March 23, 2007
GREENVILLE, S.C. - First Round Results
Duncan Stewart fired a three-under par round of 69 to lead the Jacksonville men's golf to a three-over par round of 291 and fourth place in the Furman Invitational.
The Dolphins trail tournament leader Elon by four shots after the first round. Elon shot one-under par, 287, to lead the 20-team event.
Elon's Justin Newton is tied with East Carolina's Andre Thorsen and Charleston Southern's Stuart Carrihill at four-under par in the individual competition.
"While we didn't play all that well, we're still in the hunt," said JU head coach Jim Taketa. "Duncan put together a good round today, but we're going to need everyone on firing the rest of the way."
Matt Kleinrock rounds out the team score, posting a six-over par 78 in the opening round.
The Dolphins will tee off with Samford on Saturday morning, with the first group going off at 11:50 a.m. The tournament will conclude with the final round on Sunday.
