After a strong first round at the Pac-12 championships Friday, the University of Arizona men’s golf team fell to seventh place by the end of the day at Marana’s Gallery Golf Club.

The Wildcats posted a 6-over 366 total in the first round and were in second place, four shots behind Stanford. But UA is now at 22 over in the second round, which was suspended due to darkness.

Stanford is in first place in the team standings, followed by California and Washington.

Stanford’s Patrick Rodgers leads the individual standings with a 6 under. Arizona’s McMahon is in 10th place.

The second round resumes at 7 a.m. today, followed by the third round at 10 a.m.
