The second-ranked UCLA men's golf team was the leader in the clubhouse after the first day of competition in the 65th Western Intercollegiate at Pasatiempo Golf Course in Santa Cruz, CA.

The Bruins were two-under par when play was suspended due to darkness on Saturday evening and held a 13-stroke lead over second-place Augusta State, which was 11-over par. USC was third at 14-over, followed by Oregon at +17. Tied at 18-over were Cal and Arizona State.

Individually, freshman Patrick Cantlay was one-under par overall and was in sixth place. Cantlay was three under par through 15 holes in the second round. Junior Alex Shi Yup Kim was even par overall and tied for seventh place. Through 13 holes in the second round, he was two-over par. Tied for ninth place at one-over par overall was junior Gregor Main. He was one-under par in the second round through 15 holes. Also tied for ninth was sophomore Pontus Widegren, who was six-over par through 14 holes in round two. Sophomore Pedro Figueiredo was tied for 15th place overall at two-over par. He was two-over through 14 holes in the second round. Finally, sophomore Mario Clemens was tied for 47th place at seven-over par on the day. He was one-over par in round two through 13 holes.

The Bruins led the field in the first round, building a seven-shot lead on the strength of Widegren's five-under par 65 that included an eagle two on the par 4 second hole (his 13th). After round one, Widegren was tied for first place with Cal's Jeff Hamm.
