DALLAS, Texas – The Pepperdine men’s golf team got off to a tremendous start during Sunday’s first round of the Trinity Forest Invitational, but unfortunately couldn’t maintain that momentum.

Counting each of the Waves’ four scoring players through seven holes, Pepperdine had a score of 6-under and was around the top of the leaderboard. But by the end of the day, the Waves were tied for 11th place with an 8-over 292 at the par-71 Trinity Forest Golf Club.
