            ROCKY FACE, Ga. (Sept. 15, 2006) - Sophomore Jordan Findlay (Fraserburgh, Scotland) fired a 3-under-par 69 to lead the ETSU men's golf team to a ninth-place standing after round one of the Carpet Capital Collegiate Friday at the Farm Golf Club. This weekend's event marks the opening tournament of the 2006-07 season for the Bucs.

 

            Findlay is currently tied for ninth on the individual leaderboard, four strokes off the pace set by leader Darren Blair of North Carolina State. Meanwhile, on the team leaderboard, the Bucs are currently at 2-over for the event, while Alabama surged to a two-stroke lead over second-place Clemson.
