ROCKY FACE, Ga. - TCU freshman Robby Ormand carded an even-par 72 to lead the Horned Frog men's golf team on the first day of play at the Carpet Capital Collegiate in Rocky Face, Ga. As a team, the Frogs are in 17th place among the 18-team field after a 19-over score of 307.
The field contains 12 teams rated among the top 25 in the nation according to the GCAA/Bridgestone Coaches' Poll, including four of college golf's top five squads.
