He is the only Cal Poly golfer in the top 25. Freshman Chris Satterwhite was in 30th place at 10-over 154, and junior Daniel Miller was in 35th at 11-over 155.

The Mustangs are in seventh place as a team at 35-over 611 but had been in second after the morning round.

John Chin of UC Irvine was on top of the leaderboard at 6-under 138, helping the Anteaters to a 15-stroke lead in the team score at even-par 576.

Pacific is in second at 591.
