April 24, 2006
Senior Tyler Ley fired a 1-under 141 to lead the Trojans during a 12-hour, 36-hole first day that was cut short by darkness at the USC-hosted 2006 Pac-10 Men's Golf Championship at the Canyons Course at Bighorn G.C., in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on Monday (April 24).
USC was in fourth (718, +8) after two rounds. UCLA, one of eight teams to complete play, led at 697 (-13). Washington was second (704, -6) while Arizona was in third at 7-over, but still has a handful of holes to finish, as does Oregon. After USC was Stanford (727, +17) and Arizona State (727, +17), Oregon State (730, +20), California (743, +33), Washington State (745, +35) and Oregon (+40).
Ley was seven shots back of leader Daniel Im of UCLA (135, -7). Two players were tied at 137. Ley rebounded from an opening round 74 with a 4-under 67.
Junior Jordan Nasser was tied for 24th after a 145 (74-71) while senior Taylor Wood was tied for 33rd at 147 (71-76). Senior Bradley Shaw rounded out USC's six-player effort tied for 38th at 149 (76-73). The top five players' scores count toward each school's total.
The tournament will resume at 7:30 a.m. with Arizona and Oregon completing their second round. The third round will begin at 9:30 p.m.
