          BANDON, Ore. — The University of Colorado men’s golf team slipped a couple of notches from third to fifth here Monday, as the 5th Annual Bandon Dunes Championship concluded second round play.
          Missouri, ranked No. 49 in the nation, added to its first round lead, as the Tigers again shot the best team score in the second round, an even-par 284, to finish 36 holes with 3-under 565 tally.  Surprising Utah Valley (ranked No. 179) remained in second, but are now 13 strokes off the pace (578) after entering the day one stroke behind.  UC-Davis moved into third (580), followed by No. 16 Washington (581) and then No. 48 Colorado, the defending tournament champion, at 582.
          Light rain again fell for much of the round, and with winds out of the northwest off the Pacific Ocean at times gusting from 15-to-20 miles per hour combined with the temperature barely making it to 50 made things tougher for the players.
          In fact, of CU’s 12-over par total for the day, nine of those strokes can be traced to just four holes among the scorers, as CU had to count three doubles and a triple.  The nine birdies by the four scorers were thus offset by 12 bogeys.
          Freshman Yannik Paul turned in CU’s best second round score, a 1-over 72 on the 6,603-yard, par-71 Pacific Dunes Course layout, to end Monday in eighth place with a 1-over 143 total.  He started out on No. 15 and was 2-under after six holes, but then had a bad patch where he four bogeys and a double over a seven-hole stretch (with a birdie); he closed strong with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 6 and 7 to get it back down to 1-over.  He had a team-best five birdies and eight pars to go with those four bogeys and a double.  He is seventh in the field in both birdies (8) and par-5 scoring (3-under).
          Sophomore Philip Juel-Berg posted a 2over 73, as he recorded 16 pars and two bogeys in round two; he’s tied for 18th overall with a 3-over 145 scorecard.  He is tied for the lead in Par-3 scoring (1-under for the eight short ones through two rounds), and is seventh in total pars (25).
          Freshman Andrew Bonner is tied for 36th with a 73-76—149 effort, with most of his misfortune Monday coming on No. 1, where he scored a triple bogey 7.  He had three birdies, nine pars and five bogeys otherwise for his round and has played the par-3s ninth best in the field at 1-over.
           Freshman Jeremy Paul, the older of the twins, turned in a 9-over 80, with his 8-over 150 total through 36 holes lowering him into 42nd place.  Paul’s school record streak of eight consecutive rounds under par came to a roller coaster end: starting on No. 9, he bogeyed three of his first six holes, only to score back-to-back birdies to get it down to 1-over through nine holes.  He was still 1-over with seven remaining, but proceeded to endure his worst stretch as a collegian, going bogey-triple-bogey-double-bogey before closing with two pars. 
          Junior David Oraee rebounded from an opening round 80 to record a 3-over 75, his 11-over 155 tying him for 63rd.  He was having a steady round, scoring pars on his first nine holes and then a birdie on his 10th (No. 3), but a bogey and two doubles down the stretch on Nos. 6 and No. 11 undid his round to a degree.  He otherwise recorded 14 pars on Monday.
         "Jeremy wasn’t himself today, but Yannik really grinded it out and David was much better today,” CU head coach Roy Edwards said.  “Aside from some big numbers, we actually had a decent day when we weren’t playing our best.  We were a little off on our game, and when that happens you have to do a better job of managing your game.  The thing that happened today was that we didn’t adjust like we have been to the more difficult conditions, and as a result, took too many big numbers.”
          Washington’s Jonathan Sanders took over the individual lead, firing a 4-under par 67 Monday for a similar 4-under 138 total; that’s good for a one-shot lead over Missouri’s Emilio Cuartero (72—139).  Through two rounds, only five players are in red numbers (under par), with two others holding at even.  The average score in the 84-man field ballooned to 75.95 for the second round compared to 74.39 in the first.
         The third and final round is scheduled Tuesday, with a 9:30 MDT shotgun start.  The best weather of the tournament is expected, with sunny skies and temperatures near 60.
          “I think we’ll play well for sure to close things out here, we’re a good team of grinders,” Edwards added.
