Reid Davis and Winston Powell have beaten a lot of golfers over the last few years as teammates at Lamar School. Saturday, they served notice they wouldn't mind adding a few more victims to their collection.
Reid and Powell shot a 10-under par 61 to lead the Ed Lewis Memorial Day Tournament at Northwood Country Club by two strokes over two-time defending champions Scott Morgan and Judge Little.
Sixty-eight teams are competing in this year's event.
Saturday's round was played under a four-ball format.
Today's play will be scramble with Monday's final round being alternate shot.
Reid and Powell, members of Lamar's 2001 Academy Overall state champion team, had eight birdies and one eagle in their round. They birdied Nos. 1, 3, 4, and 7 on the front nine and put together consecutive birdies on Nos. 11, 12, 13, and 14 on the back nine. They added an eagle on the par-5, 489-yard, 16th hole.
Morgan and Little had birdies on Nos. 1, 4, 13, 16, 17, and 18 to go with an eagle on the par-5, 581-yard 14th hole.
Three strokes off the lead with a 7-under 64 is the team of Buddy Davis and Scott Davis. They had birdies on Nos. 1, 3, 5, 8, 12, 14, 16, and 17 to go with a bogey on No. 10.
Tied at 65 are the teams of John Rae and Jim Green and David Ray and Larry Love.
Rae and Green had an eagle on No. 14, birdies on Nos. 4, 5, 12, 16, 17, and 18, and bogeys on Nos. 3 and 6.
Ray and Love had birdies on Nos. 1, 7, 8, 11, 12, 15, and 17 to go with a bogey on No. 9.
Four teams are tied at 66. They are the tandems of Vaughn Rush-Dan Cook, Eddie Brown-J.T. Williamson, Bubba Hampton-Doyle Bryan, and Chuck Rea-Davo Larkin.
Saturday's shot of the day belonged to Terry Collier, who aced the par-3, 123-yard, 17th hole.
The 54-hole tournament will be flighted after today's round. Today's tee times will be the reverse of Saturday's Saturday morning tee times will be afternoon tee times today. Players will begin at the same hole they did Saturday and play in the same groups.
