Stephen Dooley is one of three Flames tied for 11th after round one of the Frank Landrey Invitational.

Fielding Brewbaker of James Madison shot a 68 in round one on Monday, to take the early lead in Liberty's fourth annual Frank Landrey Invitational, at the par-72, 7,186-yard Spring Creek Golf Club in Gordonsville, Va. All groups were unable to finish the scheduled second round due to darkness. Round two will resume at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, prior to the start of round three which is scheduled to tee off at 10 a.m.

Liberty (293) currently sits in fifth place out of 15 teams, seven strokes behind tournament leader Longwood (286). Stephen Dooley (72) is tied for 11th after shooting even in the opening round, while reigning Big South Player of the Week Tobias Pettersson (73) is tied for 21st at one over par. Jay Calvo (74) and Preston Dembowiak (74) are both two over par. Chris Watters (76) rounds out the Flame five at four over par.

The Liberty "B" team is not too far behind the "A" squad, as the second Flames squad tallied a 296 in round one, tying them with Delaware for seventh place. Jacob Singleton (72) and Jordan Frye (72) are each tied with Dooley in 11th place after shooting even in round one. Nathan Schenz-Davis (75) is three over par, while Sang Chun (77) and Manuel Moreno (77) are both five over par. The Flames also had two individuals participate in the tournament. David Je (73) is tied for 21st at one over par, while Josh Bain at this time is waiting for a ruling before his final score becomes official.

Brewbaker is contested by five other golfers who each shot a 70. Those on the heels of Brewbaker are Thomas Todd and Rob Varner of Presbyterian, Tim Courtney and Brad Miller of Richmond and Ross Sumner of Longwood.

Longwood (286) holds a narrow lead over Presbyterian (289), while Richmond (290) sits four strokes back in third place.

The Frank Landrey Invitational will conclude with the remainder of round two and the final 18 holes on Tuesday at the Spring Creek Golf Club.
