The Tiger golf team sits in 10th after the opening two rounds of the Nick Watney Invitational hosted by Fresno State. At the original time of this story's posting, Pacific was in 11th. However, a late disqualification to a Cal Poly golfer moved Pacific up a spot.
Pacific shot a 295 in the first round and a 296 in the second round. Austin Fox leads the way thanks to a one-under-par 71 in the second round to climb 12 spots up the leaderboard. Nevada leads the tournament following a 24-under-par performance. Pacific's fellow West Coast Conference program, BYU, is in second 11 strokes behind the Wolfpack. The Tigers can leapfrog ninth-place Gonzaga, another WCC program, with a strong round tomorrow. Pacific is just three strokes back.
Austin Fox is tied for 24th thanks to his under-par second round. He was on pace for a four-under finish but stumbled in the final three holes of the day. Fox could easily crack the top-15 or better tomorrow with a strong round, he is three strokes back from a tie for 12th.
Jee Horsangchai shot even-par 72 in the second round and to pick up three strokes on his first round. His 28 pars are tied for the tournament lead. He currently sits tied for 38th. Beau Forest was even par in the first round and is tied for 40th.
The final round of the Nick Watney Invitational is tomorrow in Madera, Ca. Live scoring is available on Golfstat.com.
