Men’s Golf In Fourth Place; Lowe And McLeod Shoot Season-Low Rounds At SCVB Pacific Invitational

STOCKTON, Calif. – With senior Scott Lowe and freshman Evan McLeod both shooting a season-low round of 69, the Santa Clara men's golf team carded a 2-under-par 282 and sits in fourth place after two rounds of the 12-team SCVB Pacific Invitational played today at the Stockton Golf & Country Club.

After an even-par 284 in yesterday's first round, the Broncos bettered that score by two shots and sit alone in fourth place, 20 strokes behind tournament leader and 45th ranked BYU. The Broncos trail Saint Mary's by four shots and UC Davis by one heading into tomorrow's final round. UC Davis was ranked 50th and Saint Mary's 89th in the latest Golfweek.com rankings.

Lowe fired his lowest round of the season and McLeod established a career-best score by carding a 2-under-69. The pair entered the day at even-par and are now tied for 10th place at 2-under, 10 shots behind BYU's Joe Parkinson, who leads the field at 12-under 130.
