Junior Luke Jerling leads the Lamar men's golf team after the opening two rounds of the Windon Memorial in Lake Forest, Ill. The South Africa native was one of the few bright spots for Lamar in the opening round of the tournament carding a one-over 73, and continued his consistent play with a two-over 74 in the second round to sit tied for 33rd overall.

Despite Jerling's play, the Cardinals struggled to find a consistent rhythm in the opening round of the nationally competitive tournament that consisted of six teams ranked among the nation's top 50, including two in the top 25 and one top-10 team. Lamar recorded a 13-over 301 to finish the first round 14th overall. Lamar made up a little ground in the second firing a 297 and is 13th heading into Monday's final round (598), only three strokes back of No. 47 Tulsa.

Freshman Louis Bemberg and sophomore Gregory Wiggins rebounded from tough opening rounds to card one-over par in the second round. Bemberg ended the day tied for 52nd with a 78-73--151, while Wiggins is a stroke back after carding a 79-73 - 152.

Unfortunately for Lamar, the improvement seen by Bemberg and Wiggins in the second round was offset by junior Gustav Burenstam and senior Stephane Dubois struggles on the final 18. After the two combined to shoot six over in the opening round, they both fell off the pace in the second. Burenstam finished the day tied for 58th with a 74-78 - 152. Dubois is tied for 65th after posting a 76-77 - 153.

The Cardinals step back onto the course for the final 18 holes with a shotgun start Monday at 8 a.m.
