Dixie State’s men’s golf team left the course in a two-way tie for fourth place after play was suspended late in the second round at the Academy of Art-hosted Bay Area Invitational on Monday at The Course at Wente Vineyards. The Trailblazers had completed 16 of their 18 holes in the second round when the horn sounded due to lightning in the area.
DSU actually led the tournament after the opening 18 holes as the Trailblazers fired a first round plus-17 305, three shots clear of second-place Holy Names (+20, 308) and four strokes ahead of both Colorado School of Mines (+21, 309) and Sonoma State (+21, 309).
Four Trailblazers were listed in the top 20 of the leaderboard after round one, paced by junior Nicklaus Britt who was tied for fourth after an opening 2-over 74. Freshman Landon Anderson also found himself in the top 10 through 18 holes with a 4-over 76, which was good enough to put him in a seven-way tie for ninth, followed by senior Dalton Stanger in t-16th at plus-5 77, sophomore Jayce Frampton in t-20th at plus-6 78 and freshman Spencer Wallace in t-30th at plus-8 80.
Round two is scheduled to resume Tuesday at 7:45 a.m. PT, which will be immediately followed by the final round.
