UTC Men's Golf In 15th, Chris Tied For 2nd At PING/Golfweek Preview

Sunday, September 23, 2012

ALPHARETTA, Ga. --- Junior Chris Robb (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) shot a two-under par 68 to lead the Chattanooga Mocs men’s golf team to a 15-over par 295 at the PING/Golfweek Preview. Robb’s minus two is tied for second, while UTC is 15th in a power-packed field.

Robb’s 68 was a study in consistency. He carded four birdies and 12 pars against just two bogeys. He is one shot off Tom Berry’s (San Diego State) lead.

Liam Johnston (Dumfries, Scotland) and Steven Fox (Hendersonville, Tenn.) each shot three-over par 73s. Alex Ratliff (Kingsport, Tenn.) and Kory Webb (Knoxville, Tenn.) tallied twin 81s to round out the scoring.

UNLV is the team leader at plus one (281). UCLA is second at 282, while New Mexico, Georgia Tech and San Diego State are tied for third at 287.

Monday’s second 18 starts at 9:20 a.m., for the Mocs off No. 10 again paired with Alabama and Texas A&M. Webb starts off followed by Ratliff (9:30), Johnston (9:40), Fox (9:50) and Robb (10:00). Live scoring is available via the men’s golf schedule page on GoMocs.com and you can follow on twitter (@GoMocsMGLF) for constant updates.

I’ve been sprayed by champagne in the Dallas Cowboys’ dressing room after they won the Super Bowl. I’ve stood both at the top and at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I’ve snorkeled in the Great Exuma islands, learned to snow ski in the Austrian Alps, and ... (click for more)
