Nov. 1, 2011
STOCKTON, Calif. – Kevin Lucas backed up Monday’s 66 with an even-par 71 on Tuesday and the senior holds a one-shot lead heading into the final round of the Pacific Invitational.
Nevada, which was tied for the lead in the team race after the first round, fell back with a 297 on Tuesday but the Wolf Pack is just two shots back of Colorado State on the team leaderboard. The 54-hole tournament at Brookside Country Club concludes Wednesday.
Lucas entered the day a shot off the lead and his 71 was enough to take lead on Tuesday as scores were higher than the previous day. He leads by one over Oregon State’s Alex Moore and Colorado State’s Kirby Pettitt. Cal Poly’s Scott Patterson is two shots back.
Colorado State holds the overall lead at 5-over 573. Nevada is tied with Oregon State two shots back at 575 with Charlotte and Kansas State two more shots back.
Gustavo Chuang is tied for 10th for Nevada, six shots back of Lucas. Gavin Kwon and Brian Knoll are tied for 32nd with freshman Zak Griffiths tied for 38.
