Dores Take Lead at Mossy Oak

Commodores, Gordon Sargent out front before second round suspended

WEST POINT, Miss. — Vanderbilt stayed out in front of the field through at least 32 holes Monday before play at the Mossy Oak Collegiate was suspended due to darkness during the second round.

The tournament is scheduled to resume at 8 a.m. Tuesday morning before the third rounds begins immediately following the conclusion of the second round.

Vandy stands at 16-under-par and has a four-stroke lead over host Mississippi State. Louisiana State is in third at 5-under-par.

The Commodores were led by Gordon Sargent on Monday. The freshman caught fire during his second round by going 7-under-par through 15 holes – a bogey-free second round (thus far) catapulted him into sole possession of first place at 9-under-par for the tournament.

Hunter Logan of Mississippi State is in second at 8-under-par.

William Moll battled through three bogeys during his second round and found an eagle and a birdie to sit at 3-under-par after 33 total holes Monday. Reid Davenport (-1) is tied for 13th overall, Cole Sherwood and Harrison Ott are both even-par and tied for 20th.

“Thought we did a great job competing and staying patient all day. It was a long day with the delay this morning and I’m proud of how we hung in there,” Vanderbilt head coach Scott Limbaugh said. “Having all five guys in it all day is always big.  William, Gordon, and Reid played really well this morning. Proud of the resilience William showed.”

Vanderbilt finished its first 18 on Monday afternoon at 8-under-par and was one stroke ahead of Mississippi State going into the second round. The Dores carded 19 birdies and got eagles from Moll and Ott. 

Moll and Davenport each fired a 69 and were both tied for fourth overall at that point.

Vandy will continue its second round playing alongside Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Florida State.

“We need to come out ready to play Tuesday and have some fun and compete to our standards,” Limbaugh said. “It’s about taking pride in finishing this part of our season the right way and doing the little things at a high level.”
