Greg Forest shot a 4-over-par 76 to pace UCF as the Golden Knights shot a 22-over-par 310 in cold and windy conditions Monday during the first round of the UCF/Rio Pinar Intercollegiate at Rio Pinar Country Club. UCF is in 12th in the field of 18 teams after one round of competition. Play was suspended by darkness before Monday's afternoon round could be completed.

Memphis carded the low round of the day with a 7-over-par 295, followed by Lamar at 296 and Ole Miss and Louisville at 297. Louisville's Derek Fathauer was one of two players to break par Monday. He shot a 2-under-par 70, while Lamar's Casey Clendenon fired a 1-under-par 71. Four players are tied at even par. Forest is tied for 29th and UCF's Chris Anderson, competing as an individual, is tied for 16th after shooting a 3-over-par 75.

A one-hour frost delay Monday morning contributed to the field's inability to complete all of the 36 scheduled holes. When play was suspended, most players had about four holes to play. The temperature was 38 degrees as play began Monday morning at 9 a.m. and warmed up to the mid 50s by early afternoon, but gusting winds kept the wind chill in the 40s most of the day.

Barring any frost Tuesday, the tournament is scheduled to resume with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. The field will complete its second round and then begin the third round with another shotgun start at approximately 10:15.
