The Flames finished the first day of the Princeton Invitational in a two-way tie for 12th place along with Rutgers in a closely contested battle as just 19 strokes separate the 14-team field after 18 holes of competition played on Saturday at the par 71, 6,390 yard Springdale Golf Club.

Columbia and Pennsylvania share the top spot on the leaderboard after the first day of competition as the two programs both carded rounds of 20-over par 304, while Villanova, George Mason and Princeton are in a three-way tie for third place after 22-over par rounds of 306.

Liberty and Rutgers finished the first day, which was shortened from 36 holes to just 18 holes due to rain, as both the Flames and the Scarlet Knights fired a 34-over par 318.

Only two players were able to find red numbers on the day as St. John's Keegan Bradley leads the field of 75 golfers after a two-under par 69, while Columbia's Chris Condello is just one shot behind him after a one-under par 70.

Andrew Turner and Peter Horstman lead the way for the Flames as both golfers finished the day with a seven-over par 78 and are tied for 27th place. Albie Powers and Jay Calvo are just three shots behind their fellow teammates as they are tied for 49th place after a 10-over par 81, while Parker McKoy is tied for 59th after an 11-over par 82.

The Flames will conclude competition in the Princeton Invitational on Sunday with a final 18 holes at the Springdale Golf Club.
