Mocs in Seventh as Play is Suspended at NCAA Colorado Regional
Freshman Chris Robb led Chattanooga with a -2, 70, as the team shot +3, 291

ERIE, Colo.---The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's golf team is in seventh as play was suspended at the NCAA Colorado Regional at Colorado National Golf Club Thursday.  Chattanooga shot a three-over par 291 and is one stroke behind TCU in sixth.

Chris Robb (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) fired a two-under par 70 to lead the Mocs.  He tied his season high with six birdies on his round including a key stretch of four consecutive birdies on his 12th through 15th holes.

Robb got off to a slow start.  After a birdie on his third hole, he followed with a bogey and double bogey to fall to plus three.  He tallied five birdies and eight pars the rest of the way in to shoot 70.

"Chris was outstanding after a tough start," said head coach Mark Guhne.  "He played very well in difficult conditions.  It would have been easy to shoot a high number after the double on 14, but he battled and got to two under."

With temperatures in the high 30s at the start of the round, it was difficult from the start.  Wind chills never reached 40 either, but it did not completely limit scoring.

No. 1 Oklahoma State shot 12-under par 276.  The Cowboys lead No. 13 Auburn in second at 280 (-8).  No. 24 Arizona State's 282 (-6) places it in third.

Colorado State's Zahkai Brown is the individual leader at seven under through 16 holes.  OSU's Sean Einhaus is the leader in the clubhouse with a 66 (-6).

Robb is tied for seventh at minus two.  Stephan Jaeger (Munich, Germany) and Benni Weilguni (Langelois, Austria) are tied for 35th with twin rounds of 73 (+1). 

Steven Fox (Hendersonville, Tenn.) rounded out the team scoring with a three-over par 75.  Davis Bunn (Knoxville, Tenn.) had the drop score with a 77 (+5).

No. 25 Clemson is in the all important fifth spot at 289 (+1) just two shots clear of the Mocs.  Seven teams are still on the course with anywhere from one to six holes to play.

"It was a good day for us," Guhne added.  "I'm pleased overall.  Benni and Chris were great, especially for freshmen to overcome bad breaks early.  Jaeger was solid although I know he's not pleased with his round.  It's one of the reasons he is as good as he is.

"We'll come out tomorrow morning and try to keep moving forward," Guhne concluded.  "We have a lot of golf ahead of us."

The Mocs return to the course Friday morning with tee times starting at 10:30 a.m. Today's suspended round will be completed at 8 a.m., with the field re-paired for the second round.  Follow live hole-by-hole scoring via men's golf schedule page on
