Fellow junior Benni Weilguni (Langenlois, Austria) came up big for his squad after a slow start. He was plus three opening bogey-double bogey on his first two holes. He was four-over through 15 before an eagle on the par five fourth hole and birdie on the fifth got him back to a one-over 73 finish. He is tied for 13th.
Junior Davis Bunn (Knoxville, Tenn.) and senior Steven Fox (Hendersonville, Tenn.) rounded out the counting scores. Bunn shot 76 (+4), while Fox checked in at plus five, 77. Sophomore Liam Johnston (Dumfries, Scotland) had the drop score with an 80.
