LAFAYETTE, La. - Battling gusty winds all day, the University of Houston Golf team stood in a tie for sixth place following the first day at Louisiana Classics at Oakbourne Country Club.

With winds constantly blowing 20-25 mph and gusting as much as 40, the Cougars posted a 36-hole score of 592 to tie with No. 14 LSU and No. 47 South Alabama on the 6,898-yard, par-72 course.

Houston, which was ranked No. 34 in the latest GolfStat.com national rankings, opened the tournament with a team score of 294 and battled the elements before finishing with a 298 in the second round.

"It was tough day out there. We didn't play very well, and the conditions played a role in that," director of golf Jonathan Dismuke said. "We made too many mistakes and compounded some errors. We are going to regroup and readdress some things and put a better foot forward."

Despite the tough start, the Cougars boasted two of the top-10 first-day leaders. Junior Curtis Reed posted back-to-back 72s to tie for seventh at even-par 144, while sophomore Roman Robledo was tied for ninth at 145 after an opening-round 70.

Roman and Curtis each had a good day. Roman played a great round in the morning. He made a lot of quality shots and made some nice par saves," Dismuke said. "Curtis played solid and consistent all day long."

Other Cougars in action were freshman Vincent Martino (151, t-38th), sophomore Kyle Pilgrim (153, t-47th) and senior Will Dusenbury (157, t-70th)

No. 20 Illinois held the first-day lead with a score of 579, seven strokes ahead of Kansas. Kent State (587), Southeastern Louisiana (589) and Tulsa (590) rounded out the top-five team leaders.

Individually, LSU's Zach Wright stood atop the leaderboard at 6-under-par 138, three strokes better than Louisiana-Lafayette's Brandt Garon and Chris Gilbert of Kansas.


UP NEXT
The tournament wraps up with the final 18 holes, starting with a shotgun start at 8 a.m., Tuesday. The Cougars' lineup and their starting holes are: Reed (7A), Martino (8A), Robledo (8B), Pilgrim (9) and Dusenbury (10).

Following the Louisiana Classics, the Cougars return to action when the compete at the Auburn Intercollegiate at Grand National Golf Club in Auburn, Ala.
