Cameron Henry Leads USC Men's Golf After Western Intercollegiate First Round
Cameron Henry's eagle on the 17th hole moved him into the top 20 as the junior's 1-over 73 led the USC men's golf team's first-round efforts at the 74th Annual Western Intercollegiate on Monday (April 12) at the Pasatiempo G.C. in Santa Cruz, Calif.
USC, in its final regular season event, combined for a 13-over 363 in the six-play, five-count format, falling out of the top 4 with a tough handful of final holes. Washington leads the 13-team field at par.
Henry was the exception to the struggles at the finish line with his 2 on the par 4 17th hole, complementing his birdie on 15 that put him into a tie for 18th, four off the lead. He is seeking his third top 20 of the season after opening the season with two in a row.
Senior Leon D'Souza and freshman Shane Ffrench are tied for 28th at 2-over 72 while sophomore Tyler Guo is tied for 41st at 3-over 73, a quad on 18 costing him dearly.
Senior Kaito Onishi, USC's hottest golfer entering this week, is tied for 56th at 5-over 75, his streak of three straight top 16s on the line.
Senior Kyle Suppa is tied for 83rd at 10-over.
USC will tee off tomorrow in the second round starting at 10:54 a.m. PT with San Diego State with live Golf Channel coverage starting at 4 p.m. PT.
