Host Huskies in front after Day 1 of 2022 Pac-12 Men's Golf Championships
SAMMAMISH, Wash. - Led by senior Noah Woolsey's 6-under-par 136 (65-71), No. 8 nationally ranked and host WASHINGTON (4-under 706) holds the team lead through Monday's opening 36 holes of the 2022 Pac-12 Men's Golf Championships at par-71, 6,979-yard Aldarra Golf Club.
UW and No. 4 ARIZONA STATE shared the first-round lead at 9-under 346 before the Huskies pushed the lead to double digits midway through Monday's second 18. The Sun Devils (even-par 710) better navigated an afternoon shower and cooling temperatures on their inward nine to narrow the margin to four through 36 holes.
Woolsey opened 4-under in his first three holes en route to a 6-under 65 and held a three-shot lead through Monday's opening round.
STANFORD junior Barclay Brown followed up his first round 3-under 68 with a 4-under 67 to own the 36-hole lead at 7-under 135. Brown's play helped the 17th-ranked Cardinal, which trailed by 13 shots after Round 1, post the only under-par team score (2-under 353) of the second round and climb from sixth to third (2-over 712).
The grueling 36-hole day took its toll on the 72-player field in the afternoon - 23 players were at par-or-better during a first round with a 72.9 scoring average, but only 11 players remained at level-or-better after a second round that played over a full shot tougher (74.2).
Tuesday's third round is slated to start off split tees beginning at 10:00 a.m. PT.
Daily highlights will be featured across Pac-12 Network, Pac-12.com and Pac-12 social media channels, culminating with a special half-hour recap on Pac-12 Network on Thursday, April 28 at 7:00 p.m. PT.
