Former UTEP golfer tied for 14th at Pacific Coast Amateur
El Paso, TX — Lorens Chan, a junior UCLA Bruin from Honolulu, HI., posted a bogey-free second round of seven-under-par 63 to catapult himself to the top of the leaderboard with 36 holes left to play at the 48th Pacific Coast Amateur Championship hosted by Pine Canyon Club.
Chan (World Amateur Golf Ranking No.93), who opened yesterday with a three-under-par 67, made the par 70 7272-yard layout seem easy today with seven birdies and no bogeys, posting nines of 31-32 en route to a 36-hole, -10 total (67-63-130).
"I have had a little struggle the last few weeks," stated Chan.
"Luckily I made the US Am and now kind of here just figured out the swing so it feels pretty good and I am reading the greens pretty well so I am making some putts which is good."
