The SCGA's Jeffrey Kang, a rising sophomore at USC, fired his second-straight round of 71 Wednesday to move into a tie for sixth place at the 45th Pacific Coast Amateur Championship. Kang's two-day total of 142 two-under par leaves him three-strokes behind leaders Taylor Travis of Fremont, Calif. and Derek Ernst of Clovis, Calif. heading into Round 3.
Michael Kim of Del Mar, Calif. and Anton Arboleda of UCLA remain in contention, finding themselves tied for 8th after even par rounds Wednesday. The two Southern California golfers sit at one-under par overall.
Each of the 15 associations that make up the Pacific Coast Golf Association (which conducts the championship) names three players in advance of the tournament as its representatives to compete for the Morse Cup. The Morse Cup Team Competition is held concurrently with the first two rounds of the individual championship. The NCGA took home 2011 Morse Cup, with the SCGA finishing in ninth place out of 15 teams.
