Iowa State's men's golf team continued to shine at the Stockton Regional Tuesday, ending the day tied for the lead with No. 7 Alabama at -14. After making the turn at 2-over-par, Johnson recorded an eagle on the par-4, 470-yard second hole when he lifted a shot with his sand wedge from 117 yards out onto the green and into the cup off one bounce.

Due to the forecast of rain and thunderstorms on Wednesday, the entire field will begin second round action with a shotgun start at 11:00 a.m.

Freshman Alex Shead shot his second straight even-par 71 for the Jaguars and is tied for 33rd (E), while sophomore Gustav Andersson and freshmen Laken Hinton and Olof Gunnarsson picked up a few strokes in round two.

Fishburn, who is ranked No. 37 nationally, finished the first round strong, birdying the final two holes to end the day at -1.

After the first six holes, the Cougars sat at seven-over par as a team, but managed to shoot even par over the final 12 holes. Tied for 11th, he birdied a total of four holes in the first round: 8, 13, 17 and 18.

Strafaci is individually placed in ninth on the leader board with a five under par score, with Norton and Ogletree both tied with a group of others at three under which is good enough for fourteenth place. Augusta's Broc Everett, after carding a 66 Tuesday, is alone in third place at 133 (-9).

"We are still in the game, but we did not start out well", BYU head coach Bruce Brockbank said.

The top five teams and the top individual finisher not on an advancing team will move on to the NCAA Men's Golf National Championship, which will be played at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla., on May 25-30. (The Reserve at Spanos Park; LSU, top seed).
