J.R. Wade Tied for 15th at Rio PinarOctober 22, 2001 · MT Media Relations
As a team, the Blue Raiders were tied for 14th with a 293-304=597 entering Tuesday's final round. Furman is the tournament leader at 562.
"We came out and had a pretty good first round considering we have never played the course," head coach Johnny Moore said. "But the second round was a different story. We made too many mental mistakes and did not play very smart. Hopefully, we will get things back on track Tuesday."
