March 7, 2016

BANDON, Ore. – The Boise State men’s golf team improved its team score by seven strokes in the second round of the Bandon Dunes Championship, but dropped a spot in the standings, Monday.

The Broncos (302-295—597, +29) will enter Tuesday’s final round in eighth place, six strokes clear of a ninth-place tie between Washington State and Denver.

“We’ve done a decent job of hanging in there so far,” head coach Dan Potter said. “This course and the conditions can throw a lot at you, and we’ve dealt with it for the most part. We still have room to be a lot sharper and I hope we can do that tomorrow.”

Junior Kyle Mitsunaga carded a 1-over 72 at the par-71, 6,682-yard Bandon Trails Course at the Bandon Dunes Resort, moving into a tie for 25th with a two-round total of 149 (77-72, +7).

Sophomore Tristan Rohrbaugh is also tied for 25th, posting rounds of 75-74 (149, +7).

Boise State will enter the final round two strokes back of Oregon State. Ninth-ranked Clemson leads the tournament with a 10-under 564, while a trio of individuals lead the field at 3-under.

Sophomore Jacob Byers rebounded from an opening-round 84 (+13) to card a second-round 2-over 73. Rounding out the scoring were freshman Connor Bell (73-79—152, +10) and senior Logan France (77-76—153, +11).

The final round is scheduled to begin with a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. (MT), and live scoring is available at Golfstat.com.
