Oklahoma State's Viktor Hovland
LA QUINTA, CA (February 20, 2018) - After the first round of The Prestige at PGA West was cancelled Monday due to high winds it was No. 1 Oklahoma State and Oregon moving into a share of the lead on the first day of play.
With the tournament shortened to 36-holes both teams will begin the final round 1-under and ahead of third place Pepperdine (+1) by two-strokes, No. 12 Stanford (+2) and Northwestern (+2) are sharing fourth one shot further back.
In the medalist race the pace is being set by Northwestern's Sam Triplett who signed for a 4-under 67 on the Greg Norman Course.
Triplett bogeyed only once while rolling in five birdies, four of which came between Nos. 11-16.
Norman Xiong (Oregon) and Franklin Huang (Stanford) share second at 3-under while five others are fourth at 3-under.
Two-time defending champion LSU, ranked ninth in the country, is 3-over and four off the pace.
ABOUT THE The Prestige
54 hole men's college tournament played in
California's Coachella Valley which features an all-
star field of many of major college golf's top teams
and players. The Prestige at PGA West is co-hosted
by eight time NCAA Champion Stanford University of
the Pac 12 Conference and UC Davis of the Big West
There is a college/am
tournament fund raiser the day before the
tournament proper begins which is a great way to
see first hand how these players (many of whom will
go on to PGA Tour careers) go about their business.
