LAHAINA, Hawaii — Jeff Carr shot 66, Casey Leebrick added a round of 68 and Riley Bell was 1-under par with a round of 70 to help the Sacramento State men's golf team finish 5-under par during the second round of the Ka'anapali Collegiate Classic on Sautrday.
Carr's score is the second best of his career and moved him into a tie for 40th in the tournament. He started the second round on the 12th hole and quickly moved below par with a birdie on the par-4 13th. A bogey on the par-3 17th and a bogey on the par-5 first left him at 1-under. He then birdied Nos. 3 and 4 to move to 3-under. His final bogey came on the par-4 fifth and was immediately trailed by a birdie on the par-5 sixth. Carr's biggest jump came with an eagle on the par-5 ninth hole which dropped him to 5-under.
Leebrick was 3-under par behind a late surge. He had three combinations of birdie-bogey over his first 10 holes to leave him even. The sophomore then birdied the par-5 sixth and ninth and the par-4 11th to get to his final score.
Bell also had a good close to his round with four birdies over his final 10 holes. The sophomore was 2-over through eight with bogeys on the par-4 12th and 18th. He began his comeback with birdies on the par-5 first, par-4 fourth and seventh. After a bogey on No. 8, he birdied the par-5 ninth.
The final score towards the team total came from Joe Fowler who shot 72 to finish at 1-over. He was 1-under following a birdie on the 11th (his second hole). However, bogeys on Nos. 13 and 14 and a double bogey on 15 took him to 3-over. Fowler birdied the Nos. 18, 1 and 6 to get back to even. He closed his round with a bogey on the par-5 ninth.
Ethan Davidson, who led the Hornets on Friday, shot 74 in the second round and is tied for 47th. Davidson had four birdies, three bogeys and a pair of double bogeys. Jonathan Tanihana shot 75 while competing as an individual. Tanihana's second round was comprised of three birdies, four bogeys and a triple bogey.
Sacramento State moved up four spots and is 11th heading into the final round on Sunday. Washington, which is ranked 18th nationally, holds the lead at 27-under. The Huskies have a one-stroke lead over No. 5 Oklahoma and a two-stroke edge over No. 23 UCLA.
The Hornets will play the third round with Georgia, Clemson and Wyoming.
