When play was suspended at 8:38 pm CT last night due to the weather, the UCLA Men’s Golf team was in 25th place. After the first round was completed this morning, the Bruins have moved up to 22nd place, even though UCLA had finished play yesterday.
The best score of the day yesterday by the Bruins was a 2-under 70 shot by junior Cole Madey. That puts Madey in 14th place individually after the first round.
Devon Bling and Eddy Lai each shot a 2-over 74, which ties them for 73rd while Hidetoshi Yoshihara struggled on the final seven holes and finished the day with a 5-over 77.
The fifth Bruin was Tyler Collier, who shot a 6-over 78.
UCLA’s team score of 295 is 7-over par and 15 strokes behind yesterday’s leader Northwestern, who wrapped up the first round with an 8-under 280. The only Pac-12 school ahead of the Bruins is Stanford, which finished the first round with a 4-over 292. That score ties the Cardinal for 14th.
Today, the Bruins will tee off at 12:15 pm PT on Hole 1.
