  • UNCW men's golf climbs leader board at NCAA Regional tournament

The Sam Houston State men's golf team kicked off the NCAA Norman Regional Monday, firing a 13-over-par 301 in the opening round at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club. Norton (freshman, Chico, Calif.) played his final five holes 2-under-par, and Ogletree (sophomore, Little Rock, Miss.) posted four birdies on the back nine. After making the turn at 2-over-par, Johnson recorded an eagle on the par-4, 470-yard second hole when he lifted a shot with his sand wedge from 117 yards out onto the green and into the cup off one bounce. After the round's completion, the second round will begin via a shotgun start. They are nine strokes ahead of the nearest team and the only two teams to break par. The fourth ranked Yellow Jackets are now nine shots behind surging Texas and six shots ahead of sixth place after day two of region play. The Georgia native is tied for 18th individually. Texas A&M teammates Chandler Phillips and Brandon Smith share the individual lead at 8-under 136.

The Longhorns' Scottie Scheffler fired a 6-under-par 65 Tuesday to move into a tie for fourth place at 134 (-8) with the Wolfpack's Stephen Franken, the ACC Player of the Year, who shot 69. The Bears sit at 6-under 570, 12 shots back of the lead and 17 strokes in front of the current five-team cut to advance to the NCAA Championship.
