    Sparked by the best round by an Air Force player in nearly three years, the Air Force men's golf team sits in fifth place after the first two rounds of the 2013 WSU Snowman Getaway, hosted by Washington State University. The Falcons shot a 300 in the first round then improved by 19 strokes in the second round for a two-round total of five-over par 581 at the par-72, 7,015-yard Palm Valley Golf Club in Goodyear, Ariz.

    Junior Kyle Westmoreland fired a career-low 66 in the second round, the best score by a Falcon since Tom Whitney shot the same score in the third round of the PING Cougar Classic on April 24, 2010, and senior Andrew Hoops matched his career-low with a 68 in the second round as the Falcons' total of 281 was the best of all 14 teams in the second round. Westmoreland, who rebounded from a first-round 76, is AFA's top individual with a two-under par 142, good for a 10th-place tie. Hoops, who shot a 75 in the first round, is one shot back and in a tie for 12th place.

    Junior Philip Colwell is tied for 32nd after shooting a team-best 73 in the first round and followed up with a 74 for a two-round total of three-over par 147. Sophomore Blake Edwards is tied for 45th (76-73-149) and junior Jack Howard is tied for 56th (78-74-152).

    The University of Missouri holds a seven-shot lead after the first two rounds and Washington State's Michael Anderson is at the top of the individual leaderboard with an eight-under par total of 136.

    The final round will be played Tuesday morning, beginning at 8 a.m.
