JR Smith would play decent too.
He got off to a hot start, banging home a few different birdies in the early going of his round.
followed @TheRealJRSmith for the first five holes today in his first tournament as a member of the @NCATAGGIES Golf Team. Had a pair of birdies, a great chip and stuck his approach on No. 9 to within a foot from the pin. @WFMY @ncatsuaggies pic.twitter.com/s7q6rpk1pa

JR Smith wouldn’t keep his hot start going, finishing with a +7. But nonetheless, it’s impressive to see JR out there battling in golf, and taking up a new path at the age of 36-years-old.
He’s been chronicling his college experience on Twitter, and appears to be taking the whole journey in stride.
