Jones Invitational nightmare for McBride

The Island's Paul McBride had one of those days you'd rather forget in the Jones Cup Invitational in Georgia.

The talented Wake Forest star signed for a 14 over 86 in the second round to slip to tied 77th in the prestigious strokeplay event at Ocean Forest Golf Club on Sea Island.


That Cincinnati's Will Grimmer, Canadian Blair Hamilton and Texan Beau Hossler lead by three shots from the field on level par after two rounds says it all about the scoring.

British Amateur winner Romain Langasque is nine over.
