            JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Feb. 8, 2010) - When play was postponed due to darkness nearing the end of the second round Monday at the JU Invitational hosted by Mark McCumber at the TPC Sawgrass, the ETSU men's golf team found itself tied atop the leaderboard with No. 23 Clemson.

 

            The Buccaneers, who themselves are ranked No. 39 by Golfstat.com, and the Tigers currently stand atop the 15-team field as the teams prepare for Tuesday's resumption of play in the second round, and the conclusion of the event with third and final round action.

           

            ETSU currently has four players in the Top 10 on the individual leaderboard, led by junior Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England) and freshman Garth McGee (Bangor, Northern Ireland). Both Enoch and McGee were tied for second at 2-over-par for the tournament when play was postponed. In addition, sophomore Michael Stewart (Troon, Scotland) and senior Seamus Power (Waterford, Ireland) are playing well, with Stewart tied for seventh at 4-over, while Power is 10th at 6-over.

 

            As a team, the Bucs stand at 14-over-par along with Clemson, and both teams hold a 12-stroke advantage over No. 34-ranked Wake Forest in third place. Individually, Clemson's Corbin Mills leads at 1-over for the event.
