Day 2 Recap

SATICOY, Calif. – Cole Ogden leaped into the top 20 to lead BYU men’s golf to fifth place at the West Coast Conference Championships.

“Tommy (Higham) and Cole (Ogden) played great today,” BYU head coach Bruce Brockbank. “Tommy shot the second lowest score in the third round. The conditions were just really tough; the average score was 81. We felt like we could have done a lot better than where we finished. We had some good rounds, but it wasn’t enough.”

BYU moved up one place to fifth (+61), eight strokes behind fourth-place Saint Mary’s. Pepperdine won the tournament at 46-over-par. Pepperdine's Cody McManus also claimed the individual title, shooting four-over-par.

Ogden jumped up six spots to 15th place, shooting 15-over-par. His lowest score came in the first round when he shot 74.

Tommy Higham made the biggest leap for the Cougars, moving up 17 places to tie for 16th. He shot 17-over-par, including a final-round 75, which was his lowest score of the tournament.

Zach Pritchard also tied for 16th place, falling five spots. He shot 17-over-par for the tournament. Jordan Rodgers tied for 26th, shooting 20-over-par, while CJ Lee dropped to 35th place, shooting 25-over-par.

Rodgers was named to the 2015 Men's All-WCC Team.

Next week, BYU will host the Ping Cougar Classic on April 24-25 at Riverside Country Club in Provo, Utah.
