Before this week it had been quite a while since Chris Barronplayed Hillwood Country Club. It had been even longer since he played an event as an amateur. “I had no expectations for this event. That is probably why I was able to play well the last two days,” Barron said. Play well is a bit of an understatement. Barron matched a tournament record in his first round with an eight-under-par 64. Today, Barron carded a four-under-par 68 to claim medalist honors. “I played the same way I did yesterday, aggressively smart. I just kept playing without thinking about it,” Barron said.

What the Austin Peay alum managed to do, beat a field full of the best amateurs in Tennessee by six strokes, is alarming. Perhaps nobody is more surprised than Barron himself. “This is my first competitive round in over five years. I just got my amateur status back. I had no idea how this would go,” Barron admitted. Being medalist made for a happy return to competitive golf, but has little to do with what Barron will take away from this championship. “To win medalist is awesome but to play well and play like I did is even more rewarding,” Barron said. 

Barron will exchange his six-stroke lead for the No. 1 seed as the Round of 16 matches begin Thursday. “We are all back to square one. Everyone starts on the same level tomorrow,” Barron acknowledged. Defending champion William Nottingham tied for the low round today with a six-under-par 66 to jump into second place, and the No. 2 seed.  Chase Roswall matched Nottingham’s 66 to jump into the top 16 after starting the day four strokes off the pace. The round of 16 will begin Thursday morning. The quarterfinals will follow on Thursday afternoon.
