WAIKOLOA, Hawaii — Oklahoma State’s men’s golf team opened its spring season on Thursday with a 271 total at the Amer Ari Invitational to stand atop the leaderboard at Waikoloa Kings’ Course.

The Cowboys’ 17-under total put them one shot clear of TCU and two ahead of Southern California at the par-72, 7,074-yard layout.

Oregon’s Thomas Lim fired an 8-under 64 to grab the individual lead.

Redshirt freshman Wyndham Clark and senior Ian Davis were among the four players to finish the day tied for third place after posting 66s.

Clark posted 3-under 33s on each nine with both sides featuring four birdies and one bogey. Davis went out in 2-under 34 despite back-to-back bogeys at the sixth and seventh before a closing 4-under 32.

Sophomore Jordan Niebrugge joined his Cowboy teammates in the top 10, firing a 67 to stand in a tie for seventh place.

Seniors Kevin Dougherty and Talor Gooch each carded 72s to come in tied for 63rd place.
