Society of Seniors Spring Classic underway in Florida
PORT ST. LUCIE, Florida (Feb 15, 2016) -- In unusually cold and windy conditions brought on by the Polar Vortex, Murphy Mitchell posted a 74 to lead the first round of the Society of Seniors Spring Classic at the Santa Lucia River Club.

Mitchell, from Scottsdale, paces a stacked field that includes defending champ Mike Occi, who posted 79. Mitchell was runner-up in this event last year and is certainly showing he's looking for a win this year. He was the 21st ranked player in the 2015 AmateurGolf.com Senior Rankings, with a T4 at the Trans-Miss senior also giving him a hefty helping of rankings points.

In the Super Seniors, Frank Guise and Tom Elfers (both of Ohio) lead after also posting rounds of 74 while in the Grand Masters, it's Bob Moyers of New Market, Virginia (round of 78) with a one shot lead over 2015 Grand Masters Player-of-the-Year Claud Johnston from Ann Arbor, MI.
