Cal Holding in 6th after 36 Holes at Western Intercollegiate

March 30, 2009

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - Four Golden Bears submitted cards of 76 (+6) Monday at Pasatiempo Golf Course to keep California in 6th place (+37) after two rounds at the Western Intercollegiate. Eric Mina remains Cal's top player in the event at +8 (T18th) with 18 holes to play.

Mina had eight pars and three birdies today, but a triple bogie 7 on the 16th hole especially hurt considering it was a birdie hole for Mina on Sunday.

The Bears' next three golfers are in a current tie for 27th overall. John Murphy and Michael Jensen both suffered two double bogeys en route to their 76s, and Stephen Hale needed four more shots to finish his second round at 77 (+7) in a tie for 27th at 150 (+10). Kent Yamane climbed 15 spots with his 76 to end day two at +16 (T63).

With all four 76s counting toward each day's total, Hale's 77 does not figure into the Bears' Monday score.

Fresno State took 22 more shots than it needed Sunday to finish its round, yet maintained its tournament lead at +19. Oregon State's Diego Velasquez is the individual leader (E) after shooting a 66 (-4), the only under-par player in the field for round two.

Today's action included a hole-in-one by Michigan State's Graham Baillargeon with a 4 iron on the par 3, 177-yard eighth hole.

Cal resumes play in the final round tomorrow with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. Live tournament scoring will be available at Golfstat.com.
