Rolling Hills, CA – After three rounds of play the USC Trojans Men’s Golf team hold 54 hole lead at 27-under-par.

Arizona State made the biggest move on Tuesday leapfrogging few teams including then second place Stanford to be in second place. They trail USC by only 5 shots now verse 15 after 36 holes.

Koichiro Ishika at 9-under-par tied for 4th and Mason Anderson 5-under-par tied for 12th keeping Arizona State hopes alive for the final day.

Justin Suh of USC continues his individual dominance with a 6 shot lead,  16-under-par. Suh has been playing very consistent with 20 birdies to lead the field.

George Cunningham of Arizona has the best chance to push Suh on the final day. He will tee off first so if Cunningham can score earlier that may add a little pressure.

Cunningham playing partner from Cal Bears Collin Morikawa has been just short this week with 40 pars and only 11 birdies.

Morikawa still is tied for 12th but in the final round he could bring the best out to help Cunningham.

Some might look at the host team USC and say playing at home has it’s advantages but not the case this week. They have just had solid rounds from all six of their golfers.

This PAC-12 Men’s Golf Championships final round will be fun to watch.
