Alpharetta, Ga. - Virginia senior Jimmy Stanger (Tampa, Fla.) battled through windy conditions to shoot 5-under 67 and grab the first-round lead at the Golf Club of Georgia Collegiate. Virginia completed the round at 1-over 289 and was in third place. Oklahoma finished as the opening round leader at 5-under 283.
Following birdies on his eighth and ninth holes, Stanger made the turn at 1-under par and then posted four birdies and five pars during his back nine to claim the early lead.
