Schneider Tied For 12th After Round One In San Diego
SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Jan Schneider is tied for 12th among individuals and Washington sits in 13th after day one of men's golf action at the Lamkin Grips SD Classic in San Diego, Calif.
Schneider, a senior from Erlangen, Germany, fought hard to shoot a team-best 2-under 70 in Monday's first round at the 7,033-yard San Diego Country Club. He was 2-under through eight holes before a bogey on nine and double on No. 13 put him at 1-over. He rallied over the final five holes, converting three birdie opportunities to finish the day 2-under.
"Great round by Jan Schneider today," Husky Coach Alan Murray said. "He really played well and responded to a bad hole on his back nine. He made three birdies coming in, which was important for us.
"Jan was very impressive today."
Schneider sits tied with five others for 12th and is three shots behind leader, Sam Hamed (5-under 67) of Nevada.
Henry Lee shot a 2-over 74 to end the day second among Huskies. He is currently tied for 49th. He battled to get back to even par with birdies on the 11th and 14th holes but closed with back-to-back bogeys.
"Henry Lee played very well also," Murray said. "He just had a couple of struggles on the greens, but apart from that, his game is really close."
Noah Woolsey (76, T-65th), Petr Hruby (77, T-74th) and Teddy Lin (78, T-86th) also contributed to the Huskies' day one efforts.
The Huskies combined for a first-round total of 297 (+9), 14-shots behind host San Diego (5-under 283). USC is second at 3-under 285). Nevada (2-under 286), Colorado (1-under 287) and UCLA (1-under 287) are the only other schools in the 20-team field that are under par after day one.
"We have gotten some work done this afternoon, and we will be ready to go tomorrow," Murray said.
The tournament resumes on Tuesday and wraps up on Wednesday.
