The Musselman Family led the charge for the Tigers, as Cooper Musselman and his father, Chester, took the course one right after the other this morning. Cooper has his dad by one stroke through 18 holes.
Both Allen Hamilton and Former Tiger Paxton Duff shot under par on the back nine (they started on hole 10), but they found the front nine rather difficult.
