SIGNAL MOUNTAIN, Tenn. (May 16, 2015) -- Chattanooga resident Taylor Lewis has played Signal Mountain Golf and Country Club too many times to count.

Recent Georgia Tech graduate Drew Czuchry has played the mountain course three times. Two rounds counted.

The veteran Chattanooga golfer and the newcomer from Auburn, Ga., are tied for the lead at 8- under- par 134 heading into the final round of the 2015 Signal Mountain Invitational.

"In my practice round on Thursday I enjoyed the front nine, and then the holes started going up and down," Czuchry said during a break from putting practice after he shot a 5-under 66 Saturday on the par-71 layout.

"It's a fun little track," he said. "There are some funky little spots where you have to know where to hit it. You can make a lot of birdies up here, but you can make bogeys, too, if you hit it in the wrong spots."

Lewis shot a bogey-free 67. He and Czuchry lead University of Tennessee at Chattanooga rising junior Brooks Thomas by one stroke with one round to play.
