NORMAN, Okla. -- The 13th-ranked Oklahoma men's golf team struggled during the first round of the competitive Puerto Rico Classic, posting a 295 (+7) to sit in a tie for 11th place. The tournament is being played at the 6,092-yard, par-72 River Course at the Rio Mar Beach Resort and Spa in Rio Grande, P.R.

The 15-team field features 11 ranked in the top 50 of the latest Golfweek/Sagarin poll, including five that are within the top 15.

No. 1 Alabama holds the lead with a 273 (-15), while No. 4 Georgia Tech and No. 6 Georgia share second place with 10-under 278s. No. 43 Purdue and Michigan round out the top five with scores of 281 (-7) and 285 (-3), respectively. The Sooners are tied with No. 48 North Carolina.

OU head coach Ryan Hybl said he hopes the team recovers from the rough round over the final two days of the event.

"I am looking to see how we respond the rest of the way," Hybl said. "We played terrible today, but we have a huge opportunity in front of us."

Beau Titsworth led the Sooners on Sunday with a 1-under-par 71, placing him in a tie for 17th place. The sophomore, who started on hole No. 9, birdied holes No. 5, 11, 13 and 14.

With 2-over 74s, freshman Max McGreevy and junior Charlie Saxon share 42nd place. Both pocketed two birdies during the first 18 holes of the event.

Junior Michael Gellerman carded a first-round 76 (+5) to finish the day in a tie for 61st place, while senior Michael Schoolcraft shot a 7-over 78 to sit in 68th place.

Round two of the Puerto Rico Classic is slated to begin at 7 a.m. CT Monday with a shotgun start. Live stats (updated every three holes) will be available at GolfStat.com.
