MADISON -- Twenty-three birdies. Three rounds in the 60s. A shot at victory.

That was the result of a second-round 277 -- the seventh-lowest team score in Marquette history -- that boosted the Golden Eagles into second place at the Badger Invitational with a 566 total, six shots behind Texas A&M (276-284).

Junior Austin Kendziorski shot career-low 66 at University Ridge GC and Matt Murlick and Matthew Bachmann added matching 69s as Marquette shot its lowest team score since a 275 at the 2015 Price's Give 'Em Invitational in El Paso, Texas. The Golden Eagles also counted a 73 from Oliver Farrell and threw out a 75 from freshman Hunter Eichhorn.

After shooting a 70 in Sunday's opening round, Murlick moved up two spots into a tie for fourth place at 5-under 139, three shots behind co-leaders Chandler Phillips of Texas A&M and Andy Spencer of Kansas. University of Wisconsin junior Jordan Hahn is alone in third, following up his opening 67 with a 71.

Spencer tied the collegiate tournament course record with a 65 in Monday’s second round. Phillips followed up his opening 66 with a 70.

The last Badgers golfer to win a collegiate tournament was Dan Woltman, who tied for first at the Boilermaker Invitational in 2009. Hahn has a chance to end the drought thanks to some clutch play after being 3-over through his first three holes Monday only to birdie eight of his next 12 holes before a bogey at No. 17 dropped him back to 1-under.

Hahn, who shot 67 in the opening round, was 3-over par through his first three holes but rebounded to birdie eight of his next 12 holes. A bogey on his second-to-last hole dropped him to 1-under for the day.

Freshman Griffin Barela shot his second-straight 71 and is tied for 13th place at 2-under 142. Playing just his second round as a Badger, Barela was steady all day with three birdies and two bogeys, lipping out a 15-foot putt on No. 7 to just miss another birdie.

Unfortunately for the Badgers, they were not able to pack two more sub-par scores with theirs. 

Sophomore Nick Robinson shot a 74 for the second-straight day and is tied for 39th place at 4-over 148. However, UW was forced to count a 77 from senior Eddie Wajda, throwing out an 81 from sophomore Pete Kuhl.

Among the five Badgers competing as individuals, freshman Sam Anderson of Stoughton leads the way at 4-over 148 after a 73. Senior Michael Abrahamson shot a 74 today and is 7-over 151 for the tournament. Freshmen Tom Calbi (76) and Robbie Morway (81) are 12- and 13-over, respectively, while junior Brett Robinson (76) rounds out the group at 17-over.

The Badger Invitational concludes Tuesday with play scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. CT.
