LAHAINA, HI (November 5, 2016) -- Georgia used a big day to move in front with one day remaining at the Ka'anapali Collegiate Classic hosted by the Ka'anapali Golf Course. The day began with the leaderboard tight but Georgia was able to reach 18-under with an 18-under-par round and open a 10-stroke advantage.

Leading the 14th ranked Bulldog attack is senior Greyson Sigg who at 9-under is tied for the medalist lead with Chase Hanna of Kansas.

Sigg, who won three-times last year, went low on Saturday with a 7-under 64. Sigg birdied three of his first four holes on his way to a 3-under side that also included two bogeys. The backside for the Georgia captain was flawless with four birdies, the circles came on Nos. 10, 11, 15 and 17.

Two other Georgia players in the top-10; junior Zach Healy (T3; -8) and freshman Spencer Ralston (T5; -6).

Kansas senior Chase Hanna is 9-under after the round of the tournament, a 10-under 61. Hanna began his round on the 6th and was 4-under after four holes thanks to a pair of birdies and an eagle on the par-5 9th. 12th and 13th hole birdies followed before he dropped his only shot of the day on the 15th. However, that blemish didn't slow Hanna for long as he rolled in five more birdies during the final eight holes of his round.

First round co-leader Doc Redman of Clemson and Haley are tied for third at 8-under while five others including 18-hole co-leader Keenan Huskey of South Carolina are tied for fifth at 6-under.

No. LSU (-8) is third, No. 9 Oklahoma (-7) is in fourth and No. 16 Clemson (-6); Kansas (-6); first round leader No. 18 South Carolina (-6) are tied for fifth.

ROUND ONE RECAP

Things are tight after the first day of the Ka'anapali Collegiate Classic but it is South Carolina pacing the field thus far. With 36-holes still to play South Carolina is 2-under and leading five other teams by no more than five-strokes.

On day one at Ka'anapali Golf Course the Gamecocks were led by co-individual leader Keenan Huskey. The junior posted a 5-under 66 in the first round thanks to a strong start and then a strong finish. Huskey began his round on No. 7 and birdied three straight from Nos. 9-11 before hitting a lull during the middle of his round.

Over the course of the next 10 holes the 2016 PING All-Southeast Regional player was 1-over before finishing with three straight birdies.

Huskey received top-20 support on Friday from teammates, sophomores Scott Stevens (T14; E) and Ryan Stachler (T20; +1).

Tied with Huskey in the individual race is Clemson freshman Doc Redman. One of the top juniors in the country Redman, who reached the second round of the 2016 U.S. Amateur match play, birdied seven times and bogeyed twice during his first round. Redman got his round started with birdies on each of first two holes.

Sam Burns of LSU and Zach Smith of UC Santa Barbara are tied for third at 3-under while four others are tied for fifth at 2-under.

1-under No. 6 LSU is in second place, No. 14 Georgia and No. 16 Clemson are tied for third at even-par while 3-over North Florida and UC Santa Barbara are tied for fifth.
