                Cats Liaw and Fox stand 1-2 individually after first 18 holes

               

TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The University of Arizona men’s golf team shot a six-under 278 total Saturday and stands in second place after one round of the ASU Thunderbird Invitational in Tempe, Ariz.

 

Arizona’s 278 tally was it’s lowest in the last 12 rounds played, covering four events, and placed the team second in the 16-team field.  Three of UA’s four countable scores were below par in the opening round.  San Diego State holds a one-stroke lead after carding a 277 (-7).  UNLV (279), Colorado State, Stanford and host Arizona State (283) round out the top five places.

Junior Henry Liaw posted his sixth round in the 60s this spring to vault into the first round lead.  Liaw’s five-under 66 was his low round of the year and gave him a one-stroke lead after 18 holes in the 85-man field.  Five men are tied for second place, including Arizona freshman Ben Fox, who is competing as an individual.  Fox’s four-under 67 is a career low round.

 

Sophomore Travis Esway shot a two-under 69 and is tied for seventh place.  Junior Brian Prouty carded a one-under 70 and is tied fro 13th place.  Nathan Tyler shot a two-over 73 and is tied for 44th place, while Josh Esler tallied an 82 and is tied for 82nd place.

 

Two other Wildcats are competing in the field as individuals.  Trey Denton shot an even-par 71 and is tied for 24th place, while Billy Whalen carded a three-over 74 and is tied for 54th place.
