NINETY SIX, S.C. – The High Point University men’s golf team concluded the first round of the Big South Championship Wednesday, April 17. The Panthers are currently tied for sixth as a team.
“You can’t have the biggest comeback in history if you’re leading after day one,” HPU head coach Brady Gregor said. “My assistant Curtis Brotherton said it best today, ‘We’re not dead yet.’ Time to go out and fight our way back and find a way to backdoor it into the match play.”
Campbell currently leads all teams, while Gardner-Webb is second.
