WAIKOLOA, Haw. - -

Senior David Yarnes led the Oregon State men's golf team with a 2-under-par 70 in the opening round of the TaylorMade/Waikoloa Intercollegiate on Wednesday at the par-72 Kings' Course.

The Beavers are tied with Houston for 13th in the field of 24 after shooting 293.

Todd Deacon carded a 36 on his final nine holes to finish with a 75 and a tie for 65th, while Chance Holmes shot 76 after going out in 34. David Williams shot 85 in his second tournament of the year.
