DURHAM, N.C. (October 1, 2011) – ETSU redshirt senior Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England) fired two-round total of 1-over-par to lead the Bucs on the first day of the Rod Myers Invitational at the Duke University Golf Club.

Duke is in second at 4-under, while Iowa is third at 5-over. Baylor is in fourth (+8), followed by Tulsa (+11), Tennessee (+17), Michigan (+19) and North Carolina (+24). ETSU (+25) is ahead of Coastal Carolina (+26) and Georgia Southern (+32) on day one.
