USC Men's Golf Tied For Fifth Heading Into Final Round In San Diego
Senior Kaito Onishi carded a 2-over 74 to pace the USC men's golf team in the second round of the Lamkin San Diego Classic at the San Diego C.C. in Chula Vista, Calif., on Tuesday (March 9).
The Trojans, in their fourth event of the season, began the day second in the 20-team field but slipped to a tie for fifth at 12-over 588 (285-303) while UCLA took the lead at 1-under 575.
"The course played tough today - windy, firm and fast," USC Head Coach J.T. Higgins said. "We just didn't handle it very well. We will have to do a much better job tomorrow if we hope to compete."
Onishi (71-74), who had two birdies today and is shooting for his third top 20 this year, and senior Leon D'Souza (68-77) are tied for 12th at 1-over 145. D'Souza is looking for his first top 25 this year.
Freshman Shane Ffrench (73-76) and sophomore Tyler Guo (73-76) are tied for 37th at 5-over 149. Both had one birdie today.
Fifth-year senior Kyle Suppa, in his season debut, is tied for 53rd at 7-over 151 (74-77).
