EL PASO, Texas – South Florida sophomore Claudio Correa heads into the final round of the 2015 Sun Bowl Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic after carding a 6-under-par 136 on the par 71, 6,889 yard El Paso Country Club Course, Saturday, Nov. 7.
Correa was tied for third after posting a 68 in round one and maintained his composure as the wind picked up in the afternoon carding another 68 in round two. Correa holed 24 pars and posted nine birdies to gain a two-stroke lead over East Tennessee State’s senior Adrian Meronk, who heads into the final round with a 4-under-par 138. Meronk, who was one of three player to card an eagle on the day (hole No. 9), also tallied a 68 in round two.
UNLV’s sophomore John Oda was in the lead after one round of play as he tallied a 64 but missed a few key shots in round two and finished with a 78 to drop on the leaderboard to tie for eighth with Brandon Matthews of Temple and Robin Sciot-Siegrist of Louisville. All three players go into the last day of play with an even par.
