Hill Rallies From Shaky Start To Maintain Share Of Lead At The NCAA Championships

May 28, 2009
Matt Hill: Doin’ Work.

Sure, Hill’s Canadian whitebread heritage probably won’t earn him any documentary looks from Spike Lee, but Hill is grinding with the best of them these days.

After finishing in a tie for first after the first round of the NCAA Championships, Hill started the day yesterday well with three pars and a birdie on the 13th (his round began on hole #10).

But a bogey on 14 and another on the first hole put him at one-over for the day heading down the home stretch and in danger of slipping further down the leader board.

Hill rallied, though, with a birdie on the third and an eagle on the 8th to put him at two-under for the day again and shoot him right back up the board in back into a tie for first place after two rounds.

Hill currently shares the lead with Georgia’s Russell Henley and San Diego’s Alex Ching, who was leading the event prior to a rain delay that forced him into the clubhouse after 10 holes. When Ching retook the course, he quickly gave back three strokes on holes 12, 13 and 15 before birdieing his final hole to rejoin the leaders.
