NAPLES, Fla. — The University of Iowa men’s golf team sits in eighth place at the Calusa Cup following Monday’s second round of competition at scenic Calusa Pines Golf Club.

No. 2 Oklahoma heads into the final round in first place at 1-over par (577). No. 41 Georgia Tech is in second place ahead of four other top 15 teams.
