KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Saint Leo men's golfer Ryan Gendron shot a five-over for his second round of the 2017 NCAA Division II Men's Golf National Championships Tuesday on the par 70 Watson Course at Reunion Resort.

A rocky start to the front nine saw Gendron slip seven spots on the individual leaderboard after carding a six-over 41 on the front. Gendron stands at eight-over 148 after 36-holes at the national championships.

Despite shooting a five-over for Tuesday's round, Gendron sank two birdies and made 10 par's.

The third and final round of stroke play at the NCAA national championship will start at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start in hopes of trying to get all golfers in before weather can delay play.

Coultas shot a one-under 69 Tuesday for a tournament total of 134 (-6). Weiland shot a three-under 67 Tuesday to climb six spots to second with a 135 (-5) 36-hole total.
