MAUI, Hawaii – The 10th-ranked LSU Tigers closed out Saturday’s second round at the Ka’anapali Collegiate Classic three shots clear of the field as freshman Jacob Bergeron led with a 4-underpar  67 and sophomore Philip Barbaree and freshman Trey Winstead both added rounds of 3-under 68 on the afternoon.

The Tigers positioned themselves for their second tournament win in five events this fall with a team score of 9-under par 275 after opening the championship Friday with a 16-under 268 in the first round. Their total of 25-under par through 36 holes leads No. 12-ranked California in second place at 22-under 546 and South Carolina in third place at 21-under 547.

Kansas is also within striking distance of the team title in fourth place with a two-day total of 16-under par 552, while Houston rounds out the Top 5 in the 20-team field in fifth place at 10-under par 558.

The Tigers dot the leaderboard as Barbaree moved into a tie for fourth place overall at 7-under par for the weekend after adding a 3-under 68 on Saturday to his opening-round 4-under 67. Barbaree is the top Tiger for the tournament as Bergeron and Winstead both follow in a tie for sixth place at 6-under par 136 for the weekend.

Junior Nathan Jeansonne rounded out LSU’s counting scores with his 1-over par 72 to move into a tie for 45th place, while fellow junior Luis Gagne added a 3-over 74 in the second round to his 7-under 64 to end the day in a tie for 16th place at 4-under par overall.

Two-For-Tigers

The Tigers look to close out their fall season with a team title in Sunday’s final round as a win would be their second of the campaign after defending their home course at the University Club last month with a victory at the David Toms Intercollegiate. A win would also mark the 33rd team title in 13 seasons under head coach Chuck Winstead.

Barbaree Seeks First Title

With a 3-under 68 in Saturday’s second round, Barbaree moved to within three shots of the lead as he seeks his first individual title as an LSU Tiger. Barbaree ended the afternoon tied with California’s K.K. Limbhasut in fourth place at 7-under par for the tournament as they trail Collin Morikawa, also of the University of California, at the top of the leaderboard at 10-under par 132.

South Carolina’s Scott Stevens and Kansas’ Andy Spencer will also challenge for the individual title as they tee off in Sunday’s final round tied for second place with matching scores of 9-under par 133.

Bergeron and Winstead both follow four shots off the pace in a four-way tie for sixth at 6-under par with Wyoming’s first-round leader Drew McCullough and Boise State’s Brian Humphreys. Gagne gives the Tigers four players in the Top 20 of the leaderboard as he finished the day in a tie for 16th place after teeing off a shot back in second following his first-round 64.

Jeansonne sits tied for 45th place at 2-over par with back-to-back rounds of 1-over 72 this weekend, while sophomore Carter Toms follows in a tie for 86th place at 8-over par 150 while playing as an individual.

Sunday Shotgun Start

The Tigers are paired with California, South Carolina and Kansas in Sunday’s final round as foursomes will start play from holes Nos. 1-3 with a shotgun start scheduled for 1:30 p.m. CT.
