DUNCAN, Okla. (Oct. 23, 2017) – Oklahoma Christian golfer Andres Brictson was tied for the lead and the Eagles were in second place in the team race after the opening round of The Territory Classic on Monday at The Territory Golf Club.

OC posted a team score of 5-over 293 and trailed first-round leader Midwestern State (Texas) by three shots in the 14-team event. Eight other teams were within nine shots of the Eagles.
Brictson was particularly effect on par-5 holes on the 7,077-yard layout, finishing 3-under over those four holes. He had four birdies on the day, the same as teammate Juan Pallach, who was one shot back of the leaders at 72.
