THOUGHTS FROM COACH BROWN: "The guys have been hard at work the last week and a half since Savannah in preparation for Myrtle Beach.

Everyone on the team will be competing, so this will give all of them a great chance to show where their games are at this point in the semester."
WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Tech enters play after tying for the seventh at The Invitational at Savannah Harbor two weeks ago. Giles led Tech by tying for 14th in the event, posting a 217 which included a career-low 68 in the second round.
