Rawls/Redferns lead Texas Father-Son
(Kerrville, TX) Another day of blue skies and absolutely ideal scoring conditions allowed for teams to make their way up the leader board during round two of the 2012 Father-Son Championship. Kerrville’s Club at Comanche Trace has provided the field with a formidable layout even though teams have taken advantage of “moving day”. Each flight will head into tomorrow’s final round with teams battling it out either tied or one stroke behind among their respective leaders.

The morning wave consisted of the four net four-ball flights. In the Hogan flight, the Cliftons and Houstons will head into the final round tied with a two-day total of 125. The Cliftons recorded ten birdies, one eagle and two bogeys en route to a second round 10- under par 62. The Houstons registered nine birdies, one eagle and one bogey for their 10- under 62. Each team posted identical 63-62 rounds heading into tomorrow. The Nelson flight has two teams vying for the top position with the Scullys narrowly ahead of the Maurers. The Scullys played lights out golf in the second round on their way to a 15-under par 57. Their two-day total of 63-57—120 is one stroke ahead of the Maurers 61-60—121.

There are two teams tied at 125 heading into the final round in the Crenshaw flight. The Fowlers and Millers shot matching 60-65 rounds. They hold a two stroke lead over the Summers. The Kite flight will also see a hotly contested final round with the Wests one stroke in front of the Hills. The Wests recorded the low round of the net four-ball scores with a 16-under par 56. Their two-day total of 61-56—117 narrowly leads the Wests 58-60—118.

The afternoon wave saw the Championship flight, which used the gross four-ball scoring method, finish the second round with two teams tied at 13-under par 131. The duo of the Rawls and Redferns each recorded second round scores of 8-under par 64. The Rawls made five birdies, two eagles and one bogey during their round. The eagles came on the par five 7th and the par four 11th holes. The Redferns had nine birdies and one bogey. The Gills, three-time champions, and Starks both sit one shot back at 12-under par 132.

The format will continue for the net four-ball flights for the final round, whereas the Championship flight will be split into two fields. Those that shot 5-under par after their first two rounds will play their final round using a combined gross score format. The remaining teams in the Championship flight will be paired into the Presidents flight and continue the gross four-ball format.
