BOULDER, CO (April 29, 2017) - A shot won't be struck on Saturday at the Pac-12 Men's Championship. After snow began late Friday and continued Saturday it was deemed early in the afternoon that second round play would not resume.

With a handful of teams still trying to complete their second round it is No. 9 Oregon leading the way. The individual lead is being shared by Wyndham Clark (Oregon) and Carl Yuan (Washington) at 2-under.

The hope is for play to resume on Sunday at the earliest beginning at 9 a.m. PST. The forecast is favorable as far as bright sunshine goes but the predicted high temperature is only 49 degrees.

At least 36-holes must be completed for the tournament to be considered official.


The first day of the Pac-12 Men's Championship included a delay, frigid weather, snow and then not enough daylight. While all that was going on No. 9 Oregon made its way to the top of the leaderboard at Boulder Country Club with a few holes remaining for most of the field in the second round.

Oregon, the defending NCAA champions, are currently 16-over after being led Friday by 2-under medalist co-leader Wyndham Clark. One of the top players in the nation this year, Clark opened with a 1-under 69 and with two holes remaining in his second round he is 1-under. So far Clark has produced five birdies and four bogeys during the round with his best stretch of golf coming on Nos. 12-15 when be birdied three-times.

Fellow Ducks Edwin Yi (T8; +4) and Ryan Gronlund (T16; +6) are also showing well for Oregon after a difficult first day.

Sharing the medalist lead with Clark is Carl Yuan of Washington. After shooting a 2-under 68 in the first round Yuan is even-par after 16 holes in his second round. The highlight of the day for Yuan was his second round eagle on the par-4 7th.

Behind the individual leaders comes Rico Hoey (USC) in third place at even-par while Franklin Huang (Stanford) and Corey Pereira (Washington) are sharing fourth at 1-over. Of the top-five only Hoey and Huang have completed their second rounds.

In the team standings behind Oregon is Washington (+19) in second, No. 7 Stanford (+26) winner of the last three Pac-12 Men's Championship is in third place, California (+31) and No. 1 USC (+31) are tied for fifth.

Off the top we mentioned the weather and it is going to be a major concern throughout the weekend. Currently the City of Boulder official website is predicting 3-8 inches of wet snow from 9 p.m. Friday to 3 p.m. Saturday. The Sunday forecast calls for bright sunshine and temperatures in the 50s but the question will be can the snow melt.
