April 21, 2001

STANFORD, Calif. - - Michael Jurgensen, Anthony Arvidson and David Williams blistered the par-71 Stanford Golf Course on Saturday and are among the top 10 individuals at the U.S. Intercollegiate.The Beavers are in sixth place with 18 holes to play Sunday morning, and are trying to wrap up a spot at the NCAA West Regional with their performance this weekend.

OSU struggled in the morning round, shooting 297, but Arvidson and Jurgensen led a charge that got OSU going in the second round. Arvidson fired a 65 in the afternoon, which places him alone in second on OSU's list of lowest rounds in school history after opening with a 76. Arvidson is tied for ninth at 1-under 141.

Jurgensen notched five birdies and an eagle in his first round, but also took seven bogies and shot even-par 71. The sophomore transfer from Denmark finished the day by breaking par with a 2-under 69 to tie for fifth at 140.

OSU tied a school record as Jurgensen, Arvidson, Todd Deacon and Dave Yarnes combined for a score of 3-under par 281 in the afternoon's second round. The Beavers are four shots out of fourth, and 14 behind third-place Arizona State, while Arizona shot out to a five-stroke lead over Oregon with a 557.

Freshman David Williams, playing as an individual whose score will not count toward OSU's team total, tied a career-low with his 68 in the second round and is tied for fifth with a 2-under 140.

For the first time this season, OSU has three golfers in the top10 at a tournament.

'Everyone was comfortable today,' OSU coach Mike Ketcham said. 'This was the first time this year I noticed that everyone seemed comfortable on the course, and that gives us a chance to be successful. The first round was a little slow for us, but everyone dug in and came back strong in the second round. If we get 1-5 playing well tomorrow, we've got a chance to do something special here at this tournament.'

Junior Todd Deacon shot some of his most consistent scores this year, as he opened with a 72 and closed with a 74 to tie for 37th at 146.

Cameron MacKenzie, a freshman, shot 152 while playing in the five spot and is tied for 67th, along with Dave Yarnes, who carded rounds of 78 and 74.

Arizona leads the U.S. Intercollegiate with an 11-under 557, while the Wildcat's Chris Nallen leads the field with a 7-under 135.
