Dores Holding Strong in Cabo

Vanderbilt carded 5-under 279 in Round 2 at the 2024 Cabo Collegiate

CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico – Graduate student William Moll sits inside the top five on the player leaderboard after two rounds of play at the 2024 Cabo Collegiate after he carded 3-under 68 to end Monday’s second round in a tie for fifth.

As a team, No. 3-ranked Vanderbilt carded 5-under 279 to pull within seven strokes of first place, held by the host school Arkansas. The Commodores pace the field in par-5 scoring, as Vandy is shooting 11-under. Vanderbilt also leads the tournament with 39 birdies. The Dores head into Tuesday’s finale with a two-round score of 2-under 566.

“I am pleased with the fight our guys showed today,” said Vanderbilt men’s golf head coach Scott Limbaugh. “Everyone competed through the finish line, which is very important and certainly a standard we hold ourselves to. We haven’t had our best stuff yet this week but we found a way to shoot a good round. It’s exciting to see William put another solid score together and he looked in control of his game all day. It was great to see Matthew bounce back after a tough first round and he really gave the team a spark we had to have. John played a great round and it’s awesome to see him tie for the low round of the day and be excited about this opportunity.”

Moll moved up three spots on the player leaderboard during Round 2 after he carded 3-under 68. The Houston, Texas, native collected six birdies in the round to give him a total of 11, which is tied for the second-most collected by an individual through 36 holes of play at the Cabo Collegiate. Moll sits at 5-under 137 going into the final round, just three strokes off the lead.

John Broderick, who is the reigning SEC Freshman of the Week, posted the best round of his collegiate career on Monday, as the Wellesley, Massachusetts, native carded a career-best 6-under 65. Broderick, who is playing as an individual at the Cabo Collegiate, tied for the lowest score in Round 2, as he moved up 45 spots on the player leaderboard to end his day in a tie for 28th with a score of 2-over 144. Broderick was on fire throughout the round, as he birded seven holes. He concluded the day with back-to-back birdies on Holes 14 and 15.

Senior Cole Sherwood sits in a tie for 20th after 36 holes of play. The Austin, Texas native ended Round 2 at even-par 71 for the second-straight day, as he heads into Tuesday’s final round with a two-round score of 142.

Graduate student Matthew Riedel carded 3-under 68 in Round 2, as he slid up 34 spots on the player leaderboard during the day. Riedel heads into Round 3 tied for 32nd with teammate Gordon Sargent, as the two hold a score of 3-over 145.

Arkansas has a one-stroke lead over Arizona State going into Tuesday’s finale. The Razorbacks have carded 9-under 559 at the end of two rounds of play at Twin Dolphin Club. Stanford’s Michael Thorbjornsen sits atop the player leaderboard after 36 holes, as he takes a one-stroke lead over Arkansas’ Jacob Skov Olesen into Round 3.

“We need to come out tomorrow and be a little sharper in all parts of the game both physically and mentally,” said Limbaugh. “It’s a challenging course and you can learn so much about yourself in these moments.  As a competitor, you have to learn to always play the next shot, the next hole, and be tough enough to do it over and over.  All the little things will matter tomorrow and we need to embrace doing them at a higher level.”

The final round of the 2024 Cabo Collegiate takes place Tuesday at Twin Dolphin Club. The round will get underway with a 9:30 a.m. CT shotgun start. Fans can follow all of the action via live results at
