SPARTANBURG, SC – Junior Callum McGuigan stands at three-under-par and Francis Marion University occupies 10th place as rain interrupted play during the first round of the Wofford College Invitational Golf Tournament on Monday (April 3).

With play suspended for Monday, the tournament has been shortened to 36 holes.  First-round play will resume at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday for players to finish the first 18. The staff will then repair the course and change hole locations with the second and final round starting at around noon.  The event is being played on the 6,648-yard, par 72 Country Club of Spartanburg course.

Most golfers had between one and four holes left to play when weather intervened.

As round one was not completed, all scores are unofficial.

George Mason University leads the team standings at seven-under-par, followed by Appalachian State University (-6), Radford University (-2), North Dakota State University (-1), and Gardner-Webb University (E) to round out the top five.

Francis Marion stands at three-over-par, only 10 shots out of the lead and three from the Top five.

McGuigan is tied for fifth in the players' standings at three-under-par.  His round began on the ninth hole and included birdies on holes No.9, 11, 15, and 17 before he dropped a stroke by bogeying No.3.  He has holes No.6, 7, and 8 left to finish.

Junior Marc Casullo sits in a tie for 28th position at one-over-par, while sophomore Lars Sandvoll is tied for 39th at +2, and both junior Alessandro Caselli and freshman Mark Goodall are among a group tied for 43rd at +3.
