SIMPSONVILLE, Ky. - The University of Louisville men's golf team sits in first place after two rounds of the Cardinal Intercollegiate Monday at the Cardinal Club in Simpsonville, Ky.

Hampus Bergman of McNesse State is the tournament's overall leader after the first two rounds of play, shooting a 7-under 137, while J.T. Poston of Western Carolina is one shot back at -6 under par 138.
Louisville is looking to win this tournament for the fourth time and is paced by four players in the top 10.
Junior Antoine Le Saux leads the way for the Cardinals, sitting in fourth place overall with his two round score of 70-70=140, while freshman Robert Geidel and sophomore Max Walz are tied for fifth overall after carding rounds of 142.
"I thought we played very today on a great day for golf at the Cardinal Club," head coach Mark Crabtree said. "The strength of the day was our top four guys were all solid contributors. They hit the ball well and we were able to maintain our lead all day. We have to come out Tuesday and be just as consistent."
