Feb. 4, 2010
Sophomore Steve Lim used a par round to move into a tie for eighth place and lead the No. 16 USC men's golf team during the second round of the 20th annual Mauna Lani Invitational in Kohala Coast, on Thursday (Feb. 4).
USC began the day in fourth but fell back into a tie for seventh at 18-over 594 (293-301). Washington is in first (578), followed by Stanford (580) and Oregon (581).
Lim began his second round with an eagle on the par 5 seventh hole as part of the shotgun start. He remained 2-under for most of the round before two late bogeys left him even for the day. He is five off the lead.
Junior Matt Giles turned in his second straight solid outing and is tied for 17th at 2-over 146 (72-74). He got off to a rough start with a triple bogey on his first hole, but used four birdies to offset three bogeys the rest of the way to stay in the top 20.
Freshman Martin Trainer improved five strokes from the first to second round and is tied for 54th at 9-over 153 (79-74). Junior Bo DeHuff and freshman Sam Smith dropped into a tie for 68th at 11-over 155 after identical rounds of 74 and 81.
Freshman Stewart Hagestad, playing as an individual entry, is tied for 42nd at 7-over 151 (79-72). He had five birdies against five bogeys on the day.
