September 28, 2004 · MT Media Relations
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee junior Josh Nelms, who had a career-best round of 67 on Monday, finished even par to tie for 15th overall at the Mason Rudolph Golf Championship on Tuesday. The Blue Raiders had a 54-hole total of 887 on the Vanderbilt Legends Golf Club course to place 15th.

Georgia State blistered the course to win by 21 strokes over host Vanderbilt with an 831. Alabama was third, while Florida State, Mississippi and UAB tied for fourth.

"We really struggled today from top to bottom," Head Coach Johnny Moore said. "It was a little windy but it did not seem to bother the rest of the field like it did us. We are simply making too many mental errors right now."

Nelms finished with a 213 after posting a round of 75 on Tuesday, while teammate Nick Bailes tied for 55th with a 222.

Blake Bivens tied for 62nd with a 225, while Patrick McLennan had a 232 to tie for 72nd.

Kenny Green completed the scoring with a 235 to place 75th.

The Blue Raiders will step back into action on Oct. 4-5 at the Memphis Intercollegiate.
