Cal Men's Golf in 17th Place After Second Day of Hall of Fame Invitational
March 19, 2005
HUMBLE, TX - The University of California men's golf team moved up one spot to 17th after day two of the Hall of Fame Invitational at Redstone Golf Club in Humble, Texas. The Golden Bears shot a 293 on Saturday after posting a 313 on Friday for a combined score of 606 (+30). Cal is still led by freshman Michael Jensen, who shot an impressive 69 after a team-best 77 on Friday for a 146 - tying him for 31st place.
Besides Jensen, sophomore Brandon Beck shot a 73 on Saturday for a 152 after two rounds (79-73-152, T61st), redshirt freshman Jeff Vetterick shot a 75 for a 154 (79-75-154, T78th), and junior Fredrik Svanberg shot a 76 for a 158 (82-76-158, T97th) for the Bears. Senior captain Jeff Hood dropped out of the tournament after shooting a 78 on Friday.
Oklahoma State followed up its 4-over-par 292 on Friday with a tournament record 270 (-18) on Saturday. The Cowboys now hold the overall lead by one shot over UNLV. Tournament leader Ryan Moore - who fired a 68 to move to 6-under - led the charge for the Rebels who also shot what would have been a record low (276) if it had not been for the Cowboys' round.
Trailing Oklahoma State and UNLV was New Mexico and first-round leader TCU, who are tied for third at 2-under. Texas used a round of 6-under to move into fifth place at 4-over for the tournament. Kentucky and Purdue are tied for sixth at 7-over as Oklahoma followed up at 9-over. South Carolina-Aiken used a 6-under round that was 26 shots better than its round on Friday to pull even with Texas A&M at 14-over. Wake Forest (+15), Arizona (+16) and Houston (+20) are just outside the top 10 looking in with Arkansas (+21), Vanderbilt (+21), Penn State (+27), California (+30), Rice (+40) and Gustavus Adolphus (+57) rounding out the field.
Tyler Leon of Oklahoma State set a tournament individual record as well, shooting an 8-under 64. Leon's magnificent day was enough to move into a tie with Charlie Beljan of New Mexico for fourth place at 4-under. Two other Cowboys, Pablo Martin and Zack Robinson, are tied for second at 5-under. Following them are three golfers at 3-under - Andres Gonzales of UNLV, J.J. Killeen of TCU and first-round leader Kyle Reifers of Wake Forest.
Tournament action will conclude on Sunday with a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start.
