THREE MEN'S GOLFERS RECORD ROUND OF 71 AT PACIFIC INVITATIONAL
STOCKTON, Calif. — Cameron Rappleye, Grant Rappleye and Kyle Candlish each shot an ever-par round of 71 to lead the Sacramento State men's golf team in the second round of the Pacific Invitational on Tuesday.
The trio led the Hornets to a round of 286 and moved the team into 10th place with a two-day total of 574. The tournament will conclude on Wednesday with the final round at Brookside Golf Club.
For the second consecutive day scores continued to be low. Oregon took the team lead with a round of 272 and is one stroke ahead of UC Davis (545-546). Fresno State (554), Saint Mary's (556) and Denver (557) currently hold third through fifth, respectively.
Cameron Rappleye is the highest ranked Hornet, tying for 25th. On Tuesday, he opened his round on the 10th tee and bogeyed three of his first five holes. From that point, he played the remaining 13 holes at 1-under, including a birdie on the par-4 ninth to close his round. For the day, he had four birdies, 10 pars and four bogeys.
Candlish parred his first seven holes and then birdied the par-3 17th and the par-5 18th to make the turn at 2-under. On the front side, he birdied the par-4 1st then had three straight bogeys before birdiying the par-4 5th. He mixed three pars with a bogey on the final four holes. Candlish is tied for 35th overall at 73-71-144.
Grant Rappleye was also in the red through nine holes with three birdies and two pars. He remained at 1-under following a birdie on the par-4 6th but followed that hole with a bogey and two pars. Rappleye is tied with Candlish for 35th place with the exact scores of 73-71-144.
Sacramento State also counted a 73 from Jake Johnson. The sophomore was fairly steady on his first nine holes with two birdies, five pars and a bogey. However, he also had a double bogey on the par-4 15th to leave him at 2-over through nine. On the front, he parred the first three holes before another double moved him to 4-over. Birdies on 5 and 7 alternated with a pair of pars before a bogey on the ninth closed his day. Johnson is tied for 43rd at 73-73-146.
Freshman Jake Pineo, who shot 71 on Monday, recorded a round of 80. Pineo tallied a 40 on both sides of the course with one birdie, nine pars, seven bogeys and a triple-bogey. His 36-hole total of 71-80-151 ties him for 54th place.
