MGF: PLU INVITATIONAL - Bruins Ulstad Leads the Field but Team is 4th after Day One
TUMWATER, Wash. - With an even-par 72, Mike Ulstad of George Fox University stands atop the leader board but the Bruins as a team stand fourth in the four-team Pacific Lutheran University Invitational men’s golf tournament after Saturday’s action in the two-day event going on here at the Tumwater Valley Golf Course.
The University of Puget Sound holds a two-stroke lead over host PLU, 297 to 299. Pacific University is third at 304, followed by George Fox at 316.
