LEBANON, Tenn. – Senior Garrett Daniel carded a three-over par 75 while freshman Nick Henderson and junior Josh Wiseman each shot 78 for Cumberland men’s golf in the second round of the 68th Annual NAIA Men’s Golf Championships on Tuesday at Las Sendas Golf Club in Mesa, Ariz.

The Phoenix did not make the cut as a team, placing 24th among 30 teams, and no individuals advanced to the final 36 holes.

Starting on the back nine on Wednesday, Daniel collected six pars and a bogey before a pair of double bogeys to make the turn at five-over. The Linden, Tenn., native added five more pars on the front nine as well as a birdie at No. 1 and an eagle on the par-5 sixth hole for a three-over 75, tied for 66th individually but only four strokes from the Top 35, which would have advanced him to the final 36 holes for the second straight year.

Henderson shot two-over on the back nine with seven pars and bogeys at Nos. 10 and 16. The Cedar Hill, Tenn., native had just two pars on the front side, recording back-to-back birdies at six and seven but also three bogeys and a pair of double bogeys to complete the round for his second straight six-over par 78, tied for 74th.

Wiseman rebounded with a 78 as well, beginning the round with a double bogey but then netting seven pars and a bogey on the remaining holes on the back side. The Mt. Juliet, Tenn., native struggled a bit more on the front nine with three bogeys, a double and a birdie at No. 7 for a two-day total of 163.

Freshman Adrian Steeger also doubled hole 10 before reeling off six straight pars, but a double and a bogey put him at five-over at the turn. The Marnau am Staffelsee, Germany, native posted six pars with two bogeys and a double on the front nine for a second-round score of 80 and a 36-hole total of 158, tied for 86th.

Sophomore Reece Gaddes collected seven pars and two bogeys on the back nine. The Mt. Juliet native found more trouble on the front side with two double bogeys and a triple bogey on the first six holes. He birdied No. 7 and ended the round with a bogey for a second-round 80 and a two-day score of 166.
