Golfers Leading Pac-10/Big Ten Challenge after 36 Holes

Oct. 23, 2006

The sixth-ranked UCLA men's golf team was leading the Pac-10/Big Ten Challenge after 36 holes on Monday. Oregon was hosting the event at Pacific Dunes GC in Bandon, Ore.

The Bruins were leading by 10 strokes after the first round, but high winds blew scores skyward and they nearly lost their advantage. UCLA posted a second-round score of 310 (+26) following a morning round of 284 (E) for a two-round total of 594 (+26). In second place was Wisconsin at 596, followed by USC and Stanford at 600 (+32). Washington was fifth at 602 (+34).

Sophomore Erik Flores and junior Daniel Im were among a group of four players who were tied at 147 (+5). Flores posted rounds of 70-77 and Im carded scores of 71-76. Junior Kevin Chappell was tied for 20th at 152 (+10) following rounds of 72-80. Sophomore Lucas Lee was tied for 24th at 153 (+11) after posting rounds of 71-82. Junior Craig Leslie was tied for 33rd at 155 (+13). He carded rounds of 78-77.

The Blue Team was in fourth place at the Santa Clara Invitational with a two-round team score of 585 (+9). The Bruins trailed first place British Columbia by 12 strokes. USF was second at 580, followed by third place Loyola Marymount at 583.

UCLA freshman Jason Kang was in second place, trailing by two shots. Kang posted rounds of 70-70--140 (-4) and was two strokes behind LMU's Jason D'Amore. Other UCLA individual scores were not immediately available.
