VISTA, Calif. - Lewis Simon is tied for first and the UC San Diego men's golf team is tied for fifth after the first two rounds of the Cal State San Marcos Cougar Invitational Monday at Shadowridge Golf Club.

Simon opened the day by shooting a 2-under 70 and followed that up with a 73 in the second round. Heading into Tuesday's third and final round, the senior is atop the leaderboard with Thane Ringler of The Master's College, both with a 1-under 143.

The Tritons totaled a +36 612, firing a 299 in the first round and a 313 in the second. They are tied with Embry Riddle for fifth place among 12 squads.

"Lewis is off to a solid start for us," said first-year UCSD head coach Jim Ragan. "We struggled as a team in the afternoon round and really need to pick up our play Tuesday."

Host Cal State San Marcos and Texas Wesleyan are tied for the team lead at +14, 590. The Master's College is third with 28-over 604.

Also in the lineup for UCSD are Jeff Roseth (T-27th, +11, 155), Daniel Yang (T-29th, +12, 156), David Smith (46th, +18, 162) and Clayton Yamaguchi (68th, +9, 81). Yamaguchi completed just one round. Competing as an individual, Jacob Corbin is tied for 20th with a 9-over par 153.
