PALM BEACH, FL - Former Middle Tennessee All-American golfer Jason Millard completed his second round today in his first-ever PGA Tour event at the Honda Classic. Millard had rounds of 71-71 at the PGA National Golf Club (par 70) to miss the projected cut by just two strokes.

The first Blue Raider to compete in a PGA event since 1982, Millard showed he belonged on the elite stage by staying in the thick of it all week. He had an eagle and three birdies in round one and followed with two birdies and 13 pars in round two.

"We are certainly proud of Jason's effort on a difficult golf course this week," said MT Head Coach Whit Turnbow. "There were a lot of chants of "Go Blue Raiders" from the crowd which is a testament to where our program is headed.

"He is a great representative of our University and golf program, just like all of the former players that have competed for the Blue Raiders. Whether they play for a living or not, we strive to produce great golfers and even better husbands, fathers, and citizens."

Millard, who had a 12-hole stretch on Friday he played in 1-under par, went through the tough Bear Trap (15-17) at even par for the two rounds. For the week, he hit 14 of 28 fairways and 20 of 36 greens while putting beautifully with 1.65 putts per green to rank 14th in the field.
