Lee Golfers Trail By 12 Strokes

Monday, April 07, 2014
The Lee men's golf team will have to make up 12 strokes if they hope to catch North Greenville (S.C.) when the final 18 holes of the Tennessee River Rumble Intercollegiate are played on Tuesday on the Tennessee National Golf Course.

North Greenville shot a sizzling 2-under 286 on Monday while the Flames had to settle for a 10-over par 298. Host Lincoln Memorial is in third (303) while Walters State (304) and Brevard (305) round out the top five in the 10-team tournament.

Josh O'neal and Mac Bradley set the pace for North Greenville.
The twosome are tied for medalist honors after posting first-round scores of 4-under 68. David Donovan of Lenoir-Rhyne is third (72) while the Flames had four players shoot 73. Taylor Davis, Hunter Vest, Matt Emery and Adam Wright are deadlocked with Logan Martin of Trevecca and Tucker MacDonald of North Greenville for the fourth position. Wright is playing in the individual competition and his score does not count in the team totals. Shea Sylvester (79) and Peyton Sliger (79) represented Lee in the team standings.

The Tennessee National course is a par-72, and plays at 7163 yards. Play was delayed early Monday, but the action is slated to begin on time on Tuesday morning.
