Patriots in Fifth after First Round of ODU/OBX

With the first of three rounds in the books, the George Mason men's golf team stands in fifth place with a one-over par 285 at the 2016 ODU/OBX Intercollegiate. The Patriots are six strokes off of leader Akron (-5) and two strokes behind fourth place UNCW. The three day tournament is being held at Kilmarlic Golf Club in Powells Point, North Carolina.

Mason juniors Eric Edwards and Brock Kovach each carded one-under par 70s to lead the Patriots on the Par 71, 6,550-yard course in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Kovach birdied holes #1, 3, 5 and 16 with three bogeys and 11 pars. Edwards finished the front nine one-over par, but finished strong with all pars and two birdies on the back nine. Both finished tied for 12th overall going into round two tomorrow.

Senior Kyle Hart finished at even par for Mason. He was two-under on the front but three bogeys and one birdie on the back brought him back to even par. Trevor Tremps rounded out the scoring on day one for the Patriots with a three-over par 74.

Twenty-two players scored under par in the first round of the 18-team tournament. Three players are tied for first at four-under par, including Andrew Reynolds (La Salle), J.B. Williams (Akron) and Pablo Heredia Inglesias (Bowling Green).

The second round will be played on Monday, with tee times beginning at 8:30 a.m.
