FRESNO, Calif. – Junior Ryan Mulvany fired rounds of 71 and 70 on Monday and is tied for ninth heading into the final round of the Fresno Lexus Classic.
Mulvany is three under for the tournament and his score of 141 after the first two rounds has him tied for ninth place along with sixth other players heading into the final 18 holes on Tuesday.
The bunched leaderboard holds true for the bulk of the team race as well. Nevada shot 364-367 on Monday in the play-six, count-five format and sits in 13thplace after the first two rounds. But just eight strokes separate the Wolf Pack from fifth place.
Everyone is chasing top-ranked Cal, who has three of the top four individuals and 26 under as a team with a 22-shot lead heading into Tuesday.
Nevada got a low round of 68 from Brian Knoll in the first round but he fell back with an 81 in round two and sits in a tie for 66th along with teammate Andrew Cornella at 149 for the tournament. Taylor Knoll and Gustavo Chuang are a shot back at 150 (T-75th) and freshman Kit Carson is tied for 84th at 151.
The final round at Belmont Country Club is slated for Tuesday.
