The Club at Olde Stone is playing host to the 40th Trans-Mississippi Four-Ball Championship. Southern Kentucky must feel like a home away from home as Texans litter the leaderboards in all three divisions (mid-am, senior, super senior).

In the mid-am division, Denver, Colorado natives Richard Bradsby & Brian Dorfman got off on the right foot with an opening 6-under 66. The duo fired off a front side 5-under 31 en route to their low round.

Sitting in second and third place sits a slew of Lone Star Staters. San Antonio’s Colby Harwell & RW McDonald are two shots back of Bradsby and Dorfman after they too got off to a hot start. Opening their day with a 4-under 32, they cooled off on their final nine shooting par to stay two back.

Former U.S. Mid-Am champion Trip Kuehne (Southlake, Texas) and his partner Dan Crockett (Franklin, Tennessee) are one of two teams that are two-steppin’ in third place. They are joined by Dallas’ Robert Kupchynsky & David Richards.

Among the seniors, Texas remained a common theme. Larry Nunez (Austin, Texas) & Ron Kilby (McAllen, Texas) are tied alongside Don Dean (Austin) & Mike Lohner (Southlake) as both teams fired 4-under 68s. One shot back of them is Greg Greenbaum & Jack Larkin (Atlanta, Georgia) who had a peachy day shooting 69.

Tied for third at two under, you can find Hollis Sullivan (Westworth Village, Texas) and Jeff Dillard (Ft. Worth, Texas) as well as a team of former University of Texas golfers Ralph Ellis (Amarillo, Texas) and Todd Cornelia (Greensboro, Georgia).

Super seniors Les Devitt (Concord, Massachusetts) and Charles Yandell (Cashiers, North Carolina) took the round one lead on Tuesday with a 1-under 71. Two shots back of them at one over par is the team of Doug Hopton-Jones (Mansfield, Texas) and Ed Turner (Richardson, Texas).

The second round will begin Wednesday at 8:00 am EDT with the final round taking place Thursday, September 24.

ABOUT THE Trans-Miss Four-Ball

One of four annual championships hosted each year by the historic Trans-Mississippi Golf Association. Each player must be a member of a Trans-Mississippi member club, but not necessarily the same club. Players who do not belong to a Trans-Miss member club can speak to their club's manager or board of directors to encourage them to join (dues are very reasonable and support the Trans-Miss Turf Scholarship Fund). Alternatively, entrants may make a contribution in lieu of club membership to the Turf Scholarship Fund.
