Palm Desert, Calif. - The Nebraska men's golf team is tied for seventh after shooting an 8-over-par 296 in the opening round of the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate on Friday.

The Huskers trail leader TCU by 19 strokes with 36 holes to play. St. Mary's, San Francisco and Texas Tech and tied for second at 284 strokes. TCU's Julien Brun and Texas Tech's Clement Sordet are tied for first individually after each carding 4-under-par 68s in the first round.

Freshman Kolton Lapa led Nebraska with a 1-over-par 73 on Friday. Lapa birdied Holes 9, 10, and 14, but bogeyed Nos. 6 through 8 as well as 11. He is tied for 24th, seeking his fifth top-25 finish in six stroke play events this season.

Seniors Kevin Gillick and Jordan Reinertson are tied for 36th after 18 holes. The pair matched 74s in the first round and trails the leaders by six strokes. Gillick birdied Nos. 11 and 14 but bogeyed Nos. 6 and 7, adding a double bogey on the 12th. Reinertson also doubled No. 12, but made four birdies and four bogeys for his 2-over-par total.
