The Ohio University men's golf team put together a solid 36 holes of golf Monday to move into the fifth-place position after day one action at the Earl Yestingsmeier Memorial Invitational.

The Bobcats shot a combined 752 (374-378, +52) and trail fourth-place Loyola by just one stroke. Toledo leads the event with a combined total of 726 (+26).

Ohio was led on day one of competition by freshman Peyton White (Huntersville, N.C.), who recorded a combined total of 148 (72-76, +8) to sit in a tie for 13th place. White made six birdies through his first 36 holes.

Junior Thomas Leech (Pittsburgh, Pa.) - playing as an individual - matched White's score of 148 (76-72, +8). On his second round, Leech knocked in a birdie putt on No. 3 and made 16 pars on his card to move into the top-20 of the field.
