State at 595. Georgia, Georgia State and Mississippi State are tied for sixth at 599, while South Carolina is ninth at 601, and Virginia and Wake Forest are tied for 10th at 602.

Matt Kuchar (Lake Mary, Fla.) and Carlton Forrester (Gainesville, Ga.) carded 73’s and each stand in a tie for 12th at 147.
