Bruins Drop into a Tie for Fifth in Las Vegas

March 13, 2004

The third-ranked UCLA men's golf team fell into a tie for fifth place after 36 holes in the Southern Highlands Collegiate Championship, hosted by UNLV.

The Bruins posted a three-over par score of 291 Saturday and dropped three shots to 573, three-under par. Arizona State and Florida separated themselves from the field with impressive second round scores. The Sun Devils vaulted past the Gators after posting a 12-under par score of 276 in the second round for a two-round total of 555, 21-under par. The Gators posted a seven-under par score of 281 and are three shots back at 558, 18-under. Georgia is third at six-under 570, followed by Clemson at five-under 571. The Bruins are tied with Washington, and Arizona is one stroke behind at 574, two-under par.

Individually for the Bruins, senior Travis Johnson is tied for seventh place at six-under par 138. Johnson was six-under on the day before a double-bogey at the par 3 17th consumed two strokes to par. He finished with a 68.

The bogey bug haunted the rest of the Bruins as none of them managed to break par. Senior John Merrick fell to even par and is tied for 25th after a four-over par 76. Junior John Poucher is tied for 28th at 145 (+1) after a 73. Senior Steve Conway and freshman Peter Campbell are tied for 39th at four-over par 148. Conway posted a 76 and Campbell shot a 74.

Bill Haas of Wake Forest leads the field at nine-under 135 and Florida's Camilo Villegas is second at 138, eight-under par. Four players are tied for third at seven-under par 137, including Washington's Brock Mackenzie.

Final round action continues Sunday.
