NCAA Men's Golf regionals: Stanford bumped from first

NCAA Men's Golf regionals: Stanford bumped from first

No. 24 Florida State Men's Golf is second overall at 2-under and trails top-ranked USC by only three strokes. The top four scores from each school each day count toward the team total. The top five teams and one individual not on those teams qualify for the 121st NCAA Men's Golf Championship at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill., May 26-31.

Ellis, an All-ACC Team and Arnold Palmer Cup selection, is fourth overall at 3-under.

Baylor's 265 was eight strokes better than any team in the field and helped the Bears turn a six-stroke deficit against tournament-host Stanford into a seven-stroke lead. He rounded out his day with back-to-back pars on Hole No. 8 and Hole No. 9.

Duke's Alex Smalley, the only player to break par both rounds with a pair of 1-under 71s, estimated the real par of the 7,300-yard U-Club course at something closer to 73.5 than the 72 printed on his scorecard.

No. 44 New Mexico, which is 6-under 570 through two rounds, is leading a field that includes four teams ranked in the top 20.

Ducks' reward for Game 7 win is date with Rinne and Preds
There is no question about which team has the edge in goaltending going into this final game of the series. He will likely get the start for the Ducks in what will ultimately be a defining game for this franchise.

"I thought we got off to a pretty decent start today", said College of Charleston coach Mark McEntire. The Kranj, Slovenia, native's lone birdie came on the course's No. 6 par-5 hole. "We've had a really good year, and this was our worst day of the year".

Redshirt senior Cristobal Del Solar is tied for 13th at 1-over, carding a 3-over 74 on Tuesday. After an opening 75, sophomore Sam Horsfield led the Gators with a 2-under 70 in Round 2. "Hopefully it's out of our system and we can bring it back and play great (Wednesday)".

Still standing is the Stanford Golf Course record 59 set by Viraat Badhwar in 2015.

Dossey is tied for third in par-4 scoring at 3-under 3.85, while Perrine is tied for fifth at 2-under 3.90.

Kuest was the only Cougar to shoot under par on Tuesday. Clark and Strafaci are tied for 16th place individually at even-par 140. May has the first tee time at 11:15 a.m., and he'll be followed in 11-minute intervals by Bailey, Shattuck, Perrine and Dossey, respectively.
