The BYU men’s golf team is in third place after the first round of the NCAA Stanford Regional with a score of 278 (-2).

Patrick Fishburn and CJ Lee led the team, shooting under par and earning a pair of 67s.

Both Fishburn and Lee shot -3 after they birdied four holes. Fishburn played bogey-free on the front nine and Lee made eagle on the par-4 ninth hole. They are tied for third place individually.

“Today was a good start for our team,” said BYU coach Bruce Brockbank. “But, there is plenty of golf to play and there are many great teams in this regional. I am so proud of CJ (Lee) for stepping up again for the team. It was such a boost to have him shooting in the 60s. Patrick (Fishburn) also played really solid today. It’s fun to watch him lead the team.”

Spencer Dunaway started the round strong, shooting -1 on the front nine and then finished with a 38 on the back nine.

Peter Kuest carded a pair of 36s on the front and back nine. Dunaway and Kuest are tied for 34th place with a score of +2.

Rhett Rasmussen shot +5 in the first round and is tied for 54th placed.

BYU men’s golf will begin round two of the NCAA Stanford Regional on Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. PDT at Stanford Golf Course.

Stanford Golf Course is the site where the 1981 BYU men’s golf team won the NCAA Championship.
