However, the Chanticleers could not overcome its two-day deficit, were not able to move up the leaderboard and placed 10th with a 54-hole score of 859 at the par-72, 7,154-yard Watson Course at Reunion Resort. The top golfer that's not part of a qualifying team will also advance to the NCAA Championships, and only SMU's McClure Meissner (-2) is ahead of Fishburn among players that aren't on one of the five top teams.

The top five teams at the end of the tournament advance to the NCAA Championships and Augusta is five shots out of fifth place.

At the moment, the Eagles are in 30th place in team competition. Two of the birdies came on par 4s. Charles Huntzinger closed his season with a 2-over 73 and finished in a tie for 28th.

After the first round of the 2018 NCAA Division III Golf Championship, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Ryan Isaacson is tied for second place overall.

The redshirt junior played at 1 over par across his last 13 holes after starting 5 over through the first five.

Dossey tied for seventh in par-4 scoring at 1-under 3.97, while May tied for 12 at even-par 4.00.

Austen Christiansen and Levi Valdez each finished with a 4-over-par 76.

"This team doesn't know how to quit - it's unbelievable", MSU head coach Casey Lubahn said. He finished with a 3-over-par 74.

With two rounds still to play, expect a lot of change along the leaderboard. He has a 70.20 stroke average across 10 NCAA Tournament rounds, which is 1.43 strokes better than his 71.63 stroke average in 52 career rounds during regular season tournaments.

"We fought hard today in tough conditions", head coach Brandt Kieschnick said after the opening round. "Tomorrow we'll get everybody going and I think we've got a great chance to win it".
