HOT SPRINGS, Va. - Georgia's Kevin Kisner had just shot the second-lowest round on the first day of the NCAA Championships here on Tuesday, yet he wasn't satisfied.

Kisner carded a 4-under 66 at the Homestead's Cascades Course to stand just one shot behind California's Jeff Hood in the individual race. Moreover, Kisner's round sparked the third-ranked Bulldogs to a 5-over 285, leaving them in a tie for seventh.

But rather than celebrate or look forward to the dinner buffet at the hotel, Kisner couldn't wait to get back on the driving range. He and his teammates logged about 30 minutes there until a late afternoon thunderstorm chased them.

"I just wanted to work on some things," said Kisner, a sophomore from Aiken, S.C. "I don't feel like I've been playing that well lately. I didn't hit the ball all that well today, but I putted great. I'm just trying to get my confidence up, and today certainly will help."
