HOUSTON — Freshman Ryan Werre fired a six-under-par 66 in Monday's first round to help pace the UTSA men’s golf team to eighth place after 36 holes of the Rice Intercollegiate.

Werre matched the tournament record for an opening round first set by Mississippi State's Codie Mudd in 2001 with his season-low scorecard. However, he turned in a 77 in the second 18 and is in tie for 11th place at one-under 143 after the first day, five shots behind day-one leader Gustaf Kocken of Louisiana-Monroe, who carded a 138 (72-66).

Senior Lewis Chong and sophomore Mitchell Griffin are two shots behind Werre in a tie for 20th. Chong shot 70-75=145, while Griffin posted rounds of 73 and 72. Sophomore Nicko Dodd is tied for 44th (73-75=148) and sophomore Austin Struble is tied for 53rd (75-75=150).

The Roadrunners are in eighth place after recording rounds of 282 and 297 for a 36-hole tally of 579. Florida Gulf Coast leads the team standings by three shots after registering a 566 (285-281). Wichita State is second (569) and New Mexico State is third (570).

The final round will begin at 8:15 a.m. on Tuesday.
