Led by a blistering 65 from Max Homa, the No. 1 Cal men’s golf team surged into second place after the second day of the NCAA championships at the Capital City Club’s 7,319-yard, par 70 Crabapple course in Milton, Ga.

The Bears fired an 8-under-par 272 on Wednesday to move to 11-under for the tournament, one shot back of Georgia Tech.
First-day leader Arizona State dropped down to seventh place.

Homa’s round, which included eight birdies, boosted him into a five-way tie at 5-under for fourth place in the individual portion of the tournament. Cal teammate Brandon Hagy, who shot a 69 on Wednesday, is among the players at 5-under.

Arizona State’s John Rahm maintains the overall lead after he followed his first day 61 with a 72 to sit at 7-under par.
