Oberholser Moves Up At Masters

Augusta, Ga.-----Former San Jose State University golf star Arron Oberholser continued his solid and consistent play at the 2008 Masters with a second-round 70 and is tied for eighth place after 36 holes.

Oberholser has a 141 total after two rounds and is tied with fellow American Stewart Cink and Canadian Mike Weir. The trio trails South African Trevor Immelman, the tournament leader at 136.

The two-time All-American while at San Jose State during the 1994 through 1997 seasons recovered from bogeys on holes 9 and 10 with four biridies in checkerboard fashion over the final eight holes. For the second day in a row, he birdied the par 3, 16th hole to go along with birdies on 12, 14 and 18.

The statistics back up Oberholser’s place in the top-10 at the midway point of the first major championship of the season for the men. Oberholser is tied for first in sand saves and fewest putts per hole. He has three-putted once in 36 holes and has seven birdies. Playing in his third Masters, he is tied for eighth in driving accuracy hitting 23 out of 28 fairways.
