No. 7 USC Extends Lead At Southern Highlands Collegiate|
March 7, 2017
The No. 7 USC men’s golf team lost all of its first-round lead on moving day, but collected it all back and then some, thanks in no small part to sophomore Justin Suh’s 4-under 68, and finished the second round of the Southern Highlands Collegiate with a six-stroke lead on Tuesday (March 7) at the Southern Highlands G.C. in Las Vegas.
USC, the event’s defending champion and a two-time winner this season, was 3-over today but still leads at 7-under 569 (278-291), ahead of both Stanford and Oklahoma State, tied at 1-under 575. Pepperdine, who led for some of the second round, is fourth at 3-over 579.
Suh moved into sole possession of second thanks to an eagle on 13 and a birdie on 18 that brought him to within one stroke of California’s Collin Morikawa. Suh, who has two top 10s this year including one second-place finish, had six birdies on the day.
