Two players are tied for 3rd place two strokes back at 69 are Richard Reed and Michael Hammett. Rounding out the top 5 spots are Lee Gladden, Justin Elliott, and Ben Snow at even par. The weather conditions were absolutely beautiful and the course conditions were better than expected. Frank Ogletree and his staff did an excellent job of getting the course in great condition after 7 inches of rain in the last 36 hours. The starting times were delayed to allow the course to drain and be prepared to its best condition.
