Scher's Hole-In-One Helps Lift Him 10 Places at NCAA West Regional

TEMPE, Ariz. - UC Santa Barbara junior Glen Scher shot a hole in one on the par 3, 157 yard seventh hole and carded an even-par 70 in the second day of the NCAA West Regional at the Karsten Golf Course on the Arizona State University campus in Tempe, Ariz.

On a day when more than half the golfers in the field of 75 shot over par, Scher's even-par round was one of the lowest and it helped him jump 10 spots in the standings and into a tie with two others for 63rd-place.  He remains 9-over par after two rounds and will play the final round beginning on Saturday morning.

Greg Easton of the University of Central Florida carded a 7-under par 63 on day two to jump to a six-shot lead over his UCF teammate Ricardo Gouveia.  Easton has a 12-under par 128 while Gouveia is at 6-under par 134.  Three others are tied at 5-under par.

UCLA continues to lead the team competition by a healthy margin.  The Bruins finished the day 19-under par, 11 strokes better than UCF.
