DECATUR, Alabama (July 8, 2017) -- Harlan Winn, who just finished his freshman year at Birmingham's Samford University, leads the Spirit of America Classic after posting rounds of 71 and 67 at Burningtree Country Club.

Winn will need to continue keeping his eye on red numbers as he is chased by almost 20 players that are within 5 shots of his score. Right behind him at 139 after rounds of 69 and 70 is Brandon Lacasse.

Lacasse, who hails from Chateauguay, Quebec (Canada) plays for Wallace State Community College.

The low round of the day (and tournament so far) was a 65 posted by Cody O'Toole which was a full 10 shot improvement over his opening 75 and puts him in a four-way tie for third at 140.

In the team competition, Florida State has a one shot lead over Mississippi State with a total of 284 by Tyler Bakich and Jake Carter.

ABOUT THE Spirit of America

The Spirit of America Golf Classic is Burningtree Country Club's long-running, fundraising tournament held annually in conjunction with Decatur’s Spirit of America Festival, which itself is one of the largest, free Fourth of July festivals in the south. Established in 1967, this unique "college team and individual" format event has been home to collegiate players and top amateur players from across the nation. The format is 72-holes of stroke play, with a 54-hole collegiate team division. The "Spirit" tournament boasts many top graduates, like 1995 Champion-turned-PGA tour player Heath Slocum, and 1989 Junior Champion-turned-PGA tour player Stewart Cink.

Starting in 2020 the golf tournament will be a coed event. The plan is to have 30 two-woman teams and 30 two- man teams. The women’s teams will be invited and not have to pay an entry fee.
