Oct. 8, 2007

MACON, Ga. - Gonzaga University's men's golf team shot a second-round 306 and the Bulldogs struggled as a team Monday at the Brickyard Golf Collegiate Championships.

Only freshman Kyle Huss improved from his opening-round score, shooting a 76 Monday after a first-day 80. His 36-hole total of 156 moved him from a tie for 71st to a tie for 64th.

Brandon Crick, tied for 16th after Sunday's 71, had a team-best 75 Monday over the 7,128-yard, par 72 Brickyard at Riverside Golf Course. That dropped him from a tie for 16th to a tie for 32nd a 146. Derek Cheney shot 77 and Trevor Loe a 78 to leave both at 153 and in a three-way tie for 55th. Bowdy Ehler had an 80 and is at 158 to fall from a tie for 62nd into a tie for 69th.

Gonzaga's 36-hole total of 606 dropped the Bulldogs one spot to 12th, four strokes behind host Mercer University. The University of Georgia took the 36-hole lead at 551 for a 2-stroke lead over Clemson University as the two teams flip-flopped positions from Sunday.

Georgia's Brian Harman overtook teammate Harris English for the individual lead. Harman fired a 66 Monday, one stroke off English's course record 65 of Sunday, for a 36-hole total of 134 and a 2-stroke edge over English, who came in at 71.

Tuesday's final round will tee off at the Brickyard at 5:30 a.m. Pacific time. Live scoring is available at http://www.golfstat.com.
