EUGENE, Ore. — Sacramento State's Owen Taylor shot 79 during the second round of the NCAA Eugue Regional on Friday at the Eugene Country Club. After two rounds, Taylor is tied for 55th with a total of 73-79-152.
Taylor began his second round with a birdie on the par-4 10th. After a par, he bogeyed the par-3 12th and remained even through the 15th hole. The junior found trouble on the par-4 16th with a triple bogey and made the turn at 4-over par following a bogey on the par-4 18th. On the 16th, his approach just missed the green and skipped through the fringe off the right side of the green before settling into the water.
On the front side of the course, Taylor parred three of his first four holes with the exception being a bogey on the par-3 second. A triple bogey on the 192-yard, par-3 fifth hole moved him to 8-over before he birdied the par-5 sixth. A par on No. 7 came before bogeys on the par-4 eighth and ninth.
Taylor has not been alone with his struggles on the par-3 holes at the Eugene Country Club. The fifth hole has provided just six birdies through the two rounds with 20 double bogeys or worse. The seventh hole has yielded just six birdies with 16 double bogeys or more while the second has 11 birdies with 54 bogeys and seven double bogeys.
The San Juan Capistrano, Calif., native will close out the tournament on Saturday where he will be pairded with Northern Colorado's Conner Barr and Frederick Wedel of Pepperdine. The group will start at 9:20 a.m. on the 10th hole.
Patrick Rodgers of Stanford extended his individual lead after shooting 67 on Friday. Rodgers is now 7-under through two rounds and holds a six stroke lead over a trio of golfers.
