Moc Golfers Tied For 2nd at SoCon Championships

Monday, April 23, 2018
It was a cold, miserable, soggy day at Pinehurst No. 9 for the second round of the Southern Conference Men’s Golf Championships. It showed for the Chattanooga Mocs as they dropped into a tie for second with ETSU at 594.

“We got off to a great start over the first three or four holes and I thought this could be a really good day,” Coach Mark Guhne began. “Then we started to give a few back and could never get it turned around.”

Junior Lake Johnson was low man for the Mocs with a 2-over 74.
Luke Long carded 75, while Andrew Weathers had 77 and Will Porter 78. Etienne Brault’s 81 was the drop score.

The group started the day two ahead of the Bucs. They turned in 304 as ETSU shot 302 paired together behind UNCG and Furman. That duo got off to an earlier start and made the most of a few drier holes shooting 285 and 294, respectively.

That gives the Spartans (582) a 12-stroke advantage over the Mocs and Bucs with the Paladins a shot back in fourth at 595. Mercer is fifth at 613 followed by Samford (615), Western Carolina (627) and Wofford (643). The quartet of Josh Stockwell (UNCG), Nick Lyerly (UNCG), Keller Harper (Furman) and Bryce Hendrix (UNCG) are tied for the individual lead a 1 under.

“Greensboro had a fantastic day, and they’re going to be tough to catch tomorrow,” Guhne added. “Anything’s possible with golf. The long birdie putt by Will on the last hole put a smile on everybody’s face. It moved us into the final pairing. 

“That’s one thing about this group. We may have bad days, but we never quit fighting.”

Refuting Racism

In an opinion piece, 5/18/18, Rev. Josh Woodrow referred to me and my fellow School Board member, Joe Smith, as racists and white supremacists because we spoke out against busing. I have never met or spoken with Rev. Woodrow so he knows nothing about me. The reverend obviously knows nothing about Joe Smith either. Seems one of the reverend’s hobbies is “brewing beer”. Maybe, ... (click for more)
