Chaska, Minn. (June 2) - The Arizona men's golf team opened play of the 1999 NCAA Men's Golf Championships with a 15-over-par 303 and is tied with Minnesota and Illinois for 16th place. The 72-hole tournament, which is being held at the Hazeltine National Golf Club (Par-72, 7,196 yards), is led by Oklahoma State, who carded a 1-over-par 289. The Cowboys will take a three shot lead over second place Georgia (292) into the second round.

After Thursday's action, the field of 30 teams will be cut in half and the top-15 squads will advance into Friday and Saturday's third and final rounds.

Following Oklahoma State and Georgia, there is a two-way tie for third between Brigham Young and Clemson, who are at 293, while North Carolina rounds out the top-five at 294. Defending national champion UNLV is sixth with a 296 and 1999 Pac-10 and West Regional champion Arizona State is in a three-way tie for eighth at 297.

Individually, East Tennessee State's Chris Wisler fired a 4-under-par 68 and is in first place by two shots over a group of five golfers who are tied for second at 2-under-par 70. After that, there is a six-way tie for seventh at 71.

The next group, which includes Arizona's Derek Gillespie, is made up of nine golfers who are tied for 13th, four shots off the lead at even-par 72. Gillespie shot a 35 on the front nine and a 37 on the back to card his even-par round.

Following Gillespie on the leaderboard for the Cats is Scott Moore, who shot a 3-over-par 78 (39-37) and is in a 15-way tie for 48th. The rest of the Wildcat lineup includes Andy Barnes, who shot a 77 (39-38) and is tied for 78th; Cody Beyer, who is tied for 108th with a 79 (38-41) and Tim Weiss, who is tied for 119th with an 80 (39-41).
