The No. 18 Cal men's golf team entered the Fresno State Lexus Golf Classic with more than pride on the line. This time, they're playing for history.
The Bears begin the second and final day of the tournament in a tie for seventh place after carding a 24-over yesterday. The tournament was called for the day before the completion of the second round due to darkness on the course
A tournament win would be Cal's fourth of the 2009-2010 season-a new program record. This spring, the Bears have posted a first-, a third- and a second-place finish in tournament action and parlayed that success into a national top-25 ranking.
Stiff breezes raised the scores of the first two rounds at the San Joaquin Country Club in Fresno, Calif. Even the leader, Washington, carded a four-over.
Junior Eric Mina leads the Bears individually. Mina had four birdies and an eagle in the first round to propel him to sixth place overall.
Cal had two other golfers-junior Stephen Hale and freshman Michael Weaver-finish in the top 25 of the individual leaderboard.
The last few holes of the second round will be played today at 8 a.m., followed by the final round immediately afterward.
