Wallace Leads Huskies' Second Round Push
June 2, 2010
OOLTEWAH, Tenn. -- Washington senior Darren Wallace shot a 2-under-par 70 on Tuesday to lead the Husky golf team, who combined to shoot even par in the second round of the NCAA Championships at The Honors Course. The fourth-seeded Huskies left the course tied for seventh with many teams still yet to complete their round for the day.
The Huskies, who started their round from the 10th tee box, are +1 overall for the tournament.
Wallace, who struggled for much of the season, went without a birdie for the first 20 holes of the competition before breaking out with one on No. 12. He didn't wait long for his next birdie, converting a long putt on No. 13 to give him two in a row. Ultimately he had five on the day and is +1 overall for the tournament.
Freshman Chris Williams has the best score of all Huskies and is 1-under for the tournament. He came out of the gate blazing with three-consecutive birdies on No. 11 through No. 13. He bogeyed 16, but answered that with a birdie on No. 17.
The front nine proved to be much tougher for the Pac-10 Freshman of the Year as he had three bogeys and just one birdie to ultimately end his round with a 1-under 71.
Richard Lee entered the round as the Dawgs top golfer at 2-under, but a 5-over 77 put a damper on his efforts for a second-consecutive individual win. Fellow senior and 2010 Ben Hogan Award winner Nick Taylor shot his second-consecutive round of 1-over.
