HATTIESBURG, Miss. (July 13, 2013) -- Casey O'Toole of Oneonta, Alabama is tied for the lead in the Magnolia Amateur.

Over the 4th of July weekend, O'Toole finished 4th in the Spirit of America Classic in Decatur, Alabama.

Play will continue Sunday in the 54-hole event, a relatively new one to the amateur golf landscape now in it's second year with a greatly improved field over the first.
