SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The Ohio State men’s golf team finished the first round of golf at the NCAA Central Regional in a tie for 10th place with Tulsa. The Buckeyes recorded a 7-over-par 291, putting them nine strokes behind the leader Northwestern.

Ryan Armour (Sr., Silver Lake, Ohio) leads all Buckeye golfers with an even par. With two rounds left to play Armour is still well within striking distance of the individual leader, Hunter Haas from Oklahoma, who posted a 4-under-par 67. Craig Matthew (Sr., Point Claire, Quebec) and Mike Austin (Fr., Burton, Mich) came in the clubhouse deadlocked in 41st place and two strokes behind Armour.

The top eight teams will move on to the NCAA Championship in Albuquerque, N.M. The Buckeyes have two rounds to move into at least eighth place in order to qualify for the NCAAs for the 22nd time in coach Jim Brown’s 25 year tenure at Ohio State.
