SILVIS, Ill. – Rupert Kaminski led top-ranked Oklahoma City University by shooting a top-10 score in the NAIA men’s golf championships Tuesday at TPC Deere Run. Wednesday’s play was washed out by storms. The second-round will begin again Thursday.

Kaminski, a sophomore from Johannesburg, South Africa, produced a first-round 37-34–71 to stand two shots behind the top individual scores in a tie for seventh place. The Stars tied for 13th after the first 18 holes.

Oklahoma City compiled a first-day 306. No. 19 Cardinal Stritch (Wis.) held the early lead with a 289 on the par-71, 6,651-yard course.

Kaminski sank birdies on the par-4, 411-yard 13th hole, par-4, 300-yard 14th hole and the par-3, 450-yard No. 16. Rowan Lester from second-ranked Texas Wesleyan and David Houlding of seventh-ranked William Woods (Mo.) shared the first-round lead with a pair of 69s.

David Meyers of OCU carded a 34-40–74 to tie for 26th place. Meyers, a freshman from Johannesburg, South Africa, buried five birdies.

Matthew Cheung supplied the Stars with a 36-42–78. Cheung, a senior from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, made three birdies. Peri’Don Castille, a freshman from Dallas, carded a 41-42–83. Castille knocked in a birdie on the par-5, 536-yard 17th hole.

Garrison Mendoza had a 37-47–84 for Oklahoma City. Mendoza, a junior from Clinton, Okla., nailed back-to-back birdies on the seventh and holes.
