FLAGSTAFF, AZ (September 28, 2016) -- The teams of Danny Licursi / Bowen Osborn and Ben Blundell / Jordan Cook share the lead atop the Championship Flight leaderboard after round 2 of the 36th Trans-Miss Four- Ball Championship at Forest Highlands Golf Club in Flagstaff, Ariz. Both teams finished with a 36-hole total of 13-under par 129.

The Championship Flight led play this morning after the final groups finished their remaining holes of the first round. Ben Blundell and Jordan Cook, both from Oklahoma City, Okla., came out red hot and fired a front nine score of 6-under par 29. Blundell and Cook finished with a 5-under par 66, backing up their first round score for a total of 129.

The morning wave was interrupted for a brief moment, as weather was again present at the Canyon Course at Forest Highlands. Tournament officials had to suspend play at 11:58 a.m. due to dangerous situation in the immediate area; play ended up being suspended for 90 minutes with resumption at 1:30 p.m. local time.

Highlight of the day came from the team of Danny Licursi and Bowen Osborn, as they shot a sizzling score of 10-under par 61. Danny Licursi aced the 200 yard, par 3 fourth hole as steady rain was hovering over scenic Forest Highlands Golf Club for majority of the morning. Licursi, however, didn’t let that stop him as he had three birdies and the ace in a four hole stretch to help the duo cruise to top of the leaderboard.

When asked about their stellar play after the second round of play, Licursi and Osborn noted that their combined effort of not only each other, but also their playing competitors. Playing alongside Licursi and Osborn was the team of Jason Vedadi and Rob Mangini, who also played well and shot 6-under par 65. “Acing the par 3 fourth really helped us gain momentum as a team” said Licursi.

With the completion of the Championship Flight, the field has been cut to the low 17 teams. Tee times will begin at 9:00 a.m. and 9:20 a.m., off #8 and #1 tee respectively.

As a result of the suspension of play earlier in the afternoon, play for the afternoon wave, consisting of both Senior and Super Senior Division players, was again suspended by the Tournament Officials due to darkness at 6:15 p.m.

Play will commence at 7:30 a.m. local time for teams needing to finish their second round of play. The last groups of each divisions have roughly six holes remaining before Tournament Officials will cut the Senior and Super Senior Division based on the pro-rated allocation of teams in each division: Senior (17 teams and ties); and, Super Senior (14 teams and ties).

ABOUT THE Trans-Miss Four-Ball

One of three annual championships hosted each year by the historic Trans-Mississippi Golf Association. Each player must be a member of a Trans-Mississippi member club, but not necessarily the same club. Players who do not belong to a Trans-Miss member club can speak to their club's manager or board of directors to encourage them to join (dues are very reasonable and support the Trans-Miss Turf Scholarship Fund). Alternatively, entrants may make a contribution in lieu of club membership to the Turf Scholarship Fund.
