Men's Golf Tied For First After Two Rounds Of Pac-10 Championships

April 26, 2002

Corvallis, Ore. - Senior Kevin Stadler fired a 69 and a 71 on Thursday to lead the No. 9 USC men's golf team into a tie for first after two rounds of the 2002 Pac-10 men's golf championships held at Trysting Tree Golf Course.

Stadler (140) is two strokes back of leader Michael Jurgensen of Oregon State and is one of five Trojans who are currently in the top 16. Stadler is tied for third, sophomore Scott Oxandaboure and junior David Oh are tied for 10th (144) and freshmen Ben Hayes and junior Chris Botsford are tied for 16th (145). Freshman Nico Bollini is tied for 43rd (151).

As a team, the Trojans shot 716, tied with tourney host Oregon State. Stanford is third (720), follwed by Arizona (733) and Washington State (734).

Unlike most tournaments during the regular season, where five golfers from a team participate and the four best scores are used to calculate a round, the Pac-10 tournament picks the best five scores from six golfers.

Friday's round begins at 9 a.m.
