Some local golfers thought the course played great. Others believed that the course was almost unfair.

Somewhere in between is the truth, as day one of the Spirit of America Golf Tournament teed off Thursday at Burningtree Country Club in Decatur.
Florence native and UNA golfer Michael Peter would finish with a 73, good enough for two over on the day. His UNA teammate and Russellville native Will Bragwell had an up and down day, but solid on the back nine.

Bragwell had two birdies on two of the last three holes to finish at one over.

"They were quick, but they weren't unfair, eighteen might have been a little unfair,” Michael Peter said after his round. “The greens was a little fast uphill, it wasn't too bad,” Will Bragwell added Thursday. “You had to hit them and make uphill putts but I think I made many one putts that capped my round off for the day.”

Round Two is set for Friday.
