Gonzaga senior Sean Walsh and Idaho sophomore Daniel Sutton remained in the hunt at their respective men’s regional golf tourneys on Tuesday.
Walsh carded a second-round 2-under-par 70 to jump 15 spots on the leaderbord at the Tucson Regional in Marana, Arizona. Walsh is tied for eighth place – one stroke behind qualifying for the finals.
Walsh’s two-round total of 142 is six shots off the pace set by Stanford’s Franklin Huang.
Sutton sits in third after an even-par 72 in the second round left him at 141 at the Kohler Regional in Kohler, Wisconsin.
Sutton’s effort also has the Vandals in the running for a team spot in the national finals.
Idaho – the first-round leader – is in fifth place heading into the final round. The top five teams advance to nationals.
Kohle is three shots behind front-running Alejandro Tosti of Florida. Idaho (299) is six strokes behind fourth-place Arkansas.
