Washington's Chris Williams was tied for the individual lead and the Huskies men's golf team was in second place overall in Tuesday's second round of The Prestige at PGA West tournament in La Quinta, Calif.
Monday's first round was suspended by darkness and was completed Tuesday morning. Not all players completed the second round Tuesday. The final round is Wednesday.
Williams was 3-under par in the second round — with a double bogey on hole No. 2 but then six birdies the rest of the way. The Huskies trailed UCLA in the team standings but the Bruins still had a third of their second round to complete Wednesday morning.
Trevor Simsby, with a 2-under par round Tuesday, and Cheng-Tsung Pan of UW were tied for ninth.
"I'm really excited about our round," coach Matt Thurmond said. "Today was a test of our mental strength as a team."
Senior Charlie Hughes is 3-over and tied for 24th.

Santos, who won The Gold Rush in the spring opener last week, shot a final-round 1-under-par 70 for a 54-hole score of 218 to claim a 1-stroke victory over Aram Choi of Portland State. Gonzaga's Victoria Fallgren finished third.
