UGA golf shares lead at NCAA tourney

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Northwestern's Jonathan Bowers, Illinois' Scott Langley and North Carolina State's Matt Hill shot 2-under-par 69s to lead the individual race, while Oklahoma State and Georgia shared the team lead through Tuesday's opening medal-play round at the NCAA Division I men's golf championship.

Bowers battled showers while shooting his 69 in the morning, while Langley and Hill fought through winds and chilly temperatures in the afternoon at the 7,255-yard Inverness Club.

TCU's Tom Hoge triple-bogeyed his final hole and shot a 70 along with San Diego's Alex Ching, UCLA's Philip Francis, Tennessee's David Holmes and Washington's Nick Taylor. Only eight players in the 156-man field broke par.
