Two Man Links at Bandon Dunes: team Phillips takes 3-shot lead
The Georgia-based team of Jacob and Mark Phillips shot a 9-under 63 at the Sheep Ranch to take a three-shot lead into the final round of the Two Man Links Championship at Bandon Dunes.

The Father-Son duo shot 68 and 69 on their own balls at the Sheep Ranch, going 6 under on the inward nine to reach 14 under for the tournament and pull ahead of the defending champs and fellow Georgians Tim Lovell and Scott Pitts. A pair of Father-Son teams, Aaron & Bob Smith (Pella, Iowa) and Donald & Zachary Miller (Alpharetta, Ga.), sit four shots back at 10 under.

The Senior division turned into a two-team race, with leaders Brad Kropp (Edmond, Okla.) and Norman Lewis (Madison, N.J.) shooting a 7-under 65 to get to 7 under par the tournament. Their playing partners Mark Macejko and Duff Meyer (Pinehurst, N.C.) matched the 65 to stay two shots back.

Pete and Lawson Wlodkowski share the net lead with the Millers, with both teams at 18 under par net through three rounds. Lawson, a junior at the University of Arizona, shot his career low round, a 75, on his own ball and beat his father for the first time ever.

The defending Net champions Joseph and Joseph M. Kowalski are two shots back at 16 under.

The third round saw the best scoring of the tournament so far, as the weather continued to be sunny and pleasant, as it was for Old Macdonald and Bandon Trails in rounds 1 and 2.

The final round will be played at Bandon Dunes, with a split-tee start, after which winners will be crowned in the Championship, Net, Senior, and Father-Son (Gross and Net).

ROUND 1 REPORT


The waves were up and the sun was out at Old Mac
The 21st Two Man Links Championship at Bandon Dunes teed off on Friday, with 38 teams enjoying a gloriously sunny day at Old Macdonald for the first round of play.

After a week or more of wind and rain, the course was softer than normal but still linksy, allowing the character of the Tom Doak-designed C.B. Macdonald tribute course to shine through.

Aaron and Bob Smith, a father-son duo from Pella, Iowa, made four birdies in a five-hole stretch to take the first-round lead with a 4-under 67. Five teams, including the defending champions, Tim Lovell and Scott Pitts of Georgia, sit one shot back at 3 under par.

The defending Net champions, Joseph Kowalski and Joseph M Kowalski of Arizona, are back on top after an 8-under 63. Two teams, including AmateurGolf.com founder Pete Wlodkowski and his son Lawson, are at 7 under par Net.

Six-time champions Sherman Haggerty and Ben Whipple shot a 1-under 70 to take a one-shot lead in the Senior division over Brad Kropp and Norman Lewis.

The field moves to Bandon Trails for the second round on Saturday, followed by the Sheep Ranch on Sunday and Bandon Dunes for the final round on Monday.
