PINEHURST, N.C. – The opening round of play at the Pinehurst Intercollegiate presented by Gatorade was suspended by darkness Sunday evening with 23 of the 104 players still on the course, including two UNCG men’s golfers.
The start of play was delayed until the afternoon due to rain in the area. When teams finally began play off of Nos. 1 and 10 shortly after 12 noon, rain was still falling but beginning to move out of the area. However, only 81 players completed their rounds before darkness set in. UNCG’s Will Bowman has two holes left, while Ryan Heisey has three holes still to play.
UNCG’s Will Almand shot an opening round 75, while David Heyen carded a 78 and Drew Younts shot a 79 on for the Spartans on Sunday. Pete State’s Tommy McDonagh is the clubhouse leader at three-under 69, while Miami of Ohio’s Nathan Sutherland is three-under par through 16 holes.
Those 23 golfers will complete their first round on Monday morning just prior to the second round getting underway.
