Williams Four-Ball: May brothers continue to lead
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Brothers David and Mike May carded 5-under 65 to lead by a stroke after the first round, then followed that up with 68 in round two to remain in the lead at the John R. Williams Four-Ball Tournament.
David is a former Clemson golfer who turned pro but has since regained his amateur status, while Mike a current high-school senior.
The natives of Auburn, N.Y. paced the field over five teams just a stroke back at 66 through the first 18, three teams at 67, and another six teams at 68. The leaderboard didn't maintain its bunched characteristics after Friday, as half the amount of teams to break par on day one did so on day two. Only five teams have posted red numbers on both days.
Eighteen holes remain at Oak Hill Country Club's East Course, site of multiple PGA Tour major championships. Paul Gortnar and Jonathan Dunlap are still distanced by just a stroke as the duo fired 68 on Friday, as well, and hold a slight grip on second place over Canadian golfers Garrett Rank and Simon McInnis.
Rank is a two-time defending champion of the Canadian Mid-Amateur.
Rank and McInnis tied with John Hunter and Kyle Nathan for the lowest score on Friday, a 67. Hunter and Nathan jumped inside of the top-5 with their second-round score, sitting just one back of the Canadians in fourth place.
Don Padgett III and Adam Thomarios also carded 67, and at 2-under 138 are tied for ninth place five strokes back of the lead.
