MORRISTOWN, TENN (July
13th, 2017) The second round of the 47thTennessee Four-Ball
Championship featured a pair of impressive scores from future college teammates
Bryce Lewis and Jake Hall who will eventually play together at Middle Tennessee
State University. On Thursday, they fed off of each other seamlessly, “We made
two eagles today, that really helped. I had one on No. 5 he had one on No. 16.
We each had three or four birdies out there as well,” Lewis explained. “When
our partner hit a bad shot we picked each other up and made at least a par.
That was a huge key today,” Hall said. The future Blue Raiders were not over
exaggerating how much they shared the load, they each contributed nine scores
apiece. While being medalist is a nice feather in the cap, the two rising high
school seniors are not done yet. “We want to win this thing,” Lewis said.
First round co-leaders Dan Crockett and PJ Smith matched their opening round eight-under-par 64 with
another 64 to claim the No. 2 seed entering match play.
Chase Roswall found
himself in a familiar position as the 2017 Tennessee Match Play Champion. In
that event Roswall needed a tremendous round just to make the bracket and went
on to win the championship. This time he had a teammate to help him climb into
the bracket portion of the championship. Spencer
Cross joined forces with Roswall to produce the round of the championship.
The future University of Tennessee teammates got off to a fast start, going
birdie, birdie, eagle through three holes. The recent high school graduates
posted the round of the tournament, -11 61 to assure themselves a spot in the
bracket as the No. 3 seed.
There will be eight
matches featuring 16 teams beginning Friday morning. The cut fell at
Tennessee Golf Association
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.
