TEMPE, Ariz. --- Led by freshman Lee McCoy, the 15th-ranked Georgia men's golf team opened the NCAA's Tempe Regional with an even-par 280 on Thursday at the ASU Karsten Golf Course.

The Bulldogs and five other teams are tied for fourth place at 280, 12 shots behind third-ranked UCLA. Following 54 holes of competition, the top five teams from the regional will advance to the NCAA Championships, which will be held May 28-June 2 at the Capital City Club's Crabapple Course in Alpharetta. The Bulldogs are only two strokes out of second place heading into Friday's round.

"It was a good start for us," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "We as players and coaches always want more, but we were solid enough out of the gate. We're right in the mix. We knew this would be a tough three-day tournament, so we need to keep plugging away to keep ourselves in contention."

McCoy paced the Bulldogs on Thursday as he signed for a 2-under 68. McCoy is sixth individually, four shots behind UCLA's Pontus Widegren and Austin Peay's Dustin Korte. Senior T.J. Mitchell followed at 1-under 69, while junior Joey Garber had an even-par 70, and junior Keith Mitchell and sophomore Nicholas Reach each posted 3-over 73s.

The second round of the Tempe Regional will be played on Friday. Georgia will tee off at 11:25 a.m. with its counterparts from Duke and UCLA. Live scoring can be found at golfstat.com.
