Quest for SBC Golf Championship hits snag for Blue Raider menApril 18, 2006 · MT Media Relations
"It's very disappointing," Middle Tennessee men's golf coach Johnny Moore said. "We just didn't play well at all. Rick Cochran played well and had 17 balls in regulation. He actually played very well, but we didn't play well as a team. We just have to put some things together (Wednesday) and see what we can salvage."
After posting a career-best 69 in first-round action Monday, Chas Narramore came back with a 4-over 76 Tuesday to fall into a tie for 11th place. Cochran, on the other hand, put together a solid round and shot par to improve by five strokes from his first-round score of 77. His 149 is second on the team through two rounds.
It was an otherwise dismal day for the Blue Riders, who saw Josh Nelms shoot a 77 to give him a two-day-total 153, good for a tie for 32nd, while Spencer Provow's 80 in the second-round gives him a 153 and 48th place standing with one round remaining.
Sophomore Nick Bailes was disqualified from Tuesday's round because he failed to sign his scorecard. Middle Tennessee will tee off for the final round Wednesday.
