Laguna Niguel, CA -- The LMU men's golf team posted a two-round 603 to sit in a tie for sixth place with Cal Poly at the 2009 Anteater Invitational hosted by El Nigueal Country Club in Laguna Niguel, Calif., on Monday afternoon. The Lions are 18 strokes behind leader and host UC Irvine, who paced the 10-team field with a 585.
The Lions posted a first round 294 to sit just five strokes behind UC Irvine. However, afternoon wins picked up and made the Lions last rounds tougher as they finished with a 309 in the second round.
