JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Billy Mitchell of Roswell, Ga. leads the Timuquana Cup by three heading into Sunday's final round. The Mid-Amateur only tournament, which also has senior and super-senior flights, has been hosted at Timuquana Country Club since 2012.

Wolf, who carded 69 on Friday, was going along nicely and headed toward an even-par 72 in round two but double-bogeyed the par-three 16th.
Ben Hayes and Brad Wilder are at even-par, just a stroke behind Wolf, while Bill Sharpe and Rusty Shrawn are at one-over.
The Senior Division is being led through two rounds by 2013 U.S. Senior Amateur winner Doug Hanzel with fellow Savannah, Ga. native Jack Hall just a stroke behind. Hanzel is at four-under while Hall is at three-under.
