MADISON, Miss. – Ole Miss men’s golf seniors Joe David and Billy Brozovich each shot a 3-under 69 in the opening round of the BancorpSouth Intercollegiate before rain suspended play in the middle of the second round Monday here at the Reunion Golf and Country Club.

The Rebels posted a team score of 285 in the first round, which was good for a sixth-place tie.

Wichita State grabbed an early six-stroke lead over No. 20 Central Florida.  The Shockers fired a 276, led by Calvin Pearson’s 5-under 67.  Pearson is tied with Austen Moix and David Morago of Central Arkansas for the individual lead.

The second round was underway before a thunderstorm rolled through Madison, concluding play for the afternoon.  With a chance of rain tomorrow, the tournament has been shortened to 36 holes with the second round resuming at 10:00 a.m.

This is the second year in a row that a strong storm has blown through Madison to cut the event by 18 holes.

The Mississippi-native Brozovich birdied two holes in the front-nine to make up for a pair of bogeys before rolling through the back-nine with three birdies and no bogeys.  Brozovich is in seventh at the conclusion of the opening round.  Likewise, David shot an even-par through the front-nine before rolling in three birdies on the final nine to tie his teammate.

Sophomore Tom Brown birdied three holes and went over-par on just two en route to finishing at an even-par 72.

The Rebels, however, struggled in the opening holes of the second round and will have to mount a strong rally when play resumes Tuesday morning.

“I can’t really explain why we got off to such a poor start on the second round,” said Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross.  “With a shortened event, we don’t have much time to catch up.  We better dig deep tomorrow.”
