Senior Eric Sugimoto carded a 70 to lead the No. 9 USC men's golf team on the first day of The Goodwin at 10-over on Thursday at the Stanford (Calif.) G.C.
The Trojans are tied for 20th after 18 holes of the three-day event. TCU, at -16, is in first.
Sugimoto had two birdies, including on 18, against two pars for his even round, good for a tie for 36th.
It hasn't happened much this season, but both of USC's top two players struggled during the same round as sophomore Rico Hoey is tied for 103rd at 5-over 75 while freshman Sean Crocker is tied for 115th at 6-over 76.
Freshman Jonah Texeira, playing individually, is tied for 51st at 1-over 71.
Play continues Friday and Saturday. The Trojans tee off in the second wave Friday, first off at 12:15 p.m.
