Korte Goes Low; Denver Seventh Through 36 Holes

Oct. 27, 2017


STOCKTON, Calif. – The University of Denver men’s golf team battled tough conditions and slipped to seventh after the second round of the Visit Stockton Pacific Invitational on Tuesday. The Pioneers shot 4-over as a team on moving day.

Par for the course was 72 at the Reserve at Spanos Park.

No. 22 Santa Clara remained in the team lead at 14-under, three strokes ahead of Nevada and No. 29 Brigham Young.

Head coach Erik Billinger went with the lineup of Chris Korte, Jake Kelley, Isaac Petersilie, Eric Hagen and Roy Kang.

“Today wasn’t the day we were looking for regarding the team score,” Billinger said. “Chris and Eric played great. Chris shot a bogey-free 68 and Eric had it 4-under through 16.

“Tomorrow is a new day and these guys are going to give it all they got.”

Jackson Solem, John Sand and Michael Boylan all competed, but as individuals.



Korte bounced back in a big way from yesterday, firing a season-low 68 on the afternoon to jump up to a tie for 21st. The former Regis standout went bogey free for the day.

Hagen kept up his good tournament so far with a 1-under 71 on day two, putting him in a tie for 12th

Kelley couldn’t maintain the momentum generated from Thursday’s round, shooting a 4-over 76 to drop to 30th.

Kang posted a 5-over 77 for the round, putting the sophomore in a tie for 49th.

Petersilie sits in a tie for 99th.

Solem continued to show what he can do, firing a 1-under 71 to jump into a tie for 21st.

Sand finished tied for 73rd after 36 holes of play.

Boylan shot an 85 on moving day.

Round three is set for Saturday.
