111 of Tennessee’s best amateur golfers began play Tuesday at Hillwood Country Club knowing they would have to play solid golf to put themselves in position to be one of the 16 golfers to move on to the match play portion of the championship. Chris Barron quickly set the tone with a record setting performance. Including a birdie on the first hole, Barron proceeded to birdie every odd hole through seven en route to a four-under-par 32 on the front nine. Barron matched his front nine 32 with another four-under-par 32 on the back nine, featuring back-to-back birdies on Nos. 12-13 and Nos. 16-17.

Barron, who is playing in his first TGA event since the SunTrust Tennessee State Opein 2011, matched a Tennessee Match Play record in the opening round. Barron’s -8 64 matches the 18-hole medalist scoring record. Brendon Caballero posted a 64 in the 2014 Championship at Holston Hills.  Barron’s stellar play leaves him well in front of the field. Trevor Johnson from nearby Brentwood finds himself tied for second after a four-under-par 68, a round that included seven birdies. Matt Cooper, who played a bogey free round in the second to last pairing, also carded a 68. Rob Garland and Travis Womble are in a tie for fourth at three-under-par after shooting opening round 69s. The field will be cut to the low 16 players after the completion of the second round.

About the Tennessee Golf Association

The Tennessee Match Play Championship is one of eighteen(18) state championships that the Tennessee Golf Association conducts annually. In 1914, the Tennessee Golf Association (TGA) was organized at Memphis Country Club as an association of five private clubs. The objective of the Association, as stated in its Constitution, "shall be to promote the game of golf in Tennessee." From these small origins the TGA has become an association which now includes over 200 member clubs, courses, and organizations, comprised of over 32,000 individuals from across the state.
