UCO shares lead in Brickyard Crossing

Russ Purser fired a two-under-par 71 to gain the top spot in the individual standings and pace Central Oklahoma to a share of team lead after the first day of the rain-delayed Brickyard Crossing Intercollegiate here Monday.

The Bronchos finished with a 290 total at the 7,180-yard, par-71 Brickyard Crossing Golf Club and is tied with West Florida, three shots ahead of Tiffin.  Host Indianapolis and Missouri-St. Louis are tied for fourth at 294 in the two-day, 13-team tournament that will be shortened to 36 holes after Monday’s second round was washed out by rain.

Logan Gray added a 72 for UCO, while Alexander Hughes shot 74, Cody Troutman 75 and Eric Kline 78.

Purser had 12 pars and five birdies on the day, with a triple bogey preventing him from taking a bigger lead in the medalist race.  He has a two-stroke lead over a trio of challengers heading into Tuesday morning’s final round.
