PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. --- Day two of the PGA WORKS Intercollegiate Championship produced heavy winds and a delay in the action. After sitting through a lengthy stoppage of play, the Tigers returned to the course trying to complete the second round. Rosario Falzone was the lone Tiger to not complete his round and retunred on Sunday morning to play his final holes.

Falzone carded pars on Sunday morning to finish the second round with an Even, 72, and remained at 3-under for the tournament. The score kept the senior in first place of the individual title, while the Tigers remain in third. The Big Blue finished with an 8-over, 296, and are seven strokes behind team leader, Bethune-Cookman.

Scotty Hudson bunced back on day two, to fire an Even, 72, matching Falzone for the round. Hudson recorded four birdies, including two over the final three holes. Junior Tyler Woods highlighted his round with an Eagle on the par-4, 10th, to help post a 3-over, 75.

Drew Owens secured the final scoring round for TSU with a 5-over, 77, edging out Sam Gatlin who registered an 80 for the second consecutive day.
