CASTLE ROCK, Colorado (May 30, 2013) -- Round two of the 2013 Charlie Coe Invitational is in the books after a challenging day of competition at Castle Pines Golf Club in Castle Rock, Colorado.
Although the sun was a welcome sight after a day of storms and hail in round one, the gentle breeze of the morning turned into a full out gale by mid-afternoon. With winds gusting to over 30 mph, the golf course became the great equalizer and the final round will be a test for those teams in the hunt.
In the Mid-Am division, first round leaders Jeff Knox and Tripp Kuhlke, both of Augusta, GA, posted a one under 71 to retain the lead at 137 (7-under). Right on their heels are Brooks Ratzlaff, of Wichita Falls, TX, and Tyler Leon, of Ft. Worth, TX, at 138 and Craig Hurlbert of The Woodlands, TX, and partner Shane Heise of Spring, TX, at 139. Three teams are tied at 140.
In the Senior division, first round leaders Jim Crane and Hunter Nelson, both of Houston, TX, kept their feet on the pedal by posting a second round two-under par 70 for a nine under 135. In second place at 138 is the team of and Rick George of Denver, CO, and Paul Schlachter of Bridgeville, PA, followed by Jay Pumphrey of Georgetown, TX, and Dave Clement of Evansville, IN, at 140.
The third and final round of the 2013 Charlie Coe Invitational is all set for Friday, May 31st, with an 8:00 am shotgun start.
