Play Suspended at the Arizona Intercollegiate

TUCSON, Ariz. - With high expectations coming off a No. 1 national ranking of its freshman class this fall, the Santa Clara University men's golf team has struggled during its first day of tournament action this spring, sitting at 14th out of 15 teams before play was suspended due to darkness Monday at the Arizona Intercollegiate hosted at the Vistoso Golf Club.

Most of the 15 teams that are competing in the tournament have between three to five holes remaining to complete the second round, which will resume with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. MST Tuesday. The final round will begin immediately after the second round is completed.

Thirty-six holes were initially scheduled to be completed Monday, but play was suspended due to darkness around 5:45 p.m. MST.

When play was suspended, the Sun Devils of Arizona State and the Horned Frogs of TCU led the field with a total at four-under par. California (-2), New Mexico (E) and the host school Arizona (+2) rounded our the top five spots. California's Joel Stalter holds the individual lead at eight-under par.

Junior Scott Lowe (Calgary, Alberta) is currently Santa Clara's top golfer at the moment. Lowe is 1-over par on the day and is tied for 15th overall. No other Bronco is among the tournament field's top 75.
