Merrick Finishes Two Rounds at NCAA Golf Championships

May 30, 2002

UCLA sophomore John Merrick was one-under par through 36 holes before second-round play was suspended because of rain at the NCAA Men's Golf Championships in Columbus, OH.

Merrick, UCLA's lone qualifier, posted a par 71 first round score and carded a one-under par 70 in the second round for a two-round total of 141.

Unlike past championships, the 2002 NCAA Championships will not employ a 36-hole cut.

Merrick began the day by completing the eight remaining holes of his first round because of Wednesday's rain delay. He started at one-under par, but two bogeys and a birdie gave him a first round total of 71, even par.

In the second round, he bogeyed the par four third, but birdied the par five fourth and the par three 13th for a one-under par score of 70.

Washington's Brock Mackenzie was the early 36-hole leader at seven-under par 135 after firing a five-under par 66 in the first round and a 69 Thursday. North Carolina's Dustin Bray is one shot behind at six-under 136 after a pair of 68s.

Clemson and Georgia Tech were the preliminary team leaders after two rounds at five-under par 583. The Tigers fired a seven-under par 277 in the second round. The Yellowjackets, seven-under par after the first round, posted a two-over par 286 in the second round.
