Not a single player saw the eighteenth green today. While the Carolinas Team had a strong opening round, the challenge matches are far from over considering tomorrow’s competition offers up twice as many points as today. With eight singles matches to round out the event, the Carolinas team needs to win at least two points to retain the trophy and hold the title for the fifth year in a row. The head-to-head competition will be fierce tomorrow and tee times will start at 8:00 a.m.
