LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Gonzaga University sophomore Brandon Crick shot a second-round 66 at the Shootout at Angel Park Saturday, the lowest men's golf score for a Bulldog since at least 2000.
Although complete records are unavailable, a quick check of past results shows three golfers shooting 67 during the 2004-05 season - Trevor Loe and Stu Bell in the University of Idaho Vandal Fall Classic in September, 2004, and Jimmy Hayes at the Boise State University Bronco Invitational in October of 2004. Those were the lowest rounds posted dating back to the 1999-00 season.
Crick, who was one of four Bulldogs to shoot a 68 last season, had opened with a 74 to give him a 36-hole total of 140 and a tie for second over the 6,722-yard, par 71 layout at Mountain Course at Angel Park.
Sueng-su Han of the UNLV "B" team holds the first-day lead at 138 after rounds of 70-68. Crick is tied with Jed Dirksen of Arizona State University who is playing as an individual.
The Bulldogs are 15th at 611 in the tournament hosted by the University of Hawai'i. The UNLV "B" team leads the tourney with a 565 for a 7-stroke lead over Cal State Northridge.
