Lovemark Tied For 3rd, USC Tied For 5th After CordeValle First Day
Nov. 6, 2006
USC freshman Jamie Lovemark fired rounds of 68 and 69 to lead the No. 7 Trojans during a darkness shortened two rounds of the 2006 CordeValleIntercollegiate at the CordeValle G.C., in San Mateo, Calif., on Monday (Nov. 6).
The Trojans were a combined -9 after almost two full rounds, tied for fifth in the 17-team field. Stanford was -22, well ahead of its next closest competitor, Lamar at -14. Arizona, at -12, was in third and the highest team to completely finish the first two rounds.
Lovemark, who entered the tournament as Golfweek.com's top rated men's collegiate golfer, posted his third and fourth sub-70 rounds of the season to finish a combined 167 (-7). He is tied for third, two shots behind first-place Zach Miller of Stanford (165, -9). Northwestern's Dan Doyle was -8 with two holes to go to complete his second round.
Lovemark's second round featured an eagle on his starting hole at 15. From there, he had three more birdies and only one bogey for his 68. His first round featured five birdies and two bogeys. He birded the par-3 16th holes both rounds.
Sophomore Tom Glissmeyer broke 70 for the first time this season with a second-round 69 (-3) to give him a 142, tied for 16th.
Senior Joshua Wooding rallied from a 5-over opening round to go 1-under the second time around, including an eagle on the par-5 15th hole.
Freshman Rory Hie and senior Jordan Nasser were both sitting at 1-under with three holes to go when play was called for the night. Hie carded a par-72 in the first round and is tied for 25th while Nasser is tied for 47th after a first-round 74.
Lovemark is angling for his second title in four fall starts and his fourth finish among the top 13.
The second round will resume at 7 a.m. on Tuesday (Nov. 7) with a shotgun start and the final round is set to begin at 8:30 a.m.
