BUCHANAN, Tenn. --- The Tennessee State men’s golf team opened fast during the first round of the Skyhawk Fall Classic. The Tigers carded a 7-under, 281, to take control of first place in the seven team field. The Tigers continued their solid play over the next 18 holes by shooting Even to remain 7-under for the tournament.
Scotty Hudson held the individual lead after the morning session with a 3-under, 69. The senior just missed wrapping up the first round at 4-under, as his lone bogey of the round came on the final hole.
Hudson opened the second round with another bogey, before bouncing back with a birdie on the following hole. Hudson closed out the second round by hitting wedge from 140 yards out to a foot of the pin for birdie.
Heading into the final day, Hudson (69-70=139) is in second place, two strokes behind the tournament leader, Austin Knight (70-67=137) of Murray State. Junior Tyler Woods (70-71=141) is in third and in the hunt for the individual title, four strokes back of Knight.
