The 54-hole tournament started with 36 holes today. Cal’s Sebastian Crampton had a spectacular first round, carding a 63 with birdies on four of the last six holes. He continued that momentum into his second 18, making birdies on three of the first four holes. Crampton posted a second round 1-under 70 to lead the Bears to a six stroke lead after Day One. Blick shot a first round 64 to tie Pepperdine’s Frederick Wedel, but on a run on the inward nine of his second round he had four birdies in a row and five birdies in seven holes. Blick posted a 65 and leads all individuals with a 129, while Wedel carded a 67 to stand in second place in a tie with the world's second-ranked amateur, Arizona State's John Rahm. Wedel's Pepperdine team is in third (545), one stroke behind San Jose State(544).

Rounding out the top five are Arizona State(546), a shot behind Pepperdine, and San Diego State, a stroke behind the Sun Devils at 547.

Play resumes with 18 holes tomorrow.
