As the 14 Vols took part in their last active event as members of the Tennessee football program at Pro Day, they are confident the program is on the upswing.

Starting the day four shots clear of the field, Spieth began his procession with a birdie at the first to keep his nearest pursuer, Rose, four shots back after he opened with a birdie of his own.
