First Day Action Suspended

FRESNO, Calif. - The Kansas State men's golf team began its spring season Monday at the Fresno State Lexus Classic. After struggling during the morning round the Wildcats were putting together a better second round but will have to wait until Tuesday morning to finish due to darkness.

The action will tee of Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m. (CST) with a shotgun start. Once the players finish their second round they will continue straight into their third round.

Before the stoppage of play the Washington Huskies were atop the leaderboard with a 4-over par 363. One stroke behind Washington in second place is Pepperdine at 5-over par 355. In third place is Michigan at 10-over par 372. BYU is in fourth place after carding an 11-over par 361. Rounding out the top-five is San Diego at 12-over par 366.

The Wildcats are currently tied for 14th place after carding a 40-over par 380 and are tied with St. Mary's.

"We played like a team that hasn't played in a tournament in four months," said head coach Tim Norris. "We had some better scores in the second round for a couple of the guys but for the rest the course played pretty tough. It is a starting point and we are glad to get the spring kicked off and hopefully get some better scores tomorrow."

Senior Joe Ida is currently tied for 20th place with a 2-over par. Mitchell Gregson is one stroke behind Ida and is tied for 25th place after carding a 3-over par.
