PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL (April 4, 2016)--Middle Tennessee (575) leads by two heading into Tuesday's Web.com Intercollegiate final round at Marsh Landing Country Club. Middle Tennessee will be looking for their second victory of the season and first since the end of October when they won the Blue Raider Invitational.
