    Looks like the Jackets have overcome a couple of early doubles to post a pretty solid first round.

    Strafaci (-3) 17
    Norton (-1) 17
    Schniederjans (-3) F
    Petefish (-3) F
    Ogletree (-1) F
    Team (-10) currently in 2nd behind UT

    Correct. Top 5 teams from each of the 6 regionals advance to national championship (72 hole stroke play, then 8 team match play).

    Looks like GT will finish the day in 2nd - there are several teams bunched up behind them ranging from -6 to -9.

    Really?
    Isn't the middle Schniederjans brother on the baseball team?

    Playing with Texas and N C State tomorrow. This is a tough and quirky course on the hilliest land in Raleigh. A wayward shot on some holes and it seems like you have fallen off a cliff. This was a very consistentnopening round.

    Things not going as well today. Through 12-15, team is -1, tied for 3rd but only 3 strokes between themselves and 9th place.

    Eh this team scoring is so volatile hole-to-hole. Already back up 5 strokes on 5th. Definitely some tight bunching for advancement. NC State playing the home course well.

    #9 Cal has dug themselves a decently sized hole in our regional as well.

    #50 UGA basically out of contention in College Station - 15 strokes back of 5th. Though they weren’t supposed to advance anyway.

    #6 LSU struggling in the Pacific. But still early in day 2.

    Also our team was billed as balanced without a superstar coming in. That’s holding true as all 5 are under par for the week so far.

    Podcast of a quick interwiew with Coach Heppler went up. Mentioned it was important we ended the day in the Top 5 (our grouping was first to the clubhouse) because of possible inclement weather - meaning they could end up cancelling round 3? Fortunately we did.

    I understand the volatility of team scoring but it's getting a little close for comfort. GT is now in 4th only 2 shots up on 6th place.

    Texas, Duke and NC State are all finished and will be in the top 5.

    Last 2 spots will be between Augusta, GT, AZ St (Liberty and Mid Tenn St extreme long shots at this point)

    Welp, we choked. Strafaci bogeyed 18 and AZ St guy birdied 18 so we're now in 6th and need Augusta to fall apart (not likely, they're having the best team round of the day).
