STANFORD, Calif. - The Stanford men's golf team fired a five-under second round score of 283 today at the Mauna Lani Invitational and will enter tomorrow's final round in second place, two strokes behind first place Washington.
Oregon (581) is one stroke behind the Cardinal in third place while top-ranked Oklahoma State finds itself in fourth place (584).
Stanford's impressive five-under round today was paced by sophomore David Chung, who shook off an opening round 79 to shoot a four-under round of 68 on Mauni Lani's North Course. Chung had six birdies on his card today against two bogeys and is now +3 for the tournament at 147 and tied for 20th.
Junior Sihwan Kim (142) finds himself in title contention once again after a second round 68 moved him into third place, two strokes off the pace set by Oklahoma State's Kevin Tway. Nick Taylor of Washington is in second place after rounds of 70 and 71,
Senior Jordan Cox is enjoying his best tournament of the year and finds himself tied for eighth place after an even par 72 today after shooting a 73 yesterday.
Stanford will try to win its second team title of the year tomorrow, following its first plaec showing at the Gifford Intercollegiate Championships to close out the fall schedule.
