FINAL GOLFWORLD TOP 25 POLL


ALPHARETTA, Ga.--The Chattanooga men’s golf team battled the difficult Lakeside Course at The Golf Club of Georgia to a team score of 11-over par 299, and is in 11th place following the first day of play at the NCAA East Regional.

Sophomore Jonathan Hodge led the Mocs with a 1-under par 71. The Southern Conference Player of the Year is one of 14 players in the 141-player field on the happy side of par and is tied for eighth.

Freshman Fredrik Qvicker continued his strong play of late, posting a 73 and is in a 12-player log jam in 23rd place. Mitch Brock carded a 77, while Bryce Ledford and Derek Rende each shot 78.

“I am relatively happy with our play today” said Chattanooga head coach Mark Guhne. “This is a very difficult golf course. Jon and Freddy played very well today. The course was getting harder as the day went on as the winds picked up and yesterday’s rain dried off. I think going early tomorrow and starting on No. 10 will be good for us. We didn’t hurt our chances today and a good round tomorrow will put us in a very good position.”

The Mocs are 15 strokes behind host Georgia Tech, who was 4-under par on their home course. UTC is two strokes behind Penn State for 10th place, but only five out of the sixth spot. The top 10 teams after Saturday’s final round will advance to the NCAA Championships played in Williamsburg, Va. May 30-June 2.

Chattanooga will play with Central Florida and UAB for the second consecutive day with tee-times beginning at 8:35 a.m. from the 10th tee.
