    HUNTSVILLE, Texas - University of Houston sophomore Matt Scobie stood in a tie for fifth place Monday evening with a score of 1-under-par 141 following the first day of the Sam Houston State Harold Funston Invitational.

    Redshirt freshman Emmett Oh stood in a tie for 16th place at 145 and fired an even-par 71 in the afternoon session.

    The final round tees off with an 8:30 a.m., shotgun start Tuesday. Scobie will tee off with the first group off No. 18, while Oh will follow in the second group on the same hole.
