The Gophers, who started on the 10th, all made it through at least 10 holes before the stoppage of play. Freshman Jose Mendez is tied for second at 4 under through 10 holes. He has made four birdies and six pars.
Georgia Tech (-14) leads the team competition. The Yellow Jackets’ Richard Werenski leads the field at 5 under with one hole to finish in the first round.
