The professionals controlled play from the get go and after day one they hold a commanding 8-2 lead at the Senior Hudson Cup. On Friday the amateurs will have to put together an impressive rally at Fircrest Golf Club if they want to prevent the pros from winning their second consecutive title.

In the morning Foursomes the professionals took a 3.5-1.5 lead before really taking control with 4.5-.5 near sweep in the afternoon Four-Ball's.

The only amateur half point earned Thursday afternoon came from Pat O'Donnell and Denny Taylor
