Monday, September 17, 2012
ST. SIMONS, Ga. - A little sun apparently spelled a little fun for the Lee men's golf team in the opening two rounds of the Coastal Georgia College Invitational. After posting a 296 in Monday morning's first 18, the Flames were sizzling hot later in the day and carded a 2-under 286. The combined total of 582 is good enough for first place heading into Tuesday's final 18.

Matt Emery heads into Tuesday with an impressive 71-72 - 143 on the par 72 Sea Island Retreat Course. Hunter Vest (74-72 - 146) was second best.
Tyler Smith started with a 77, but came back with a 71 (148). Taylor Davis followed with a 74-75 - 149. After posting a 79, JB Eksteen reclaimed top form with a 71 and he stands at 150.

"We played well today, especially in the second round," said coach John Maupin. "Our seniors bounced back well after the first round. Everybody's playing solid, and I think we're ready for tomorrow."
