PacWest golf: Ng’s 3-under 69 puts junior in tie for lead, Vuls on top

  • UHH photo UH-Hilo junior Keith Ng played a bogey-free back nine Monday at the PacWest championships, sharing a two shot lead with two golfers at 3-under 69 in Arizona. UHH headed to the second of three rounds with a two stroke lead.

On a day defined somewhat by his steady iron play, UH-Hilo’s Keith Ng wasn’t particularly thrilled with his tee shot on the par-3 third. His bunker shot wasn’t much better, but sinking a 21-foot birdie served as a cooling effect in the hot desert air.
