Quotes
Junior Scotty Hudson
- On today's play
"It was about the toughest day I've had on a golf course in a month. However, I finished with six pars, getting up-and-down five times in that span. I fought."

Junior Rosario Falzone
- On today’s play
“Day one was a struggle. I fought some sickness throughout the day, and the hot weather didn't help. I made triple bogey on my first hole of the day, due to a bad break, but felt I grinded well for the rest of the round which gave me confidence going into round two.”

- On plan for team on Tuesday
“I think we need to just continue to follow our game plan of playing conservative. I think everyone got some unfortunate bounces today, and it can be tough to come back after making a big number. I think we all hit lots of good shots today. Hopefully we can stay patient tomorrow and maybe some putts will fall.”
