ATHENS, Ga. -- Unlike the Nationwide Tour pros who arrived in Athens this week to compete in the Stadion Classic at UGA, Nicholas Reach’s only priority is not his golf game.

This is final exam week at Georgia and Reach has two exams to take Wednesday -- the day before he’ll tee off as one of two amateurs in the tournament field. It’s a situation that he believes will be both good and bad.

“I think it kind of gets my mind off of golf a little bit, if that makes sense, during the week,” said Reach, a freshman who earned a sponsor’s exemption to compete in the tournament by ranking as one of the top two players on Georgia’s golf team along with sophomore Brian Carter. “But at the same time, you only get this opportunity once a year that the pros are in, so you want to be out there and have fun -- even if you’re not practicing, just being out there around those guys and learning as much as you can. And you’re also grinding in the classroom along with grinding in practice rounds and after the round and before the round.
