Long Beach, Calif. - The Santa Clara men's golf team got their season underway Thursday at the Del Walker Intercolligiate from the Virginia Country Club in Long Beach, Calif.

After bogeys on holes 2 and 3, Myers had a string of 14 consecutive holes without a bogey before finally giving way on the 18th to finish with a 70 (-1), tied for 8th place on the leaderboard after the first round.

In the afternoon round, Garrett Logan picked up where Myers left off, and after turning in a first round score of 74 (+3), hovered near even par for almost the entire round, with a birdie on 5, a bogey on 13, and a a birdie on the 18th to finish the round at -1, good for 19th place for the tournament.
