AZEVEDO POSTS LOW SCORE FOR MEN'S GOLF IN SECOND ROUND AT KA'ANAPALI

LAHAINA, Hawaii — Landon Azevedo shot 74 for the best score among Sacramento State's six golfers during the second round of the Ka'anapali Collegiate Classic on Saturday. A day after the Hornets shot a 1-under team round of 283, the team posted a total of 300 on Saturday and dropped to 17th place.

Azevedo birdied the par-4 11th hole to start his round and followed with a bogey on the par-4 12th and a birdie on the par-4 13th. He parred his next six holes to stand at 1-under at the midway point of his round. The final nine holes had a little of everything for Azevedo. He double bogeyed the par-3 second and tripled the par-4 fourth to jump his score to 4-over par. He trimmed that mark in half with an eagle on the 460-yard, par-5 sixth. After a par on No. 7, he had bogeys on either side of a birdie on the par-5 ninth.

Jeff Carr and Ethan Davidson shot 75 to tie for the second best mark on the team. Carr had consecutive birdies on Nos. 16 and 17 to stand at 1-under par through six holes. However, he found himself at 4-over just six holes later following a double bogey on the par-5 first and bogeys on Nos. 18, 2 and 5. Carr played his final seven holes at 1-over with three birdies and four bogeys. Davidson had five bogeys over his first 10 holes. He responded by playing his final eight holes at 1-under with birdies on the par-4 sixth and ninth along with one bogey.

Joe Fowler completed the team total with a round of 76. The freshman anchored the Hornet lineup after posting a career best score of 65 on Friday. He triple bogeyed his second hole (No. 11) and bogeyed the par-4 14th to put himself in an early deficit. Birdies on the par-3 15th and par-4 18th trimmed his score to 2-over through nine holes. On the front side of the course, Fowler was 3-over with a birdie on the par-4 third, two bogeys and a double bogey on No. 8.

Overall, Fowler has the highest placement on the team heading into the final round as he's shot 65-76-141 and is tied for 32nd. Azevedo is tied for 61st at 70-74-144 while Carr is tied for 79th at 71-75-146.

Cal took over the team lead after shooting 9-under par on Saturday. The Golden Bears had to withstand a charge from North Florida which was 18-under during the round and now three strokes back of Cal. South Carolina and Georgia are tied for third while West Virginia completes the top five. The top seven teams in the field are all ranked among the top 40 in the nation.

Sacramento State will be paired with George Washington, Southern Illinois and Air Force during the final round on Sunday. The teams will be part of a shot gun start at 8 a.m. HT and will tee off on holes 14-16.
