He currently has the fourth hole to play to finish round one.

Thought on the Round: We played well today but are still not getting the most out of our rounds. We have to go deeper under par tomorrow to make a run. Guillaume Fanonnel played great today with his four-under effort
-The Warhawks will be on the course early tomorrow to wrap up the opening round at 7:30 am before the second and final round begins following the conclusion of round one.
