SAN ANTONIO — Led by a five-over-par showing from sophomore J.J. Lindsey, the UTSA men’s golf team is in sixth place after the first two rounds of the UTSA Oak Hills Invitational.

Lindsey, a native of Adkins, opened the Roadrunners’ first of two home tournaments by covering the 6,765-yard, par-71 Oak Hills Country Club layout in one-over 72 that was highlighted by four birdies. The sophomore registered three more birdies as part of a 75 in the afternoon round and is tied for 13th at five-over 147.

The Roadrunners carded a 301-300—601 and are in sixth place with 18 holes remaining, one shot behind East Carolina (310-290—600) and one ahead of Tulsa (312-290—602). No. 13 and defending champion Oklahoma holds the 36-hole lead after turning in a 294-285—579, followed closely by No. 30 Baylor (287-293—580), North Texas (589) and Louisiana-Lafayette (594).

Garrison Lackey posted UTSA’s second best 36-hole total of the day with a seven-over 74-75—149 and is tied for 22nd. The junior from Weslaco wrote down four birdies and an eagle on the par-five 10th in the second round.

Bryce Alley is tied for 37th (79-73—152), Ryan Werre is tied for 41st (75-78—153) and Brett Hogan is tied for 69th (79-78—157) to round out the UTSA lineup.

Meanwhile, a pair of Roadrunners is playing as individuals. Reed Stegall, a junior from San Angelo, is tied for 31st after posting a 151 that included the school’s low round of the day, an even-par 71 in the first. Kyle Francis, a freshman from San Antonio Reagan, is tied for 41st with a 76-77—153.

Baylor’s Kyle Jones (69-71), the defending medalist, and Oklahoma’s Michael Schoolcraft (71-69) are tied for the individual lead at two-under 140.

Round three has been changed to a 9:30 a.m. shotgun start due to inclement weather in Tuesday's forecast.
