ORLANDO, Fla. (Oct. 20, 2014) — Despite three Texas Tech players situated in the top-three after two rounds at the Tavistock Collegiate Invitational, Vanderbilt University junior Carson Jacobs, with his three-shot lead over the trio of Red Raiders has given his Commodores a two-stroke advantage entering Tuesday's final round at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club in Orlando.
Jacobs carded 68 on Sunday and trailed Guillermo Pereira of Texas Tech by five shots. But a 65 from the Hendersonville, Tenn. native gave him and his team a push to the top of the leaderboard.
Pereira shot 73 on Monday to follow up his brilliant 63, and sits in a tie for second place individually with his two teammates Hannes Ronneblad and Clement Sordet.
Vanderbilt's lead will be tested on Tuesday by some of the nation's top teams lurking just four shots back. With the Commodores at 26-under par 550, No. 2-ranked Florida State sits in second at 552 while No. 7 Texas Tech is in third at 554, eleven shots ahead of top-ranked Illinois.
Vanderbilt received solid scores on Monday from Theo Humphrey (69) and Hunter Stewart (72). Stewart, a senior from Lexington, Ky., posted 65 on Sunday while Humphrey, a freshman from Greenwich, Conn., fired a second consecutive 69.
Texas Tech and the University of Central Florida are co-hosting this 54-hole event at Lake Nona in Orlando, featuring six of the top-15 teams in the United States.
