    WAIKOLOA, Hawai'i - The University of Colorado men's golf team opened its spring season here Wednesday, starting out solid but enduring a near-collective bad patch toward the end of the round as the Buffaloes stand in 16th place after the first round of the 23rd Annual Amer Ari Invitational.

    No. 7-ranked UCLA and No. 46 TCU are tied for the lead with 11-under par scores of 277; second-ranked Texas is two back at 279, with No. 6 Washington fourth at 280 as that quartet leads nine teams which posted under par team scores. Colorado, ranked No. 66, finished the day at 7-over 295, though started off good and was 3-under through seven holes.

    Senior Derek Fribbs paced the Buffaloes Wednesday, playing a bogey-free round in recording two birdies and the rest pars in posting a 2-under 70 on the 7,074-yard, par-72 Waikoloa King's Course layout. It was the sixth subpar round of the season for CU's leader in subpar holes percentage (birdie or better for one in every five, or 66 in 324). He is tied for 14th in the medalist race.

    Senior Jason Burstyn and sophomore David Oraee are tied for 51st after both recorded 1-over 73s. Burstyn scored two birdies and 14 pars against a bogey and a double, while Oraee had two birdies, 10 pars and five bogeys along with scoring CU's lone eagle on the day, doing so on the par-5 No. 18.

    Freshman Philip Juel-Berg was cruising along at 1-under par through 10 holes, but was sidetracked by a quintuple bogey eight on the 184-yard, par-3 No. 7 hole (he started on No. 15). It was no consolation to him that the hole did play the toughest all round (+0.57 in relation to par), as he closed with four pars and three bogeys for a 7-over 79, tying him for 108th place.

    Senior Beau Schoolcraft also recorded a 7-over 79, he too struggled in the latter portion of his round. Sitting at even par through eight holes (he started on No. 16), he scored three bogeys and two doubles over the next seven holes before settling down to shoot par on the final three.

    Redshirt frosh Drew Trujillo is playing as an individual, posting a fairly steady round of three bogeys, nine pars and six bogeys for a 3-over 75; that has him tied for 78th, or ninth among the 16 players who are competing here individually.

    "Overall, we were in position to have a good round as all five guys were in it; however, counting a 79 is terrible, and that derailed a good effort from the other three guys," said head coach Roy Edwards.

    "Philip and Beau are very good players and we expect good rounds out of them tomorrow and Friday," he continued. "Derek played generally very solid and went bogey-free today on the card, which is always impressive. David was a little up and down but he is playing really well and did a lot of good things today. Jason played decent after suffering an early double with a 73 and I expect his scores will improve as well."

    TCU's Daniel Jennevret is the individual leader at 5-under 67, with nine golfers tied for second, one stroke back.

    "We expect to play a good round tomorrow and get back into a more competitive spot heading into the final round," Edwards added.

    The second round of the tournament is Thursday with the final round of the 54-hole event set for Saturday.
