EL MACERO, Calif. â€" The winds reached nearly 20 miles per hour on day two of the El Macero Classic Saturday, but that was a significant improvement from the conditions during Friday's opening round of the tournament.
As the wind died down, scores for the Boise State men's golf team dropped as well at the El Macero Country Club.
Senior Logan France and junior Kyle Mitsunaga took advantage of the conditions, each carding 1-over 73s. France, who shot 82 (+10) on the opening day, registered five birdies â€" including four-straight on the back nine â€" on day two. He will enter Sunday's final round at 11-over for the tournament (155).
Mitsunaga reeled off 15 pars, a pair of bogeys and a birdie on day two, improving on his opening-round 83 (+11). He enters Sunday's final round at 156 (+12).
Junior David Elliott, who was tied for 14th entering round two following a 3-over 75, shot 79 (+7) in the second round, dropping to a tie for 45th (75-79, +10) â€" tops for the Broncos.
Sophomores Jacob Byers (79-78-157, +13) and Tristan Rohrbaugh (83-76-159, +15) rounded out the scoring for the Broncos, who will enter the final round in sole possession of 13th (619, +43). Boise State shot 300 (+12) in the second round, improving by 19 strokes from day one.
Texas Tech leads the tournament at 10-over (586), and a trio of golfers will enter the final round tied atop the leaderboard at even-par.
