After a first day finish of third place, the Oregon men's golf team shot a 305 (308-305--613) on Friday to move within one stroke of first place in the Taylor Made/Waikoloa Invitational held on the King Beaches of Hawaii. The top-four teams are within five strokes of Texas, who maintained their lead over the 24 participating teams by shooting a two day total of 612. Texas' Matt Dobyns took the early lead on Thursday, but it was his teammate, Matt Brost, who shot a low round of 72 to move into a tie for first place with BYU's Scott Miller, each scoring a two day total of 147.

Rounding out the top-five schools behind Texas (302-310--612) was Oregon (308-305--613), TCU (307-308--615), Arizona State (313-304--617), and Southern California (320-307--627). The difference between among the top-10 players was a matter of only six strokes. Nevada's Sprague Kolp shot a 76-72--148 to move into third place, while ASU's Matt Jones came in fourth (74-75--149), UCLA's Parker McLauhlin in fifth (75-75--150), TCU's Scott Volpitto in sixth (74-77-151), Oregon's Chris Carnahan (76-76--152), Arkansas' Craig Lile (76-76--152), Texas A&M's Lindholm (82-70--152) in a tie for seventh, and Oregon's John Ellis in a tie for 10th (81-76--153).

Beyond the Ducks's two top-10 finishers, Carnahan and Ellis, teammate Brandon Harnden finished in a tie for 18th (76-69--155) while Matt Genovese shot a his lowest round this tournament to move into a tie for 20th place. Also finishing strong for the Ducks was Aaron Byers, who despite finishing in a tie for 26th place (81-76--157), is only five strokes behind Carnahan.

'They are playing really well,' said men's head golf coach Steve Nosler. 'The kids are out there battling and will have to play extremely well to win it, but that's what came over here for. I am pleased with how this team is playing. Since fall season, I have expected them to show that kind of depth, strength and balance.'

Oregon will continue with its third and final round on Saturday morning with a 6:30 a.m. shot-gun start.
