    Ryan Paces Flames During Round 1 of Ka’anapali Classic Collegiate

    Oct 28, 2022 | Lahaina Hawaii | Golf

    Liberty’s Josh Ryan continued his strong play and led Liberty during round one of the Ka’anapali Classic Collegiate on Friday.

    The freshman paced the Flames during their first trip around Ka‘anapali Golf Club – Royal Ka‘anapali Course (par 71, 6,700 yards) with a 6-under par 65.

    Ryan matched his season-low round and is tied for third place in the 123-man field. He is coming off a 10-under par 206 (68-72-66) at the Quail Valley Collegiate Invitational (Oct. 16-17).

    After opening with a pair of pars, Ryan carded five birdies and a bogey over his next six holes. He added two more birdies during his 11th and 12th holes of the day before closing with six-consecutive pars.

    Ryan trails clubhouse leaders Andrew Swanson of Clemson and Drew Goodman of Oklahoma by one stroke, who opened the tournament with a 7-under par 64.

    Clemson opened the tournament with a 17-under par 267 to lead all teams in the field. No. 11 Oklahoma and No. 45 East Tennessee State are one shot behind following an opening round 16-under par 268.

    As a team, Liberty is tied for 10th place following an opening round 4-under par 280.

    The 20-team field will return to the Ka‘anapali Golf Club at 8 a.m. HST, Saturday morning, to begin play during the second round of the Ka’anapali Classic Collegiate.
