WEIR SHOOTS 72 IN OPENING ROUND OF AMERICAN SKY CHAMPIONSHIP

SAN ANTONIO — Jordan Weir's even-par round of 72 highlighted the first day of the America Sky Championship for Sacramento State on Monday at The Dominion Country Club. The Hornets finished the round with a total of 304 and are in seventh place. The tournament continues with the second of three rounds on Tuesday.

Weir parred 13 of his first 14 holes with the exception being a bogey on the par-4 third hole. He dropped to even with a birdie on the par-3 15th but immediately bogeyed the the par-4 16th. After a par, he ended the round with a birdie on the par-5 18th. His total places him four strokes behind Utah Valley's Brayden Eriksen for the individual lead.

Owen Taylor ranked second on the team with a round of 76. Unlike Weir's steady performance, Taylor used a team high five birdies to help offset three bogeys and a pair of triple bogeys. His day began with a bogey on the par-4 first but he birdied Nos. 3 and 4 (both par 4) to move to1-under. His first triple came on the par-4 sixth but, again, he recovered with birdies on the par-5 seventh and ninth to make the turn at even. On the back side, he had bogeys on the par-5 11th and par-4 12th before birdying the par-4 13th. Two pars came on either side of a 7 on the par-4 16th.

Ryan Williams was tied for the team lead at the midway point of his round but finished at 77. Williams had seven pars with a birdie on the par-5 seventh and bogey on the par-4 sixth and was even after nine holes. He began the second half with a double bogey on the par-4 10th and went on to post bogeys on Nos. 12, 14 and 16 (all par 4's).

Jordan Swanson provided the final score towards the team total with a round of 79. Swanson was 1-under through five holes with the help of a birdie on the par-4 third. He then began a five-hole stretch (Nos. 6-10) that he played at 6-over. He alternated pars and bogeys for the next seven holes before ending with a birdie on No. 18.

Freshman Aaron Beverly, who is playing with a shoulder injury, shot 80 during the first round. Beverly had three birdies, six pars, seven pars and two double bogeys.

Houston Baptist received three of the top five individual scores during the round and has opened up a nine stroke lead in the team standings. The Huskies shot 282 (6-under) and are followed by Utah Valley (291), Northern Colorado (294), Southern Utah (296) and Binghamton (298) in the top five.
