             Oriol, Prouty tied for 40th place individually

               

TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The University of Arizona men’s golf team shot a six-under-par 282 Thursday to stand in 12th place at the 2007 NCAA West Regional at Karsten Golf Course in Tempe, Ariz.

 

Arizona’s five-under round placed the team sixth in the 27-team field after 18 holes.  It was a day where red numbers were commonplace, as 19 teams were under par with the top eight teams at least 10 strokes below par.  UCLA leads the field by five strokes after a 20-under 268 total.  South Carolina (273), Arizona State (275) and New Mexico (275) rounded out the top-three places.

 

The Wildcats were led individually by senior Brian Prouty and freshman Pedro Oriol, who carded identical two-under 70s.  The duo is tied for 40th place.  UCLA’s Erik Flores leads the 141-man field at eight-under 64.

 

Josh Esler and Nathan Tyler are one stroke behind in a tie for 55th place.  The seniors posted one-under totals of 71.  Josh Wilks is in a tie for 108th place at three-over 75.

 

The 54-hole NCAA West Regional runs through Saturday at Karsten Golf Course, a par 72, 7,057-yard layout.  The top 10 teams and two individuals from this regional qualify for the 2007 NCAA Men’s Golf Championships, which is scheduled for May 30-June 2 at Golden Horseshoe Golf Course in Williamsburg, Va.
