SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Senior Joshua Granger fired rounds of 68 and 67 on Monday at the Wyoming Cowboy Classic, moving to 5 under and into second place, while leading the UC Davis men's golf team to sixth place at Talking Stick Golf Club.

The Aggies opened the day by shooting a 3-over 283 team score before coming back in the afternoon to card a collective 288. UC Davis (+11) leads seventh-place Santa Clara (+12) by one shot and UC Santa Barbara (+13), Kansas State and UC Irvine by two.

Oklahoma is even after two rounds and owns a one-stroke advantage over BYU (+1) and Colorado. Utah (+2) is two off the pace in fourth place while Gonzaga (+5) is in fifth.

Granger's outstanding day, sparked by nine birdies, led UC Davis. His previous-best career finish was a tie for 14th place at The Prestige at PGA WEST in 2011. He is just two shots behind Gonzaga's Sean Walsh who had rounds of 68 and 65 and is 7 under. Fifteen players are below par overall.

Senior Matt Hansen opened his day with a 69 and had 75 in the second round. He's tied for 34th at 4 over. Ben Corfee is tied for 42nd after his second-round 70 countered his opening-round 75, leaving him 5 over. Luke Vivolo, who went 72-76, is tied for 59th at 8 over while Jonny Baxter is tied for 88th after shooting 74-78 to finish 12 over.

The final round will be played on Tuesday morning.
