Rain the leader after one day of NCAA Golf Championships

May 23, 2014

Rain was a major factor on the first day of the 2014 NCAA Men's Golf Championships at Prairie Dunes Country Club. Auburn, which was among the first teams to tee off at 8 a.m., endured three rain delays totaling 8 hours, 10 minutes before officials suspended the remainder of the first round. Play will resume on Saturday at 7 am.

The start of Friday's round was delayed 40 minutes and then the teams endured a second delay just over an hour into the round which lasted 5 hours.

After playing close to an hour-and-a-half, the horn sounded again at 3:27 p.m. CT, just as Niclas Carlsson teed off from the 16th (Auburn started on the 10th tee). The teams were set to go back out at 5 p.m. only to see rain continue to fall. The day was officially suspended at 5:50 p.m.

Daniel Stringfellow was able to finish his first nine holes, collecting birdies on the 16th and 17th holes to make the turn at plus-1. Jake Mondy and Will Long both completed eight holes, with Mondy sitting at plus-2 and Long at even-par. Matt Gilchrest is also even after seven holes following birdies on 13 and 16 while Carlsson is plus-1.

As a team Auburn is plus-2, tied for ninth with Kennesaw State, with 15 of the 30 teams able to get on the course on Friday. Oregon is minus-3 to lead all teams.

Zach Foushee of Oregon is 3-under through six holes to lead all players.
