WINDERMERE, Fla. - The No. 3 Husky men's golf team shot seven strokes better as a team in the second round of the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational, but still find themselves 14th out of 15 schools. Washington collectively shot a 13-over-par 301 on Monday and are 33-shots over par total.

'One thing that is really tough is that this is such a foreign place for us,' explained Husky head coach Matt Thurmond from Orlando, where it was humid and around 90 degrees. 'It's like going and playing a tough road game in someone else's stadium. Playing on this Bermuda grass around the greens is tough and most of the shots were losing are chips around the green - stuff that back home we're great at.'

Nick Taylor had the best day of all the Huskies, carding a 1-over-par 73. He nearly made it into the clubhouse even, but bogeyed his 17th hole of the day to end to end his round in a tie for 27th.

Tze Huang Choo is even with Taylor after shooting a second-consecutive 3-over 75. His second round score was in danger of getting out of hand, but he birdied four of the final five holes to salvage a +3 for the day.

Richard Lee is tied for 39th at 9-over 153 overall. He shot a 4-over 76 on Monday.

Jens Bracht shot a 5-over 77 and is tied for 53rd at +12 overall, while Chris Killmer is tied for 70th at 18-over.

Top-ranked Oklahoma State leads all teams at +4, 580, while Alabama's Bud Cauley leads the individual race at 5-under 139 overall.

Wednesday's final round will serve as Washington's last chance to regroup this fall. They will be off until they renew play in Hawai'i in February.

Husky Individual Results:
T27. Tze Huang Choo, +6 (75-75-150)
T27. Nick Taylor, +5 (77-73-150)
T39. Richard Lee, +9 (77-76-153)
