May 14, 2009

DALY CITY, Calif. - Sophomore Nick Delio carded an opening round 76 and is tied for 60th-place after the first round of the NCAA West Regional at Lake Merced Golf Club in Daly City, Calif.

Delio, a sophomore from Valencia, finished the front nine at three over-par 39 with six pars and three bogeys. He then shot even par over the first four holes on the back nine before posting his first birdie on the par-five 14th. But bogeys on two of the final four holes left him at one over for the back nine (37) and four over for the round.

Delio is tied with six other golfers at (+4) 76 and trails leader Matthew Giles of USC by 11 shots heading into Friday's second round. Giles fired an opening round 65 and leads the tournament by one shot.

Delio is scheduled to tee off at 8:40 a.m. on Friday on the 10th hole at Lake Merced.
