Fultz Fires 67, Tied For Seventh
HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. – The Tennessee State men’s golf team dealt with a tale of two rounds on Monday at the F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate. The Tigers came out fast, led by a 67 from Jermey Fultz, only to see a complete reversal in the afternoon on the Par-72, 6,841 yard, Links at Novadell.
 
TSU was tied for fifth, 11 strokes behind the leaders, after the morning session. During the second round, TSU fell off the pace, shooting 13-over as a team. The Tigers dropped to 11th with one round to play.
 
Host Austin Peay (278-280=558) leads the 12 team field at 18-under. UT Martin (284-278=562) is four strokes behind APSU and sits ahead of Eastern Kentucky (283-284=567) and Belmont (282-288=570).
 
Fultz held the top spot after the first 18-holes at 5-under and remained in the top 10 with an Even, 72. The Knoxville native is tied for 7th, three strokes behind individual leader Logan Hogge of Morehead State.
 
Fultz (67-72=139) opened the day with six consecutive pars, before recording his first birdie with a six foot putt on the par-4, 2nd. Fultz continued his assault on the course with three straight birdies beginning on the par-3, 4th. The freshman’s streak was fueled by his play on the greens as he sank putts from 20, 12 and six feet. Fultz also drained a 10-footer on 11 as he completed the first round with bogey-free golf.
 
The first-year recorded his first bogey of the day three holes into the second round, but would get the stroke back three holes later as he dropped a birdie putt from 12-feet away. Fultz closed out the day by hitting 5-iron to two feet of the pin on the par-5, 12th.
 
Fellow freshman Andy Stout carded a 2-over, 74, during the morning session with two birdies and four bogeys. Stout (74-73=147) followed up with a 1-over, 73, in round two with three birdies and four bogeys.
 
James Stepp (72-78=150) used four birdies in the morning to enter the second round at Even-par. The senior struggled to start the afternoon session before picking up birdies on par-4, 2nd, and the par-5, 9th.
 
Sophomore-transfer Todd McGill (76-80=156) scored a 4-over, 76, for the Tigers in round one, while senior Dallas Hill (84-78=162) put up a countable 6-over, 78, in round two.
 
Hill saved bogey on the par-5, 18th, with a 20-foot putt from off the green, after his tee went shot out of bounds. In the afternoon, the senior carded a birdie on No. 2 as he used a 5-iron off the tee box, setting up a wedge shot to 10-feet to cut a stroke off his second session score.
 
The final round is set to begin with a shotgun start at 9:00am on Tuesday morning.
