"Columbus Country Club is one of the best golf courses we have ever played," said BC Head Coach Brian Farrer. "Playing 36 out there today was definitely a treat. It was an up-and-down day, and we will be looking for more of a structured game plan and better execution tomorrow. Ryan really carried us today and Tommy's low rounds were key, too."
