Cowboys, Sooners called off course in rain-delayed NCAA Championship

SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – Oklahoma State’s men’s golf team was unable to complete its first round at the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship after inclement weather forced two delays totaling three hours during the afternoon wave. Play was ultimately halted due to darkness at Rich Harvest Farms with half of the 30-team field unable to finish play.

With three holes remaining in its round at the par-72, 7,300-yard layout, OSU stands in third place at 5-under par. Vanderbilt leads at 8-under par, while Auburn was the only team in the top eight to complete its round, firing a 6-under 282 to stand alone in second place.

The Cowboys were called off the course with only one of their five starters completing his round.

Hayden Wood birdied three of his first four holes before turning at 2-over 38. However, the sophomore rallied on his second nine, recording three birdies against zero bogeys to finish in red figures at 1-under 71.

Freshman Viktor Hovland stands at 3-under par with three holes left to finish his round, while senior Zachary Olsen also completed 15 holes and stands at 2-under par.

Junior Kristoffer Ventura is 1-over par on his round with three holes remaining as well.

Sophomore Zach Bauchou stands at 7-over par with two holes to play in his first round.

Play will resume tomorrow morning at 6:30 a.m. (CST) with Round 2 set to follow at 7:15 a.m.

The Oklahoma men’s golf team is currently halfway through the round and sits at even par.
Competing as the No. 13 seed, the Sooners were part of the final group to take the course on Friday and, as a result, have played the fewest number of holes out of the 30-team field. With two golfers through eight holes, one through nine and two through 10, OU is currently tied for 11th place.
Senior Max McGreevy and junior Grant Hirschman, who have both completed eight holes, are currently 1 under par for the round. Both upperclassmen played bogey free on Friday.
Sophomore Brad Dalke has played 10 holes and sits at even par after firing three birdies on the day.
Junior Rylee Reinertson and sophomore Blaine Hale are currently 2 over, finishing nine and 10 holes, respectively, on Friday.
The 15 teams who have yet to complete the first round will return to the course on Saturday at 6:30 a.m. CT. The second round will follow with tee times beginning at 7:15 a.m. CT. Live scoring will be available on
