Rhyne, Mooney compete at SAC ChampionshipApril 12, 2015
Rhyne carded a first-round 88 and finished locked in a tie with five other golfers for 37th place. Mooney finished the round in 60th, 35 strokes over par.
Because Brevard only has two golfers competing, the Tornados are not eligible for the team championship. Rhyne and Mooney, however, can compete for individual honors.
The second round of the 54-hole tournament will be played tomorrow at Sevierville Golf Club's River Course, with the final round scheduled for Tuesday.
