Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Play suspended for Round 1 at the Air Capital Classic as they plan on restarting tomorrow morning at 7:30. Still most golfers were able to get their full 18 holes in.

Aaron Wise is on top of the leaderboard after shooting an 8-under-par-62, his lowest round on the Tour this season. The-20-year-old South African missed cuts in his last two Web.com Tour starts.

“I’m playing aggressively off the tee and I think that’s giving me an advantage coming into the greens. So, I’m giving myself more chances for birdie," the former NCAA individual champion said.

Independence, Kan. native and former Jayhawk Chris Thompson is tied for ninth at 4-under-par with two holes to play in his first round as play suspended before he finished. He started on the back nine and feeds off the energy on the rowdy hole 17.

"There are a lot of Jayhawks up there and there are obviously a lot of people from Kansas too," he said. "Not too many guys from Kansas in the field, so yeah, I can feel that."

Sterling, Kan. native Michael Gellerman had a nice round. The former OU golfer finished at 1-under-par and is tied for 52.
