The past 2 champions, Brad Besler and Matt Rutledge, of the Wyoming Open teed off for the 1st round of theirs tournament just after 1:45 pm Friday. Shortly after they finished their first hole, the rain and lightning came down and delayed play for around 30 minutes.
They got back to the course right before 3pm. Rutledge and Besler hit their tee shots in about the same place but Rutledge settled for par while Besler chipped in his second shot from 35 feet out for an eagle.
Besler finished the day with 2 eagles, 5 birdies and one bogey to end up 8 under. He is tied for first with Collin Pratt.
