PALM CITY, Fla. (Nov 15, 2014) — Scores were lower on Saturday at Floridian as two players as two players who entered the second round three or more shots back of the lead are now sharing a two-shot advantage with 18 holes to play at the Crane Cup.

The 2012 champion Patrick Christovich (right), as well as 2013 U.S. Mid-Amateur champion Mike McCoy are three-under through 36 holes and lead by two over two first-round co-leaders, Jamie Miller and Skip Berkmeyer.

Defending champion Colby Harwell bounced back from an opening-round 74 with a 69 on Saturday. He is just four shots back in a tie for eighth place.

In the senior division, Rick Woulfe (left) put a 69 up on the board for the second straight day and he will take a one-shot lead over Doug Hanzel into the final round.
