BRYAN, TX (April 2, 2017) -- Inclement weather forced the cancellation of the Aggie Invitational final round and as a result No. 7 LSU is the winner. LSU put together an 11-under 36-hole first day at the Traditions Golf Club and they were able to edge out second-ranked Baylor (-10) by a stroke.

The win for LSU is their fourth of the season. They had previously won the Maui Jim Intercollegiate, David Toms Intercollegiate and The Prestige at PGA West.

In the individual race the title went to Kyle Mueller of Michigan. Mueller put together consecutive 3-under 69's on Saturday to post the winning 6-under tally.

For Mueller, a junior, the win was the second of his season after he medaled at the Windon Memorial Classic in September.

For more on what happened Saturday take a look at the first day recap below.


Seventh-ranked LSU will be the team to beat on Sunday at the Aggie Invitational. Following the 36-hole opening day on Saturday at The Traditions Club at Texas A&M the Tigers reached 11-under and they lead No. 2 Baylor (-10) by a shot.

Host No. 17 Texas A&M (+1) is third, No. 4 Oklahoma State (+4) is in fourth after a 7-under second round and No. 16 Texas (+5); North Carolina (+5) are sharing fifth.

After two rounds of competition LSU has three players residing in the top-10 of the standings.

Sam Burns and Brandon Pierce are tied for sixth at 3-under while Eric Ricard is 2-under and sharing eighth.

Pacing the field in the individual race is Kyle Mueller of Michigan. Mueller who has played in the last two U.S. Open's is 6-under and in front by a shot.

On Saturday, despite a first round triple-bogey Mueller posted consecutive rounds of 3-under 69. Besides the triple Mueller has been nearly flawless carding 11 birdies and only two bogeys.

With all that said Mueller will have to fight in the final round to maintain his lead. A talented quartet is just one shot back in a tie for second at 5-under; Cameron Champ (Texas A&M), Zachary Olsen (Oklahoma State), Cooper Dossey (Baylor) and Garrett May (Baylor).

In all 14 players are under-par and in the mix for the individual title heading into the final round.
