FRESNO, Calif. -- The Bulldogs battled round two of the Pacific Invitational, but fell to 11th place Tuesday, Oct. 30 in Stockton, Calif.

Due to heavy fog, the Pacific Invitational was delayed by an hour and a half, but hit full swing by 10 a.m.

The Fresno State men's golf team shot one under par for a score of 287. The 'Dogs sit even with 576.

The Bulldogs shot ten balls into water hazards, which made for 19 penalty strokes. The majority of which were two-stroke penalties and one, one-stoke penalty.

"We actually played a lot of good golf, but threw it away by hitting those ten balls into the water hazards," head coach Mike Watney said.

Nate Jessup swung into a tie for 26th place with a three under par (71-69--140).

"Nate shot a 69, so good for him," Watney said. "That was solid."

Bulldog Rufie Fessler shot one under par to sit in a tie for 39th place (72-71--143).

Jack Mulroy finished round two with an even score (73-72--145). Mulroy made six birdies to sit in a tie for 45th place.

"Considering that Jack shot three balls into the water which lost him six strokes, he shot a 72. In other words, he had the potentially for a tremendous round."

The Bulldogs face the third and final round of the Pacific Invitational Wednesday, Oct. 31. The 'Dogs hope to keep it dry as they tee off at 8:30 a.m. at Brookside Country Club.
