Senior Ashton Poole shot 6-under 64 to lead No. 47 Virginia during the second round of the NCAA Men’s Golf Regional at Stanford Tuesday. Despite Poole’s career-best single-round score, the Cavaliers could not make a move up the leaderboard and finished the day in 10th place. Following today’s final round, the top five teams from the site will advance to the NCAA Championships.

UVA improved on its first-round score by three strokes, shooting 3-over 283 on Tuesday, for a two-day total of 9-over 569. Host school Stanford, ranked No. 12, has a commanding lead on the 13-team field at 15-under 545. No. 2 Arizona State is in second place at 555 along with No. 26 North Carolina. Georgia Southern holds down fourth place at 556 and Ole Miss is currently in the coveted fifth position at 557, 12 shots better than the Cavaliers.

After makings pars on his first four holes, Poole picked up birdies on holes five, six and eight to make the turn at 3-under on the par-70 Stanford Golf Course. He collected birdies on holes 11, 15 and 16 to shoot a career-best 64. Only one other competitor in the 75-player field has matched his score during the first two days of play.

Poole opened the tournament Monday by standing at five-over par following his first 14 holes. He closed that round with three consecutive birdies and a bogey to complete the first day at 3-over 73. Poole enters Wednesday’s final round tied for ninth place at 3-under 137.
