MSU Golfer Competes in Byron Nelson

Midwestern State Golf sophomore Sam Smith of Archer City competed in the HP Byron Nelson Championship Thursday in Las Colinas.

He had a good start, picking up a birdie on 11, his second hole after starting on the back nine, but then six bogeys pushed him near the back of the pack.

He finished his first day in a tie for 139th, after a +5 75.

He'll tee off Friday at 9:09 AM, again on the back nine.

Jeff Overton leads at 6-under after one round.
