HOWEY IN THE HILLS, Fla. ( - Adjusting to a severe climate change while playing in temperatures near 90 degrees in Howey in the Hills, Fla., the Green Bay men's golf got the 2011 Horizon League Championship off to a solid start Friday morning and sits in second place after an opening 312 at Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort. The 54-hole championship will continue with 18 holes on Saturday before concluding with Sunday's final round.

The Phoenix, sitting at 24-over par, are just four strokes off the pace set by first-round leader Cleveland State, who fired a 20-over par 308. Valparaiso (313, +25) and Wright State (313, +25) are tied for third place a shot back of the Phoenix while Detroit (314, +26) rounds out the top-five of the eight-team field.

Green Bay sophomore Chad Ebert (Kenosha, Wis.) led the way for Green Bay for the first 18 holes and is tied for third place after a three-over par 75 that included 13 pars and a one-over par back nine. Ebert took second place at the Horizon League Championship a season ago.

Senior Cam Fuller (Sturgeon Bay, Wis.) was a shot back of Ebert and tied for sixth overall after a four-over par 76 that included a team-high four birdies. Chris Pural (80, +8), Sam Weber (81, +9) and Austin Ehlenfeldt (82, +10) rounded out the Phoenix scores.

Cleveland State's Andrew Bailey is in first place overall and the lone player in the field under par after shooting a one-under par 71 on Friday.
