The Ohio men's golf team played the opening round of the Pinehurst Invitational Sunday, where they currently sit in 13th place and are 22 over par at 306. The leader Old Dominion shot a two over with 286.
Ohio's leader is Byron Firestone, who is tied for ninth with a score of 71 and was six strokes under his closest teammate, Connor Coldwater. Firestone is also only three strokes behind the leader Nathan Kearns of Marshall. It was Firestone’s second time scoring a 71 this season, as he continues to lead the team as a senior leader for the Bobcats.
The men will play Pinehurst No. 2 on Monday, which will host the 2014 men's U.S. Open.
