Trojans are in 1st place after 2 rounds
Lovemark, Hie Lead USC To Lead At Pac-10 Championships
Freshman duo are first and second after two of four rounds.
April 23, 2007
Freshman Jamie Lovemark is 9-under after two rounds while freshman teammate Rory Hie is 5-under, pacing four Trojans who are under par through the first 36 holes and establishing an eight-shot team lead on Monday (April 23), halfway through the 2007 Pac-10 Championships at the Eugene (Ore.) C.C.
USC, ranked No. 5 in the latest Golfword.com poll, posted rounds of 358 (-2) and 342 (-16) for a two-round 700 (-18). UCLA is in second (355-353, 708) while Stanford is in third (356-364, 720). The Pac-10 Championships, unlike most tournaments, features six-player teams with the low five scores counting toward each 18-hole round.
“I think we got off to somewhat of a slow start, but we were able to get it together,” first-year USC head coach Chris Zambri said. “I think we have a good team and I’m not totally surprised they played this well.
“Rory has been playing great all spring. He’s just such a good ball striker that he can shoot 5-under and not make a lot of putts.”continued…….
