May 31, 2007

Fourth-ranked UCLA moved into a tie for sixth place after 36 holes at the 110th NCAA Men's Golf Championship in Williamsburg, Va, hosted by Virginia Commonwealth University at the Golden Horseshoe Gold Course.

The Bruins improved three shots from their first round score, posting an even par round of 280 and had a two-round score of 563 (+3). They trailed first place Stanford (553, -7) by 10 shots. Minnesota moved into second place at six-under par 554, followed by Coastal Carolina at 558 (-2), East Tennessee State at 560 (E) and fifth place Charlotte at 562 (+2). The Bruins were tied with Georgia Tech.

Following Friday's round, the field will be cut to the top 15 teams.

Individually, sophomore Erik Flores fired a second round score of 67 (-3) to pace the Bruins. Flores played his front nine in one-over par 36 before scorching his inward nine in four-under par 31. He birdied his 11th, 13th, 15th and 17th holes and vaulted 80 spots on the leaderboard into a tie for 58th place at 143 (+3).

Junior Daniel Im posted an even par 70 and was tied for 29th at 141 (+1). Im battled back from a two-over par front nine with birdies at his 15th and 18th holes for an inward 33.

Sophomore Lucas Lee signed for a 71 (+1), but remained under par for the tournament at 139 (-1) and was tied for 14th. Three-over par at his 13th hole, Lee birdied his 14th and 15th holes.

Junior Kevin Chappell continued to struggle, although he improved one stroke from his first round score. Chappell posted a 72 (+2) on Thursday for a 36-hole score of 145 (+5) and was tied for 91st.
