Kaito Onishi fired a pair of sub-par rounds and while senior Leon D'Souza almost matched him, the duo both in the top 10 to lead USC during a 36-hole opening day of the 2021 Pac-12 Men's Golf Championships at the Mayacama Golf Club in Santa Rosa, Calif., on Monday (April 26).

The Trojans are tied for fifth with Oregon State at par 720 (356-364). Arizona State (-25) and Arizona (-24) are atop the leaderboard with Oregon third (-15), Stanford fourth (-5).

D'Souza is tied for 10th at 3-under 141 (69-72), the senior making hay over the final four holes in both rounds. He closed the first round with an eagle on 15 and birdies on 17 and 18 and birdied all three holes in the second round.
