The Titans shot their third consecutive round of 287 to finish at 861 for fifth in the 11-team field, the same position they occupied after Monday’s 36-hole first day.

“This is our wake-up call right here,” Eastern Florida head coach Jamie Howell said.

“We know we need to get better at everything we do.

“We still need to improve our short game. It’s pretty obvious short term. Long-term we’ve got some good stuff to work with.”
