Men's Golf Day Two Update at The Goodwin (Insert Thumbs Up Emoji)

Mar 26, 2021
Chun An Yu fired his best round of the year (5-under 65) on Saturday.

The Sun Devil men's golf team hit the tee box early Friday in the second round of The Goodwin held at Stanford Golf Course (par-70/6,742 yards). By the time the afternoon wave started in the 28-team/146-player field, the Sun Devils had made the move to take the lead heading into Saturday's final round.

ASU holds the tournament lead behind a tournament-best 110 pars and is tied with Stanford with 36 birdies, as the Sun Devils shot a 7-under 273 and sit at 9-under 551, five shots ahead of first-round leader Stanford (275-281=556)

Senior Chun An Yu shot his best round of the year with a bogey-free 65 (71-65) and sits at 4-under 136.
