Men's Golf Round Two Recap From San Antonio
The Sun Devil men's golf team got strong finishes from Cameron Sisk and Chun An Yu and another solid day from Mason Andersen in the second round of the strong 16-team Cabo Collegiate Tuesday held this year at TPC San Antonio. ASU sits in fourth-place and 10 shots behind leader Oklahoma.
ASU, the defending tournament champion, improved by 10 strokes from Monday (301-291) led by a great finish. In the final three holes there were six birdies and no bogeys, and junior Cameron Sisk birdied his final three holes after a bogey at 15.
"We are really loving this competition," says head coach Matt Thurmond. "The weather and course are really different for us and the opportunity to fight from behind is good experience for us too. Mason and Ryggs were really steady and solid today. They were never in trouble and posted really good scores. David got off to a rough start, but played his last 12 holes in two-under. He's fighting hard, even though he isn't playing with his A game. Kevin and Cam have struggled a bit, but they work so hard out there and it really pumped me up to see them play the last three holes five under par between the two of them.
"This is just a great test for us against a great field more in conditions that favor them. We are excited for tomorrow and trying to catch everyone. We knew we would get better and better each day this week and hopefully our better will help us make a big move tomorrow."
TPC San Antonio's Oaks Course, one of the toughest on the PGA TOUR, was a little easier on Tuesday, and Andersen was ready to post a solid number. He had four birdies en route to a 1-under 71, as he is tied for fifth and just four shots back of Vincent Norman of Florida State.
Both David Puig (75-73) and Ryggs Johnston (76-72) are tied for 19th at 4-over 148.
--The tournament started in 2010 and ASU has competed in it three times. Besides its 2020 title it finished second in 2019 and fourth in 2018.
