PALO ALTO, Calif. -- The University of Colorado men's golf team ended the day where it began, in ninth place and still in the middle of the pack, as the second round of the 45th Annual Stanford U.S. Intercollegiate was completed here Friday.
 
Host and No. 10 Stanford extended its first day lead and did so in a big way, as the Cardinal moved from a one stroke edge to an 11-shot lead after posting the best single round score of the tournament, a 9-under 271; Stanford has a 543 team score through 36 holes, with No. 8 TCU a distant second at this point (554).  No. 22 St. Mary's and No. 60 San Francisco are tied for third, 15 strokes off the pace with 559 team scores.
 
Colorado remained in ninth place, turning in an 8-over 288 score Friday for an overall tally of 11-over 571, which has the No. 71 Buffaloes tied with No. 31 Northwestern.  There are three top 10 teams and 11 in the top 75 competing here, so Colorado has its eye one another solid final round to move up in the standings.
 
"The course played more difficult today, but I really thought we were in position with three holes left to post a pretty good score,” head coach Roy Edwards said.  “We played the par-5 (No. 16) poorly and wound up playing those last three at 8-over.   So I thought we could be in good position, maybe even in the top five, but weren't able to finish.
 
"There were still a lot of good things on the golf course today, and if we can end up with a good round tomorrow, we’ll be in a decent spot.  Other than those hiccups on 16 and 17, we did have a pretty good day." 
 
Senior Jason Burstyn and freshman Philip Juel-Berg continued to pace the Buffaloes overall, though both recorded 4-over par 74s Friday on the 6,727-yard, par-70 Stanford Golf Course layout; they are tied for 27th place.
 
Burstyn, CU’s stroke average leader (72.3), managed just a single birdie and 12 pars for his round, against five bogeys; he was even through four after two pars, his birdie and a bogey, but just couldn’t get rolling en route to his 74.  Juel-Berg had a more adventurous day, ranging from an eagle, one of just three on the day by the entire 96-man field, to scoring three double bogeys; in-between, he had two birdies, 10 pars and two bogeys.
 
Senior Derek Fribbs and sophomore David Oraee are tied for 49th, each posting a 4-over 144 score for 36 holes.
 
Both had nearly identical scorecards: Fribbs fired a 1-over 71 on Friday, with four birdies, nine pars and five bogeys, while Oraee fashioned a 1-under 69, with six birdies, seven pars and also five bogeys.  Oraee had the better opening nine (32), while Fribbs fashioned an even-par 35 on the back nine with the trifecta: three birdies, three pars, three bogeys. 
 
Redshirt freshman Drew Trujillo scored a second straight 4-over 74, with his 8-over 148 total tying him for 71st place.  He had three birdies, 10 pars, three bogeys and two doubles on his day.  He bogeyed the first three holes and turned at 5-over, but was able to get it down to 4-over by birdying Nos. 17 and 18.
 
Two players are tied for the individual lead, each having posted identical 66-66—132 scorecards through 36 holes: Paul Barjon (TCU) and Patrick Rodgers (Stanford).  They own a four stroke lead over a pair of players.
 
The final round of the tournament is Saturday, with play beginning at 9 a.m. MDT off the No. 1 and 10 tees.  The Buffs have had a penchant for playing well in the final round, as evidenced earlier in the week when CU shot the second best single round of the tournament and used it to vault from eighth to fourth at the UC-Irvine Anteater Invitational.
 
"I know we have a really good team, and most of the time when we play well, it is because we eliminated mistakes," Edwards said.  "It's definitely a focused group, and when we really concentrate on making great decisions, we play well.  Maybe the final round lends itself to that."
