SALEM, OR -- A hole-in-one from Morgan Hough offered a dose of excitement on a rainy opening day of the 61st Annual NAIA Men's Golf National Championships as the William Woods University squad finished the day tied for fourth. The Owls posted a team score of 298 (+10) and sit two shots behind leaders Victoria University. J.D. Nash is in a pack of six golfers tied for sixth after the opening round, with his 73 (+1) three shots off the pace.

Teams were forced to contend with spotty showers throughout the morning session, but the Owls were able to handle it better than many teams. The only blemish on Nash's team-best scorecard came on the par-5 18th as the senior picked up a double bogey to move to one over for the round.

Chris Reinert got WWU off on the right foot as he led off with an eagle on the par-5 first hole, finishing the front nine one under par. Unfortunately, he ran into trouble right after the turn, carding back-to-back double bogeys on 10 and 11, finishing the day tied for 68th with a 79 (+7).

Andrew Davis bagged the third eagle of the day for the Owls, with a three on the par-5 16th to close out at 74 (+2), good for a tie for 12th. Hough finished with a birdie on 18, but carded in the black for the day and sits tied for 27th after a 75 (+3).

Julian Taylor ran into trouble on the par-3 14th, taking a six on the hole, but back-to-back birdies on the 12th and 13th limited the impact for the freshman. He rounded out the team score with a 76 (+4) and will start the second round tied for 38th, six shots behind individual leader Nathan Anderson of Texas Wesleyan.

William Woods will open the second round in the afternoon grouping on Wednesday, teeing off from the 10th hole at 2:50 p.m. CT.
