LAKE MARY, Florida (January 13, 2016) -- Horses for courses? Maybe. But not for Bob Kearney. He seems to like them all.

The Houston golfer is tearing his way across Florida, and while he lost in a playoff at the Gateway Senior last week the second-best player in the 2015 AmateurGolf.com Senior Rankings (he's first so far this year of course) was coming off a win the week before at the Old Corkscrew.

Today, Kearney added a 72 to his first round 69 to post 141 and lead a trio of players at 143 -- James Starnes (Ft. Myers, Fl), John Vaccaro (Sarasota), and Mike Occi of Columbia, Maryland.

Out of that trio, the one to watch is definitely Occi -- he won the tournament in 2012 and 2014 and this course definitely suits him. But the defending champ? That would be Kearney.


Gary Strickfaden of Southern Pines, North Carolina (what a great place for a golfer to live!) has taken the the lead over Tim Miller of Venice (Florida that is) after a solid two day total of 143 on rounds of 72 and 71.

The final round of this 54-hole tournament will be played on Thursday.
