BANDON, Ore. — Washington junior Chris Williams shot 67 on Saturday in the second round of the Bandon Dunes Championship to take over the tournament lead and help the Huskies stay atop the team standings.
Williams enters Sunday’s final round at the Bandon Trails Course with a two-shot advantage over Oregon’s Rak Cho. A win for the all-American would give him a school-record fifth medalist honor.
Williams’ round was the lowest in the field. He entered the day tied for seventh after a 71 in Friday’s first round.
Cheng-Tsung Pan shot an even-par 71 and is third among the 85-player field at 1-under 141. Washington leads Long Beach State by seven shots in the team standings.
