In the first competition of the spring, Menlo College men's golf team went north to Eagle Point to take part in the Oregon Tech Spring Invitational. It may have been a while since the Oaks competed but that did not stop Menlo from finishing in second place after the first day, with two golfers in the top-five overall, including one man tied for the lead.

Round 1
Menlo entered the tournament knowing they would be without one of their best golfers in Fredrik Ingul. The second year standout was pulled from the tournament due to injury, so the Oaks shuffled their lineup. Cementing his place at the top of the field was Tom Field, who fired a par-72 in the first round, his best first-round score this season. Two others were able to shoot in the 70s in the first round, with Te Shu Kung coming in second at 75, and Christian Ingul shooting 76. Jayrick Joseph Cadelina-Canyete competed for the first time this year and shot an 81 on the first 18 while Vincent Fauria shot an 83 to round out the Oaks competitors.

Round 2
Menlo began the second round in second place and that's where they ended up, with another solid round of team golf (311, versus 304 in the first). Ingul was the top golfer for the Oaks on the final 18, putting up a 74 to shave two strokes off of his first round. Ingul ends the first day of the tournament tied for fourth place overall. Field was not far behind with a 75, which was good enough to tie him for the lead in the tournament after two rounds. Kung finished with an 80, Cadelina an 82, and Fauria an 88.

Thoughts from the Leader
"A strong start had me in good position after the opening nine holes," Field said. "I had some solid iron play and good putting. [I was able to finish] with birdies in four of the last five holes, good enough to a claim of the top spot after day one."

Team Scores
Oregon Tech, the hosts of the event, finds themselves in first place by a comfortable margin after shooting 294 and 304 in the first two rounds. The Oaks are in second place overall, 17 strokes back, with Northwest Christian in third.

Up Next
The tournament concludes with the final round of action Sunday at 9 am in Eagle Point.

This begins a busy month of March for the men's team, who have a match against Occidental on Thursday at Lake Merced Country Club in Daly City.
