Men's Golf


CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. — Led by Ryan Williams 3-under round of 69, the Sacramento State men's golf team is in third place following the first round of the Folino Invitational on Sunday at Industry Hills Golf Club.

Williams is tied for the individual lead along with Long Beach State's Raymond Ho. Williams began his day with three pars before a bogey on the par-4 4th hole took him to one over. A par was followed by three consecutive birdies on Nos. 6-8 before a bogey on the par-3 9th placed him at 1-under at the midway point of his round. Williams played the back nine at 2-under with birdies on the par-4 14th and par-4 16th along with seven pars.

Sacramento State sits seven strokes behind UC Irvine in the team standings. The Anteaters shot 290 and are followed by LBSU (294), the Hornets (297), Cal State Fullerton (298) and Loyola Marymount (302) in the top five.

Jordan Weir ranked second on the team and is tied for 14th place with a round of 75. Weir had six pars and three bogeys on the front nine and added a birdie on the par-3 15th with seven pars and bogey on the back side.

Aaron Beverly and Jordan Swanson shot 76 and 77, respectively, to provide the final two scores towards the team total. The pair had polar opposite rounds and Beverly was 5-over through nine holes before playing the back nine at 1-under with the help of three birdies. Like Beverly, Swanson birdied the first hold and then carded seven straight pars. His final 10 holes consisted of five pars, four bogeys and a double bogey.

Owen Taylor finished his round at 79 with one birdie, nine pars and eight bogeys.

The three-round tournament continues on Monday.
