Cazaubon And Ortiz Battle The Wet Weather In Opening Round Of NCAA Regional

BREMERTON, Wash. - After a wet, windy, and cold day to open the NCAA Men's Golf Regional Rodolfo Cazaubon shot a 2-over par 74 and is tied for 24th place after the first 18 holes of play.  Fellow freshman Carlos Ortiz was three shots back after an opening round of 5-over par 77 and he is tied for 44th.

Cazaubon is fourth among individual players and sits five shots behind the leaders after the first 18 holes. Play was delayed for over two hours in the morning due to the wet weather.  The conditions made for high scores as only seven players were under par in the field of 75 golfers.

Cazaubon trails Kyle Peterson of Western Illinois by two strokes, Brandon Crick of Nebraska by four, and Espen Kofstad of Denver by five strokes for top individual spots.

Ortiz is in the middle of the pack overall, but seven strokes behind the top two individuals in the field.

The top two players on teams not advancing to the NCAA Championship will earn spots in the championship.

The second round continues tomorrow from the Golf Mountain Golf Club.
