KAHUKU, Haw.- -

The Oregon State men's golf team is in seventh place after the first round of the Turtle Bay Intercollegiate at the par-72 Links at Turtle Bay Resort. The Beavers fired a team total of 295.

'We didn't take advantage of the golf course today,' said OSU head coach Brian Watts.

'We had a slow start and as the wind gradually picked up we just didn't manage the ball and made some mental mistakes.'

UNLV sits atop the team leaderboard with a 2-under 286, closely followed by Central Oklahoma and UC-Riverside, each one stroke behind.

UC-Riverside's Brendan Steele posted the low round of the day with a 5-under 67 and holds the individual lead.

Individual scores were not available as of 11 p.m. PST and will be posted as they are received.

'We're only nine shots out of the lead, so we'll just need to play well tomorrow to get into the final group for Wednesday,' added Watts.The second round begins Tuesday morning from the shorter Fazio course.
