Tucson, AZ -

No. 3 Stanford leads the field with a three-stroke advantage over No. 4 California after the first day of the 2014 Pac-12 Championships, hosted at The Gallery Golf Club's North Course (par 72, 7,349) in Marana.

In the individual race, Patrick Rodgers of Stanford leads shooting six-under par.

Still in the second round, play was suspended for the evening. UA juniors Alex McMahon and Brenden Redfern led the Wildcats in the second round with scores of 53 (+1) through 13 and 60 (+1) through 15, respectively. Senior Erik Oja finished through 12 holes with a score of 52 (+4). Sophomore Kolton Lapa had a score of 61 (+5) through 14 holes. Senior Christian Colegrove finished 16 holes with a 69 (+5).  

"I was really happy with the way our team played," head coach Jim Anderson said. "The golf course conditions, as shown by the scores, are very difficult. Our team fought extremely hard in the first round. We knew we had to set the tone early and we accepted the challenge. It's up to us to continue this, and we know we can play with anyone here."

Round two will resume at 7 a.m. MST. Round three is expected to begin an hour after the completion of round two, approximately 10 a.m. MST.

Arizona led the team race by as many as three strokes on day one of play before being halted by inclement weather for a one hour and 27-minute delay. The Wildcats finished the day one-under par with a 287, good for a third-place standing.

No. 2 UCLA leads the team race with a three-under round of 285. No. 9 Stanford sits in second place with a two-under par score of 286. Mariko Tumangan of Stanford leads the individual race with a five-under par score of 67.
