” He played well start to finish,” said WolfPack head coach Bill Bilton Junior, who is attending the Nationals as well. “He rolled the ball nice and hit it solid all day. We picked the wrong club on one tee shot that left us in a tough angle to the pin but all in all, a good start. He had a good practice session afterwards.”
