Alabama’s Canon Claycomb, Northwestern’s John Driscoll, Ohio State’s Jackson Chandler and Middle Tennessee State’s Owen Stamper each shot 68 in the opening round to go into Wednesday with a 2 shot lead.

Defending champion Austin Fulton of Mississippi State is one of seven players who are just 2 shots back at -2 after round 1. The other former champion in the field, 2007 winner Tanner Ervin is at -1.

Round 2 will kick off at 7:30 am on Wednesday with a champion being crowned on Thursday.
