, the Longhorns have improved their position after every round. Texas, which is one-over for the tournament, trails leader Georgia Tech by 15 strokes. Heavy favorite and conference rival Oklahoma State sits at third, six strokes off the lead.

Round one on Sunday was not so kind to Texas, with freshman Toni Hakula recording the only under-par round for the Longhorns at one-under. Texas got back on track Monday with senior Bobby Hudson, junior Dylan Frittelli and sophomore Cody Gribble all shooting one-under for the day.

Hogan Award watch list addition Bobby Hudson rebounded from his forgettable first round, which saw him finish the day at eight-over and two spots from the bottom of the individual leaderboard.

After his one-over first round, Gribble had three birdies over to finish the day tied for 15th on the individual leaderboard.

Adam Wennerstrom and Hakula are both two-over for the tournament and tied for 30th on the individual leaderboard.
