April 12, 2010
Freshman T.J. Vogel posted a 5-under second round while junior Matt Giles carded back-to-back even rounds to help the No. 12 USC men's golf team into fourth place after two rounds of the U.S. Intercollegiate at the Stanford (Calif.) G.C. on Monday (April 12).
After completing a first round that was suspended Sunday due to rain, USC used a 4-under second round for a 36-hole, 4-over 564 (288-276), two strokes behind first-place leaders Washington and San Diego State and one behind Oregon.
Vogel is tied for seventh at 1-under 139 (74-65) while Giles is tied for 10th at even 140 (70-70). Vogel had six birdies in the second round and only one bogey while Giles offset a bogey and two doubles with five birdies in his second round.
Sophomore Steve Lim is tied for 19th at 2-over 142 (69-73) and freshman Martin Trainer is tied for 23rd at 3-over 143 (75-68). Junior Bo DeHuff is tied for 95th at 158 (78-80). Freshman Stewart Hagestad, playing as an individual, is tied for 63rd at 10-over 150 (74-76).
