HUTCHINSON, Kan. - University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior Chris Robb played only three holes of his opening round of the men's Division I national championship tournament due to several weather delays Friday.

Robb, who grew up in Scotland, parred the first three holes on the back nine at Prairie Dunes Country Club. About half of the field never put a tee into the ground, but a couple of groups played as many as 11 holes. The competition started 40 minutes late due to lightning and endured another delay of about five hours.

Play is scheduled to resume at 8 a.m. EDT today. Robb, who advanced as an individual, could play as many as 33 holes today if weather and daylight permit. Oregon's Zach Foushee is the leader at 3 under par through six holes.
