THE WOODLANDS - Tommy Economou finished the first day of The Woodlands All-American Intercollegiate with a 36-hole score of 147 (+3).
Economou was the Owls' leading golfer on Monday and is currently tied for 48th. Freshman teammate Joe Beck III had back-to-back 74s on The Tournament Course at The Woodlands Country Club Monday and is one stroke back of Economou, tied for 52nd.
As a team, Rice shot a two-round 598 (+22) and is currently in 14th place. The Owls shot an opening round 301 before carding a 297 team score during afternoon play.
"We got off to one of the best starts of the year and were neck and neck with some of the premier teams in the country," said Rice golf coach Justin Emil. "The guys showed some good progress today on a tour-caliber course. Today will be something to build on."
Rice will be paired with Texas-Arlington and Lamar for Tuesday's final round. The Owls will play off the No. 10 tee starting at 9:12 a.m.
Tuesday's 18 holes will mark the final round of competition for the Owls before playing in the Conference USA Championship at the end of the month.
Also at The Woodlands Country Club on Monday, 10th-ranked Arkansas was 20-under par for the tournament and heads into Tuesday morning's final round with a four-stroke lead. Led by Sebastian Cappelen, the Razorbacks shot a 280-276 for a 556 team score. Chasing the Hogs are No. 32 North Texas (560), No. 14 Texas A&M (562) and No. 44 SMU (571).
Cappelen tied an 18-hole record for the All-American Intercollegiate, becoming just the seventh player to shoot a round of 65 and the first since 1993. Cappelan's 65 on Monday afternoon came after he carded a 74 earlier in the day. Cappelen is currently tied for fifth with a 139 (-5) two-round score.
Texas A&M's Geoff Shaw fired back-to-back rounds in the 60s and with an eight-under-par 136 for the day, has a one-stroke lead in the individual standings. Arkansas' Kolton Crawford shot a 68-69 for a 137.
