    Senior David Oraee carries the CU flag into the NCAA Golf Championships -- and he'll have help from a friend.

    BOULDER – The best-case scenario for David Oraee would have been traveling this week to the NCAA Golf Championships with his University of Colorado teammates. Instead, Oraee has settled for a trip to the Deep South with a CU assistant coach.

    Check that. “Settled” is not the right choice of words. The trip for Oraee and Brandon White is far too special to be classified in any way as settling.

    Their time together in Bradenton, Fla., will mark the final weekend for Oraee as a CU golfer and for White as a CU assistant. Oraee is a senior, White is leaving coaching after nine years – the past two with the Buffs – to enter private business with his father.

    Video interview (~2-1/2 minutes) with Mr. Oraee- http://www.cubuffs.com/mediaPortal/player.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&id=4098392

    Live Results- http://www.golfstatresults.com/public/leaderboards/nonav.cfm?pg=player&tid=8027 (Looks like Mr. Oraee tees off at 7:00 AM MT on Friday and 12:20 PM MT Saturday.)

    Live Television- From what I could find, only the final round of the Individual Championships on Monday, June 1st is being televised, on Golf Channel, starting at 2:00 PM MT.
    (Per CU's notes for the event ( http://www.cubuffs.com/pdf9/3592008.pdf ), "After the third round of stroke play, the field will be cut to the top 15 teams (out of 30) plus the top nine individuals not associated with those 15 teams for Monday’s fourth and final round. ". So, there's no guarantee Mr. Oraee will still be playing on the broadcast day; he'll have to have to have a good 1st 3 days of golf.)

    Looks like a very solid 1st round by David, as he ends his 1st round at -1 and tied for 12th, with the leader at -5. (Actually, still 1/2 the field or so still on the course, so his position could still change, but a good round in any case.)

    cubuffs.com article on day 1 of the 4 day individual NCAA tourney- http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=210117306

    BRADENTON, Fla. — University of Colorado senior David Oraee made it through the first day of the NCAA Golf Championship Finals, as he opened with 1-under par 71 here Friday.

    Oraee, playing as an individual, is tied for 13th place, as much of the field was over par on the challenging 7,483-yard, par-72 Concession Golf Club course layout. There will be a cut following Sunday’s third round, as the top 15 teams (out of 30) and the best nine individuals not associated with those teams will advance into Monday’s final round.

    Oraee turned in one of just 11 rounds under par out of 78 played in the morning when he played (just one of those in the 60s); on the day, there were 23 under par (four in the 60s). Of the six players who qualified as individuals for the tournament, he posted Friday’s best score (tied), and of the 31 golfers from the Pac-12 Conference, only USC’s Rico Hoey (2-under 70) bested Oraee in the first round, while three others matched him.
