WINDERMERE, Fla. - The Alabama men's golf team has the opening round lead at the UCF-Isleworth Collegiate Invitational after firing a 1-under par 287 on Sunday at the par-72, 7,544-yard Isleworth Golf and Country Club.

The sixth-ranked Crimson Tide has a two-shot lead over No. 15 Indiana (289) with No. 3 Southern California (290) in third place and No. 4 Georgia and No. 29 Texas Tech tied for fourth at 6-over par 294. No. 2 Oklahoma State and No. 11 Clemson are tied for sixth place at 8-over-par 296.
