Buoyed by eagles from Erik Hedberg and Chris Baker late in the round, the Governors shot a 5-under 283 in the morning.

But they were burdened by 22 bogeys and three doubles in the afternoon with only 13 birdies and one eagle (Austin Kramer), leading to a 297. The Governors 580 has them tied with Presbyterian. Gardner-Webb leads the event at 12-under 564, just two strokes ahead of host Wofford and USC Upstate.

On an up-and-down day by the Governors, senior Austin Kramer leads the way, sitting in a 17th-place tie after shooting a 1-under 142 (70-72).

Junior Erik Hedberg had APSU’s best round of the day, shooting a 3-under 69 in the morning but slipped to a 76 in the afternoon for a 76. After playing his first nine morning holes at 1-over Hedberg played the second nine at 4-under, including an eagle 3 on the par 5 first-hole.

Like Hedberg was Baker, who played the morning round at even-par 72 but slipped to a 75 in the afternoon. Baker also eagled the No. 1 hole—his second to last hole.

Sophomore Justin Arens shot an even-par 72 in the morning but slipped to a 76 in the afternoon. Senior Tyler Phillips shot 75-74  (149).

Weather permitting, Tuesday’s round will begin with a shotgun started at 8:30am (CT) on the par-72, 6,648-yard layout.
