RANCHO SANTA FE, Calif. - Santa Clara University sophomore Rick Lamb finished Round One of the 2011 NCAA Division I Men's Golf San Diego Regional 3-over par Thursday at The Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe.
Lamb, an All-West Coast Conference honoree and Santa Clara's 2011 scoring leader, recieved an at-large bid into the event, which is featuring 12 of the region's top teams and 10 individuals.
With the top five teams from the three-day event expected to move on to next week's NCAA Championship in Stillwater, Okla., for Lamb to advance, he will need to move up the individual leaderboard. Just one player (who is not a member of those teams) will get the opportunity move on.
At 3-over par through Round One, Lamb will try and make up ground over the next two days. Lamb will play 18-hole rounds Friday and Saturday.
