The William and Mary men's golf team opened its advantage Monday at the Whiting Turner Towson Invitational, shooting the day's best round of 292 (+4) to widen its lead to 20 strokes heading into the tournament's third and final round.  The Tribe is at 583 (+7) overall, ahead of 23 other teams including second-place Indiana (Pa.) at 603.

Complete Results

Senior Jeremy Wells (Hopewell, Va.) continues to lead the individual standings, by three strokes now after his even-par 72 on Monday.  Through two rounds, Wells is at 140 (-4) total, a personal-best and tied for sixth all-time at W&M.  Sophomore Charlie Kern (Seattle, Wash.) had the Tribe's best round of the day at 71 (-1), his first round at or under par this season.  Kern's effort lifted him into a tie for fourth place at 147 (+3) overall, where he's tied with classmate Alex Hicks (Cape May Court House, N.J.) who shot a 75 on Monday.  Sophomore Joey Shroyer (Victoria, Minn.) is just outside of the top-10, tied for 11th overall at 149 (+5), and junior Tanner Taddeo (Hendersonville, Tenn.) rounds out the team effort in a tie for 36th at 154 (+10).  As a team, W&M added 14 birdies in the second round, and has 26 so far in the tournament.
