Men's Golf Slips To 11th At U.S. Intercollegiate

Stanford, Calif. – The San Jose State men’s golf team struggled on the second day of the 45th U.S. Intercollegiate Golf Tournament.  After 36 holes of play, the Spartans find themselves in a tie for 11th place after a 16-over 296 on the par-70, 6,727-yard Stanford Golf Course on Friday.

The best round of the day for San Jose State came from Taylor Bromley who, playing as an individual, carded a two-over 72.  Bromley, starting on the back nine, opened with a bogey on his first hole, but after four straight pars, birdied the 15th hole and made the turn at even par.  A birdie on the first hole, his 10th of the day, got him to one-under, but then a bogey and double bogey on the fourth and fifth holes, respectively, left him at two-over.  He pared his way in and currently sits in a tie for 33rd place at three-over (143).

Justin Estrada, who went out in 31 yesterday, opened with a four-over 39 on his first nine holes on Friday.  A bogey on the 11th dropped him to five-over, but birdies on his way in on 14 and 16 got him back to three-over (73) on the day.  His two-day total of 140 (E) leaves him in a tie for 16th place heading into Saturday’s final round.

Cody Blick who carded six birdies on Thursday, added another on the 2nd hole on Friday to get to five-under.  He bogeyed the par-four sixth and made the turn at even for the day, four-under for the tournament.  However, on the back nine, he had three bogeys and a double, came home in 40, and shot five-over (75).  After two rounds, he is in a tie for 23rd place at one-over (141).

In a tie for 49th place, Daniel Semmler went out in three-over with two birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey.  He came home even par with a pair of birdies and two bogeys to card a three-over (73) and a two-round total of four-over (144).

Connor Covington started his day with a birdie on the first hole, but doubled the second and had two more bogeys on the front side.  He made the turn on a three-over.  Covington struggled on his inward nine with three bogeys and a birdie.  His five-over (75) leaves him in a tie for 68th place with a 147 total (+7).

Landon Polterock had seven bogeys in his first 17 holes, but recorded the team’s lone birdie on the 18th for a six-over (76).  His two-day total is 151 (+11) and he is in a tie for 84th place.

Stanford’s Cardinal team was the only squad who were under par on the day, carding a nine-under 271 and two round total of 543.  They are 11 shots clear of second place TCU, which is at six-under (554).

The low individuals are Patrick Rodgers and Paul Barjon of the Stanford Cardinal and TCU, respectively.  Each has shot back-to-back 66s and are at eight-under (132).

The tournament concludes Saturday with teams going off both the first and 10th tees.  Fans can follow the action online at
