LUBBOCK, Texas - The Texas Tech men's golf team was unable to finish the first round at the 2005 NCAA Men's Golf Central Regional in South Bend, Ind., due to darkness. The first round's delay, which started three hours late due to thunderstorms, left 12 teams still to finish the first round tomorrow with a 6:45 a.m. shotgun start.
The Red Raiders currently stand in a tie for third at five-over-par with fellow Big 12 competitor Missouri, who is the only team in the top six that has finished the first round, and Augusta State. The Tigers lead all finishers with a first round 285, five-over-par.
Leading the field is Tulsa at one-over followed by Oklahoma State at four-over-par.
Leading the Red Raiders is junior Andrew Dresser who currently stands in a tie for third at one-under-par for the day. Dresser is trailed by sophomore Oscar Floren who is shooting a one-over-par, tied for 14th performance.
The shotgun start tomorrow will not affect any of the second-round tee times which will begin at 7:30 a.m. The Red Raiders will begin with their No. 5 golfer with a 8:15 a.m. tee time for the second round. The last Raider will tee off at 8:51 a.m. so as to following the 11-minute interval for the tournament.
