Gilmour Leads Beavers In Stanford
April 17, 2004
STANFORD, Calif.- -
Freshman Ryan Gilmour led the OSU men's golf team Saturday by firing a 4-over 146 in the first two rounds of the U.S. Intercollegiate at the par-71 Stanford Golf Course. The Beavers are in 14th place with a two-day total of 599.
Gilmour posted a second-round even-par 71 after a 75 in the opening round.
Senior Sean Deacon is just one stroke behind Gilmour with a 147, which included a first-round 1-over 72.
'It was a struggle today,' said head coach Brian Watts.
'Our ball management wasn't good and we seemed to have no control over the ball. The conditions were good, but the rough is up high enough to make it so that if we don't hit the fairway, it's tough to find the green.'
UCLA, ranked 3rd in the latest Golfweek poll, posted an impressive 8-under 276 in the second round to take a ten stroke lead over San Diego State with one round to play. The Bruins also have three players in the top five after two rounds.
Three players are tied for the individual lead at 4-under. Stanford 'B's Kevin Blue, San Diego State's Aaron Goldberg, and UCLA's Roy Moon all sit atop the leaderboard with two-day totals of 138.
Junior Cameron MacKenzie posted a 151 and is tied for 53rd.
Junior Brad Simpson, after leading OSU in the last two tournaments, struggled on Saturday, carding a 155.
Freshman Mitch Gillis posted a 164.
'We need to find a way to get the ball in the hole tomorrow,' said Watts.
'I told the guys to keep their chins up and concentrate on putting the ball in the fairway, and hopefully good scores will come.'
The final round begins Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m. with a shotgun start.
