HILO, Hawai'i - Thanks in part to Geoff Fry's -2 round, the Tigers improved their score with a +7 round after shooting +10 yesterday in the Amer Ari Invitational. Pacific sits in 19th place after two days with 18 holes left to play tomorrow. USC, one of the 12 ranked teams in the tournament, holds the overall lead after 36 holes.
Fry's 70 was fourth round under par this season, the most on the Tigers. Fry had four birdies in the first nine holes and added one more in the back nine to get to two under par on the day and move up 23 spots in the individual standings.
Anthony Madrid also had a big leap up the standings, shooting a 74 to finish two over par on the day. Madrid did most of his work on the back nine, where he birdied three times and finished at par or better on eight of the nine holes.
James Feutz remains in the overall lead for Pacific, tied for 79th in the tournament. Feutz had a 75 in today's round, ending at three over par after yesterday's 73. The senior had two birdies on the front nine but was hurt by three bogeys in the final four holes.
Casey Scott shot a 76 for Pacific today after shooting a 74 yesterday. He had four birdies on the day, going under par on one, four, 13, and 17.
Tyler Burnes finished up Pacific's day with a 79. Burnes birdied on three of the first five holes but had a double- and triple-bogey that hurt his overall score.
The Amer Ari ends tomorrow with one more round of golf beginning at 9:30 am PST.
