Welcome back to Bayonet and Black Horse Golf Course for day two of the Saint Mary’s Invitational. After two rounds, the host Gaels own a five-shot lead over West Coast Conference foe San Diego. On the individual side, San Diego’s Mathias Dahl owns a two-stroke lead over SMC’s Jonathan De Los Reyes and Florida Gulf Coast’s Jake Sherwin. Sette in for one more round from scenic Seaside, Calif.!
12:40 p.m.: Many golfers are on their final three holes of the day and both the team and individual titles are certainly still up for grabs here in Seaside. For updates as teams make their way down the stretch, follow @SMCGaels on Twitter.
11 a.m.: One of the par saves of the day comes courtesy of Mac Marr, who ended up way right off the tee on No. 9. Hitting from a spot where patrons around the green could barely see his hat, Marr flew his second into the back bunker and proceeded to get up and down to save par.
9:15 a.m.: Golfers have played about three or four holes apiece and we have ourselves a race for the team title. Saint Mary’s clings to a 1-shot lead over San Diego, with the Gaels currently at 1-under par and San Diego even. The individual race is closer than when we started, with USD’s Mathias Dahl just one stroke ahead of SMC’s Jonathan De Los Reyes and San Francisco’s Jobim Carlos. 11 players remain under par as of this very moment.

Pairings are set, with a final foursome of Jonathan De Los Reyes, Mathias Dahl, San Francisco’s Jobim Carlos and Fresno State’s Michael Pugh set to go off the No. 1 tee at 8 a.m.
