SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Three WCC men's golf teams have completed play in the second round of the NCAA Regionals on Friday. San Diego recorded a 10-under par 566 to move into third place at the NCAA West Regional at the Lake Merced Golf Course. Host San Francisco is just three spots behind the Toreros, after an improved second round. Pepperdine, competing in the South Central Regional, is currently in ninth place after two days of play.
LMU senior Greg Moss, who is representing the WCC in the individual tournament at the 2009 NCAA Men's Golf West Regional at Lake Merced Golf Club, had a tough second round and dropped from a 20th place tie to a 63rd place tie.
San Diego, which began the day in seventh place, posted a 10-under par 278 to move into third place at 10-under par 566. Gunner Wiebe led the Toreros' climb up the leaderboard as he carded a second-day four-under par 68.
The Dons vaulted into contention, entering the final round with a eight-under 280 on day two. Senior Kyle Prolo continued his strong play, leading the Dons with a four-under 68 and sits in a share of fifth place overall at 139. Junior Domingo Jojola and freshman Ji Hwan Park share 20th place overall at one-under 143.
Pepperdine's redshirt freshman Josh Anderson had one of the best rounds in the field on Friday to jump into the top 10, shooting an even par-72. He was just one of five golfers to record an even-par score. The rest of the Waves were not so fortunate, as the other four each posted scores higher than the day before.
The top five teams and one individual not on those five teams from each region will advance to the NCAA Championships. The NCAA Championships will be held May 26-30 at the Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio.
