Feb. 14, 2003
WAIKOLOA, Hawaii - Third-ranked TCU is just one shot behind UCLA heading into Friday's third and final round of the Waikoloa Intercollegiate. TCU, in search of its third team title of the 2002-03 season, carded a nine-under 279 on Thursday and has a two-round total of 555 (-13). Seven teams are within eight strokes of the team lead.
Junior Adam Meyer, who transferred to TCU following the fall semester and is playing in his first event as a Horned Frog, has been impressive in his debut. He fired a four-under 68 in round two and currently sits in sole possession of first place individually with a seven-under 135.
Just two shots behind Meyer is TCU teammate Adam Rubinson. The senior is tied for second with a 137 (-5), following a two-under 70 on Thursday. He is in search of his third top-five finish of the year and his first career title.
Junior Stephen Polanski made the biggest move of the day. He entered the round in a tie for 75th place, but shot a team-best score of 67 (-5) to leap into a share of 28th position with an even-par 142. Meanwhile, freshman Colby Beckstrom and sophomore David Schultz are tied for 70th place with scores of 146 (+4). Beckstrom shot a four-over 76, while Schultz posted a two-over 74 in the second round.
All teams will play Friday's final round on the Kings' course after alternating between the Kings' and Beach courses the first two days. Results will be posted on GoFrogs.com when they become available.
