HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — First-round play Friday in the NCAA Men's Golf Championship was delayed three times for more than eight hours because of rain and finally suspended for the day.

With half the field yet to start play at Prairie Dunes, Oregon topped the leaderboard at 3 under. The Ducks' Zach Foushee was the individual leader at 3 under through six holes.

The teams will play 54 holes of stroke play to qualify for the eight-team championship playoff, which will be conducted in a match-play format. Those eight will be whittled down to two Tuesday for the title match Wednesday. The individual title will be decided Monday after 72 holes of stroke play.
