The day began with clear skies, but quickly turned dark. Severe weather moved into the Wichita area on Thursday morning, forcing a 4-hour rain delay around 11 AM. Sixty-seven golfers, including Derby native, Woody Austin were affected by the delay. Many of the players were unable to finish out the 1st round due to darkness. They'll resume play 7 AM on Friday morning.

The early group finished well ahead of the pack. Former WSU All-American, Dustin Garza struggled on Thursday. He had six bogey's and a double-bogey, despite four birdies in the 1st Round. Garza finished the round at +4, near the bottom of the field.

Scottsdale, Arizona native, Roger Tambellini had a magnificent 1st round shooting a -7, 64, with 8-birdies.
