RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico --- The No. 7-ranked Georgia men's golf team stands second after one round of the Puerto Rico Classic at the Rio Mar Country Club River Course.
On Sunday, the Bulldogs opened with a 10-under 278 on the par-72, 6,902-yard layout. Alabama grabbed the first-round lead with a 15-under 273.
Senior Joey Garber paced the Bulldogs as he carded a 5-under 67. Garber is second individually, a lone shot behind Purdue's Adam Schenk. Sophomore Lee McCoy and freshman Greyson Sigg each signed for a 2-under 70 and they are 10th. Senior Keith Mitchell added a 1-under 71 to stand 17th. Senior Michael Cromie had the Bulldogs' non-counting score of 2-over 74.
"We don't have any complaints about this round at all," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "Ten-under is a solid score and we're right in the thick of things. We just need to keep it going the next couple of days."
The Puerto Rico Classic will continue on Monday and will conclude on Tuesday. There will be 8 a.m. shotgun starts each day and live results can be found here.
