Cal Men's Golf in Eighth After First Two Rounds of Pac-10 Championship

April 24, 2006

Rancho Mirage, Calif. - The Cal men's golf team is currently eighth after the first two rounds of the 2006 Pac-10 Championship, played at the Canyons Course of the Bighorn Golf Club (par 71, 7,009 yards) in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The Golden Bears shot a two-round team score of 743 (371, 372, +33), but Oregon and Arizona were not able to complete the second round due to darkness and will finish Tuesday morning. Freshman George Gandranata was Cal's top first-day finisher, currently tied for 16th with a two-over 144 (72, 72).

UCLA, guided by sophomore Daniel Im and junior Chris Heintz, finished and started strong to lead after a 12-hour, 36-hole first day that was cut short by darkness. The Bruins, one of eight teams to complete play, followed an opening round 349 (-6) with a second-round 348 (-7) for a 697 (-13), which included a combined 10-under effort on their final three holes (7-9).

That enabled UCLA to take the lead back from Washington, which had vaulted into first early in the second round. The Huskies, led by juniors Erik Olson and Alex Prugh and senior James Lepp, barely finished before night fell. Still, the Huskies, the 2005 Pac-10 title winner, played well enough to sit firmly in second at 6-under (704).

Arizona was in third at 7-over, but still has a handful of holes to finish, as does Oregon. USC was fourth at 718 (+8) and was followed by Stanford (727, +17) and Arizona State (727, +17), Oregon State (730, +20), California (743, +33), Washington State (745, +35) and Oregon (+40).

Im finished in first with a 135 (-7) after a 67 (-4) and 68 (-3). Washington's Erik Olson, the 2005 Pac-10 individual champion, was two back at 137 (-5), tied with Arizona State's Niklas Lemkes, who opened with a 66 (-5). Heintz checked in with a 139 (-3), tied with Prugh, who had a first-round best 65 (-6).

Cal's other participants at the Pac-10's include sophomore Freddy Wolfe, who is tied for 27th with a four-over 146 (74-72); sophomore Michael Jensen, who is tied for 38th with a seven-over 149 (74-75); freshman Romain Payet, who is tied for 48th with a 10-over 152 (77-75); junior Michael Wilson, who is tied for 54th with a 12-over 154 (76-78); and freshman Larry Wong, who is tied for 57th with a 14-over 156 (75, 81).

Round 2 will be completed on Tuesday at 7:30 AM for Oregon and Arizona.
