AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Second-ranked Augusta State followed up a solid morning round of 3-under 285 by firing a sizzling 7-under 281 to open up a 10-shot lead in the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
 
The Jaguars own a 10-stroke lead over second-place Oklahoma State, while No. 1 Clemson and No. 3 Florida are tied for third place, 11 shots back of the Jaguars.
 
'We really put it together this afternoon,' ASU coach Josh Gregory said. 'We were kind of just going through the motions, and then we got on a roll. The way we figured it, we played the last 10 holes in 15 under par. Kalle Edberg played his heart out. He was sick as a dog, but he he gave us all he had. For him to contribute says something about what he's made of.'
 
Freshman James Heath, playing in just his second collegiate tournament, paced the Jaguars with rounds of 70 and 68 for a total of 6-under 138. He s alone in second place, two strokes behind individual leader Dustin Bray of North Carolina.
 
Sophomore Scott Jamieson is in fifth place at 140 after rounds of 69-71. Senior Oliver Wilson (73-72) and sophomore Emmett Turner (75-70) are each tied for 20th at 1-over 145. Edberg, also a sophomore, is tied for 51st after rounds of 73-77.
 
The Jaguars are trying for their fourth straight tournament title and their fifth win in their last six events.
