LSU's Drew Doyle

STOCKTON, California – The LSU men’s golf’s team shot a 13-under 275 in the second round of the NCAA Stockton Regional as the Tigers shot a 13-under 275, the second lowest team round of the day, and remained in fifth place on Tuesday at The Reserve at Spanos Park. Individually, Drew Doyle shot the lowest score of the day in the field as he finished at 7-under 65.

LSU trails Arizona State (21-under 555), Stanford (19-under 557), Oregon (16-under 560) and Brigham Young (.16-under 560).

The top five teams from regional advance to the NCAA Championship on May 27 through June 1 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Drew, a sophomore, fired a career-low round. It marks the fourth time in LSU history where a player has shot a 7-under 65 at an NCAA Regional event as Doyle joins Sam Burns (2017 – Baton Rouge Regional), Eric Ricard (2016 – Franklin, Tenn., Regional), and John Peterson (2011 – Stillwater, Okla., Regional). Doyle ended the second day tied for 7th position at 6-under 138, only one shot behind the leaders.
