KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. - Posting a team score of 304 on Monday, the University of Houston golf team remained in second place following second-round play at The Invitational at Kiawah Island.

The Cougars posted a 36-hole score of 597 to stand 20 strokes behind team leader Florida on the 7,344-yard, par-72 Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. A day after enjoying a strong finish to move into their current position, Houston struggled at times Monday. The team combined for only eight birdies and one eagle in the second round and saw only one student-athlete finish at 75 or better.

"We held our position, but we were sloppy off the tee and made far too many mistakes around the greens," fourth-year head coach Jonathan Dismuke said. "We need to go out and pay more attention to detail for a better final round."

Sophomore Roman Robledo enjoyed the team's best round of the day with a 1-over-par 73. After starting his day with a bogey on the first hole, the Harlingen, Texas, native added a birdie and an eagle on the front nine and moved into a tie for 12th place at 149.

Junior Curtis Reed, who held the individual lead after the first round, slipped back into a tie for 12th after shooting a 78 Monday for a score of 149.

Sophomore Kyle Pilgrim stood at 150 after the second round to tie for 17th and was the final Cougar among the top-20 individual leaders.

Freshman Blair Hamilton (t-40th, 156) and senior Will Dusenbury (t-59th, 160) rounded out the Cougars in the field.

After Florida and Houston, host College of Charleston (600), UT Arlington (602), USF (604), UAB (605), Davidson (607), Akron (609), Stephen F. Austin (610), Texas State (615) and Georgia Southern (615) rounded out the top-11 team leaders.

Georgia Southern's Scott Wolfes shot a 5-under-par 67 in the second round and held the individual lead at 140. Florida teammates Tyler McCumber and T.J. Vogel stood in second and third place at 142 and 144, respectively.

The tournament concludes with the final round teeing at 6:30 a.m. (CDT). Fans can follow live scoring by visiting GolfStat.com or by clicking here. Fans also can receive regular Twitter updates by following @UHCougarGolf.

This will be the first of four tournaments in which the Cougars will compete as a team during the fall. From here, the team will take a two-week break from competition before playing at the Shoal Creek Invitational on Sept. 24-25 in Birmingham, Ala.
