Beavers 10th After Two Rounds At Pac-10s

April 25, 2005

WALLA WALLA, Wash.- - Following the first two rounds of the Pac-10 Championships Monday, the Oregon State men's golf team is 10th overall with a team total of 729 at the par-71 Walla Walla Country Club.

Sophomore Ryan Gilmour is the only Beaver currently in the top 20 after carding the team's only round under par with a 1-under 70 Monday morning. He is tied for 13th with an even-par 142.

Senior Cameron MacKenzie is two strokes behind Gilmour at 144 and tied for 21st, while senior Brad Simpson is tied for 27th at 145.

'We actually played pretty well today considering where we were off the tee,' said Coach Brian Watts. 'We had a hard time keeping the ball in the fairway.

'Since these greens are so small, it's hard to stop the ball on them from the rough.'

UCLA leads the team standings with a 3-under 707. Arizona State, the only other team under par, is second, two strokes behind the Bruins.

The Sun Devils' Pat Moore, fresh off a win at last week's U.S. Intercollegiate, fired consecutive rounds of 4-under 67 and sits atop the individual leaderboard at 8-under 134. UCLA's Kevin Chappell and Cal's Michael Jenkins are tied for second, three strokes back.

Other Beavers in action include freshman Vincent Johnson (t33, 146), freshman Jeremiah Oliver (t55, 152), and sophomore Mitch Gillis (60, 167).

'Even though we didn't finish well, the guys know what they need to do tomorrow,' said Watts.

The third round begins Tuesday morning at 8 a.m.
