Former University of New Mexico men's golfers Doug LaBelle II (1995-98) and Michael Letzig (2000-03) both shot 8-over 78s in the opening round of the 2008 British Open today. The pair is tied for 110th overall and nine strokes off the pace set by Rocco Mediate, Graeme McDowell and Robert Allenby (1-under 69).

Letzig birdied the last two holes of his round to move to 8-under while LaBelle dropped a stroke on his 18th hole to finish with a 78. Letzig tees off at 6:41 a.m. local time (11:41 p.m. M.D.T.) for his second round while LaBelle's second round tee time is set for 10:48 a.m. local time (3:48 a.m. M.D.T.)
