KAHUKU, Hawaii –Coming off a much-needed winter break, the BYU men’s golf team faltered in the first round of the John H. Burns Invitational Wednesday, shooting a combined 9-over.
While the Cougars struggled as a team, Hawaii native Justin Keiley provided solid play, shooting a 2-under 70 which tied him for 15th place overall. A bogey on his first hole was the only blemish for the day.
Ben Hogan Watch List nominee Zac Blair shot a solid par, but sits seven shots behind the current leader. Blair is coming off a tournament victory at the Sand Hollow Amateur.
The team will resume play tomorrow before finishing the last round on Friday.
