Men's Golf Has Strong Second Round at Warrior Wave
Nov. 6, 2012
Jeremy Sanders and Johnny Mac Arthur posted their best rounds of the fall season, helping the Pepperdine men's golf team to a 3-under 285 during the second round of the Warrior Wave Princeville Intercollegiate on Tuesday.
The tournament is being co-hosted by Pepperdine and Hawai'i at the par-72 Makai Golf Club at the St. Regis Princeville Resort. Tuesday's strong showing wasn't enough to move the Waves out of sixth place, however, where they have a total of an even-par 576 (291-285). They're nine shots behind the leader and six strokes out of second heading into Wednesday's final round.
After an even-par 72, freshman Frederick Wedel (The Woodlands, Texas/The Woodlands) remains the top Wave on the leaderboard. He's tied for seventh place with a 3-under 141 (69-72). He was 2-over at the turn today but posted four birdies on the back nine.
After a 3-under 69 by Sanders (Chatsworth, Calif./New Community Jewish HS/Univ. of Redlands) and a 2-under 70 by Mac Arthur (Newhall, Calif./Hart HS), both Waves are now tied for 12th place with 1-under 143s. Sanders, a junior, began his round with consecutive birdies on the second, third and fourth holes and added two more on the back nine. Mac Arthur, a senior, posted a total of six birdies on the day, four on the back nine.
Junior Parker Page (Louisville, Ky./Ballard HS) is tied for 40th place at 149 (75-74) and sophomore Kevin DeHuff (Coto de Caza, Calif./Santa Margarita Catholic HS) is in 74th at 158 (83-75). Page posted four birdies, all over his final nine holes.
