Moscow High graduate Chris Williams shot a 2-over-par 72 on Tuesday and sits in a tie for third place after 54 holes – as do his Washington Huskies – at the Pacific-12 Conference Championships at the Los Angeles Country Club.
Williams three-round total of 2-under 208 leaves him one stroke behind UCLA’s Jonathan Garrick and six strokes back of leader Max Homa of California heading into today’s final round.
Top-ranked Cal (1,056) has a two-stroke advantage over third-ranked UCLA, while the fourth-ranked Huskies are 22 shots off the pace.
Washington State (1,116) is 11th, six shots in front of last-place Utah.
Michael Anderson (216) leads the Cougars. He is tied for 14th place.
• Gordon Webb (148) is in eighth place and Aaron Cockerill (149) is tied for ninth as the Idaho Vandals sit in seventh after the second round of the WAC Championships in Henderson, Nev.
New Mexico State’s Kenneth Fadke and Willy Hogan are tied for first at 145 and the Aggies are running away with the 10-team tourney – leading by 17 shots over second-place UT Arlington. The Vandals (607) are six strokes away from second place.
