The Mean Green men’s golf team opened play Friday in Palm Desert, California, in the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate. Friday’s performance for North Texas included shooting an opening-round 286 at the Classic Club to sit at 2-under par in fifth place out of 21 teams with two rounds to play.

Junior Viktor Forslund led the Mean Green in the first round shooting a 69, coming from four birdies and a bogey. He is currently tied for eighth place at -3. Junior Kristof Ulenaers led the team with six birdies on the day and he is tied for 20th place with a score of -1. Freshman Alejandro Madariaga shot at par is tied for No. 30.

“We had a solid start today,” head coach Brad Stracke said. “I was proud of how the guys fought through some adversity in the middle of the round.”

UP NEXT: The Mean Green will compete against Boise State and Cal State Northridge Saturday. Stay tuned for more information throughout the weekend for updates, scores and announcements in the tournament.
