Cal Seventh After Two Rounds Of Western
SANTA CRUZ, CA - Cal (353-360 - 713, +13) dropped two spots into seventh place following the conclusion of second-round action Tuesday at the Western Intercollegiate hosted by San Jose State at Pasatiempo Golf Club. Four Cal players - KK Limbhasut (69-74 - 143, +3), Collin Morikawa (71-72 - 143, +3), Jamie Cheatham (73-70 - 143, +3) and Sebastian Crampton (71-72 - 143, +3) - are tied for 30th place.
Cheatham had the top performance of the day by a Golden Bear with an even-par round that moved him up the leaderboard 20 spots. Cheatham, who began on the sixth hole in a shotgun start, would birdie his second and third holes of the round by making a 30-footer on the par-four seventh and a 20-foot downhill slide on the par-three eighth. He would never fall below even-par the rest of the round, adding a birdie on the par-four 14th while making bogey at the par-four 11th, 16th and fourth holes.
"I had a nice start," Cheatham said. "It gave me some good confidence with the putter early. Then I kept the ball in play and avoided making big numbers. My play from tee to green has been a strength. Pasatiempo is such a good test of golf in every facet of the game."

Rams leapfrog Browns, reportedly targeting Carson Wentz over Jared Goff at No. 1
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Rams pulled off a blockbuster trade with the Titans Thursday, leapfrogging the Browns to move up to No. 1 in NFL Draft 2016 to draft a quarterback.
Question is, which one will they take?
Sam Farmer of Los Angeles Times reports they are targeting North Dakota State's Carson Wentz, but that Cal's Jared Goff is still heavily in the mix and now they have time to decide.
Farmer reports that it will definitely be one of the two quarterbacks and that the Rams will "turn over every stone.''
