LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. - The UC San Diego golf team sits in second place after two rounds of play Monday at the Thunderbirds Invitational, hosted by Grand Canyon University at the Wigwam Golf Resort, just outside of Phoenix.

UCSD holds a two-round total of 586, 10-over par on the Gold Course. The Tritons are eight strokes behind 22nd-ranked Grand Canyon, which leads with a 2-over 578. No. 12 Central Oklahoma and Dixie State are tied for third at 591, 15-over, in the 16-team field. 

Three Tritons are among the top-10 individual standings with Jay Lim in second and Lewis Simon and Ryan Rankin tied for sixth. Lim is one of just three players below par with a 3-under, 141. He fired a 71 in the opening round and followed with a 70 in the second round on the par-72 course. Simon shot a 71-75--146 while Rankin carded a 73-73--146.
