Palo Alto, Calif. - Continuing his stellar play in the Bay, freshman Tyler Burnes came up with a -1, 69, on day two of the Goodwin at Stanford to push his way into tournament's top-10 on Friday, Mar. 24. With Burnes at the helm, the Tigers held to their standing as a team in a tie for 11th after going eight-over on the day to finish 36-holes at +17.

For Burnes, his second round at the Stanford Golf Course started off hot as the first-year Tiger came up three birdies in his first seven holes of play. He would trade shots around the turn before a hiccup at the end of his round cost him a pair of strokes and a spot just outside of the tournament's top-five. In all, Burnes sits at one-under for the tournament after posting a 70 and a 69 over the first two days of the tournament. He finds himself seven shots back of the leader, UC Davis' Luke Vivolo, heading into the final day of play at the Goodwin. 

Burnes will attempt to make a push into medal position on the final day of action at the Goodwin on Saturday, Mar. 25. Burnes and the Tigers will tee off at 12:25 pm from the par-4, 10th.
