Moc Golfers Ninth At Old Waverly Collegiate

Monday, April 7, 2014

The Chattanooga Mocs shot seven-over par 295 to stand in ninth-place at the Old Waverly Collegiate. The Mocs were an unofficial one-under par through 15 holes of round two which is suspended until Tuesday by darkness.

Davis Bunn (Knoxville, Tenn.) was the story over the first 18. His career-high seven birdies led a season-low 69. He’s tied for second behind Southeastern Louisiana’s Lawrence Allen minus four.

Chattanooga is four shots out of sixth and just five out of fifth after the first round. Cincinnati holds the team lead at four under (284) with South Alabama (286) in second. Florida and Ole Miss are tied for third at 289.

Wes Gosselin (73), Ewan Scott (76) and Chris Robb (77) completed the team scoring. Liam Johnston (Dumfries, Scotland) had the drop score with a 79. Unofficially, Bunn is -1 with Johnston, Gosselin and Robb each level par through 15 holes of the second round.

While the starting five is in Mississippi, four Mocs are playing as individuals at Jacksonville State’s Grub Mart Intercollegiate. The quartet torched Silver Lakes Golf Club with Zac Stolz (Sydney, Australia) leading at five-under 67.

Benni Weilguni (Langenlois, Austria) hit all 18 greens tallying a three-under par 69 and is in third. Brooks Thomas (Chattanooga) is tied for fourth at 70, while Stuart Thomas (Knoxville, Tenn.) comes in tied for 12th at 73.

Chattanooga and playing partners Memphis and South Alabama resume play at 8:30 a.m. The field completes the final 18 in a shotgun start upon completion of round two play.

Alabama has signed four straight top-rated classes in a row, but the Crimson Tide's last ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: He’s Exempt From Drunk

I love the old story about a popular Senator who, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, was asked late one evening, “Sir, what if we get bombed?” to which came the quick reply, “I’d be absolutely delighted … I can get one of my aides to drive us home afterwards.” You think of stuff like that when word comes from Kentucky that state legislator Brandon Smith was caught driving erratically ...
