NOTRE DAME, Ind. – In a strong 14-team Fighting Irish Classic field, which features two programs in the top-10, the No. 17 Notre Dame men’s golf team sits atop the leaderboard heading to Tuesday’s final round. After 36 holes on Monday, the Irish are 14-under par and seven strokes ahead of North Carolina (-7) in second place.
The Irish were once eight strokes behind the Tar Heels halfway through the opening round and were just one-under par heading into round two. That’s when the Irish caught fire, primarily behind a surging Davis Chatfield, carding a 271 (-13) in the second round. The 13-under par marked a program best in the Fighting Irish Classic.
If the Irish remain atop the leaderboard on Tuesday it would mark their fourth Fighting Irish Classic crown. In addition, it would mark their third tournament win in four tournaments this season, a feat that hasn’t been accomplished in program history (three overall would tie the 1999-00 squad for most in an academic year).
