University of Minnesota senior Erik Van Rooyen has put himself in contention for the individual title with a second round even-par 70 on Friday at Stanford Golf Club. He is currently in a tie for third place at 4-under par 136. The leader of the U.S. Intercollegiate sits at eight-under par.
Van Rooyen played solid all day, stringing together 15 pars and a pair of birdies. His only struggles of the day came on the par four 12th hole when he finished with a double bogey. He opened the tournament on Thursday with a career-low tying 66.
Fellow Gopher senior Robert Bell contributed the round of the day for Minnesota with a two-under par 68. He will head into the final round in a tie for 33rd place. Tyler Lowenstein carded a 73 and is in a tie for 71st place, followed by Alex Gaugert with a 76 and Jon Trasamar with a 77. Trasamar is in a tie for 77th place and Gaugert sits alone in 90th place.
The Gophers are in 14th place with a 36-hole score of 575 (+15). The host Stanford Cardinal is running away with the tournament and is one of only four teams that are sitting under par. The Cardinal are at -17, 11 shots ahead of TCU and 16 shots ahead of St. Mary's and San Francisco.
