VISTA, Calif. - The UC San Diego men's golf team opened its season Monday and sits in a tie for third place after two rounds of the Cal State San Marcos Cougar Invitational at Shadowridge Country Club.

UCSD totaled a 29-over 605, shooting a 310 in the opening round and coming back to card a 295 over the second 18 holes to move up two spots in the standings.

Oklahoma City sits atop the leaderboard with a 14-over 590 (298-292). Host CSU San Marcos, which led after round one, is a close second at 592 (294-298). The Tritons are tied for third with The Master's College, which shot 302-303--605 on the par-72 layout.

Individually, the Tritons were led by a pair of players tied for 14th overall. Lewis Simon and Daniel Yang both sit at a 6-over 150, mirroring each other with a 77 in the first round and a 73 in the second. Jacob Williams is tied for 25th with a 9-over 153 (77-76), Jay Lim is tied for 42nd with a plus-13 157 (84-73) and Clayton Yamaguchi is tied for 61st with a 20-over 164 (79-85).

Simon leads the field in pars with 28 while Williams has a tournament-best two eagles. Williams and Yang each recorded five birdies. 

UCLA's Jake Knapp is the individual leader after carding a 9-under 135, which included a 7-under 65 in the second round, the lowest total of the day. Adam Loran of CSU San Marcos is second (71-73--144) and Oklahoma City's James Marchesani is third (72-73--145).

It was the first time UCSD had been in action since competing at Cal State Monterey Bay's Otter Invite back in October of 2012.
