BIRMINGHAM, AL (June 7, 2017) - With 18-holes remaining at the U.S. Senior Challenge Invitational hosted by Pine Tree Country Club the 1-under lead belongs to Tim Freeh and Steve Humphrey.

Freeh moved into the lead following a second round 2-under 70 that included three birdies and a bogey. The birdies came in succession on Nos. 9-11.

Humphrey is apart of the top spot on the leaderboard after carding a 1-under 71 on day two. The day for Humphrey included four birdies, a bogey and a double-bogey. Humphrey's double-bogey came on the 14th hole but he was able to rebound with birdies on the 16th and 18th holes.

First round co-leader Joey Holley, Steve Hudson and Bev Hargraves are tied for third at even-par while in sixth it is the 1-over Richard Jeffers.


The team standings are being dominated by Alabama Team 2 and at 1-over they lead by seven shots over Alabama Team 1 (+8).

However, in golf things can change quickly and they certainly did for Holley as he carded birdies on Nos. 6, 7 and 8 to reach 2-under and the top of the leaderboard. Following the run of three birdies in four holes Holley parred his final hole of the day to sign for a four birdie, two bogey round.
