                Esway’s 68 sparks a five-under team total for the Wildcats

               

TUCSON, Ariz. ?- The University of Arizona men’s golf team shot a five-under-par 283 Thursday and moved into a tie for 12th place at the 2006 NCAA Championships at the Crosswater Club at Sunriver Resort in Sunriver, Ore.

 

Arizona’s five-under effort propelled the Wildcats 11 spots up the leaderboard and into a tie with North Carolina State and Georgia for 12th place at three-over 579 in the field of 30 teams.  Washington leads the field by three strokes at 13-under par 563.

 

It was an up-and-down day for Arizona, as the squad was six-under after nine holes, but gave those strokes back within the next three holes.  UA rebounded by playing the last six holes at eight-under par and finished with the 283.  It was the team’s lowest round in relation to par at the NCAA Championships since a six-under 282 during the third round of the 2001 event in Durham, N.C., a span of 17 rounds.

 

Sophomore Travis Esway led the way today carding a four-under 68, which was his career-low round in relation to par at the NCAA Championships.  After two rounds, Esway is the only Wildcat under par and is tied for 19th place individually at two-under 142.

 

Also posting sub-par rounds Thursday for Arizona was Brian Prouty and Josh Esler, who both shot a one-under 71.  Prouty is currently tied for 42nd place at 145 (+1), while Esler is tied for 80th place at 147 (+3).

 

Freshman Ben Fox tallied a four-over 76 on the day and is tied for 92nd place with a four-over 148 (+4) total.  Henry Liaw posted a second-round 73 (+1) and is tied for 106th place at five-over 149.

 

The 2006 NCAA Championships run through Saturday at the Crosswater Club at Sunriver Resort, a par 72, 7,630-yard layout.  Arizona’s tee times Friday will begin at 8:35 a.m. PDT from the first hole.
