PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- The TCU men's golf team got three sub-par rounds at one of the world's most famous courses and sits in second place after one round of the Carmel Cup at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The season-opening tournament features a loaded field with four top-10 teams, including No. 6 Georgia who leads TCU by two strokes after 18 holes. The Frogs, ranked 35th, shot a 354 and are tied for second place with Texas Tech.

Round of the Day
Sophomore Turner MacLean was one of two Frogs to eagle the par-5 second hole, and from there he never looked back. The Fort Worth native carded a career-best 4-under 68 and sits in second place individually.

The career-low round comes as no surprise from MacLean who had a great summer and played in his first U.S. Amateur just three weeks ago.

Other Notables
- Senior Chelso Barrett, an All-America Honorable Mention pick a year ago, birdied three of his last eight hole to surge to a 3-under 69 that has him in fifth place. The round was the 20th sub-70 round of Barrett's career.

- SophomoreDaniel Gurtner also posted a sub-par round with a 1-under 71, thanks in large part to an eagle on the par-5 second.

- Sophomore Stefano Mazzoli nearly gave TCU four sub-par rounds, but a double-bogey on the famous 18th hole pushed him to an even-par 72.

- The Carmel Cup allows teams an extra player in their lineup, so all teams are playing with six golfers with the top five scores from each round counting toward the team score.
