NEWTON, Kan. – The field at the Mid-South Classic is among the best in Men's Golf at the NAIA Level. Against premier competition, the Mid-America Christian University men's golf team hit the links at Sand Creek Station Golf Club, and in addition to the difficult field and course, the weather conditions were less than ideal.

MACU posted a team total of 316 first round, and when the wet weather, play was suspended with four holes complete in the second round. The decision was made to shrink the scheduled length of the event from 54 holes to 36, with a final decision on the second round to be made once course conditions are evaluated on Tuesday.

Oklahoma City University put up the score to beat in the first round, firing a team count of 281, and they hold a two stroke lead over Wayland Baptist University and Murray State College at 283. The University of Northwestern Ohio (289) and Johnson & Wales University (Fla.) (291) round out the top-five in the 11 team field after the first round.

MACU was led by Isaac Maston, who shot a 3-over par 75 and finished the round in a tie for 23rd individually. Tyler Price is in a tie for 44th after the first round at 78, Austin Davis shot an 81 and is currently in a tie for 52nd, Wyatt Bonds sits in a tie for 55th at 82, and Jesse Humphrey carded an 85 to round out the day.

The second round is scheduled to resume on Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m., weather permitting.
