Eugene, OR. -- After round one of the Pac-12 championship tournament, the Oregon men’s golf team were at 9-over par. But during round two, freshman Craig Ronne and sophomore Donald Kay stepped up in a significant way, each shooting a combined 5-under par.

In the second round, Kay shot a 68 and Ronne carded a 69, helping the Ducks finish the day at 7-over as a team, tied for sixth in the team standings.

Oregon is hosting the tournament at the Eugene Country Club, a course all the players are very familiar with.

"I've played this course so many times. So I just felt very comfortable no matter what score I was at,” said Kay.

The Ducks will have Tuesday and Wednesday to try and regain some momentum on the leaderboard.

"I can't wait for the next few days. With how we did in the second round today, hopefully it puts us in contention. This is what you dream of when you're growing up as a junior golfer, trying to win a tournament like this for your team. It's awesome."

This is the sixth time that the Ducks are hosting the Pac-12 Championship in its 60-year history and the first time since 2007. Oregon has won the conference team title three times, with the last coming in 2017.
