Clarksville Golf AssociationClarksville, TN – Firing an opening round 15-under par 56, on June 22nd at Swan Lake Golf Course, the team of Tyler Phillips and Steven Williams hold a one-shot lead at the midway point of the Bud Light/Clarksville Golf Association Two-Man Scramble.

Clev Guinn and Tyler Guy are in second place, with a 14-under 57 first-round total, while Brian Balthrop and Josh Black are sitting in third place with a 12-under 59 total.

Still in the running are seven other teams are shot nine-under 62 or better, with two other teams shooting first-round 63s and 64s.

In the Senior Division, the team of Brad VanKirk and Griff Rudolph were the lone team to post a sub-60 round coming in with a 13-under par 58.

“We decided to have Brad hit first and he just kept getting it in play and that just freed me up to hit driver off every hole,” Rudolph said. “It’s easy to hit a pretty good drive when out of bounds is only going to cost you is a golf ball if you hit a bad one.

“The key to a scramble is to get that first ball in play, that frees up the next guy to free wheel it and that worked pretty well for us today. Brad kept it in play every hole so I was able to be as aggressive as I wanted to on every hole and we took advantage of it.”

That aggressiveness led to the duo being able to card three eagles over the final eight holes.

“We finished up pretty strong,” VanKirk said. “The name of the game is carding birdies, but we got a little lucky on (hole) number 11 knocking in about an 80-footer for eagle and Griff hit it in real close on number 14 and it was just a kick in. Finally, we had a 12- to 15-footer on 18 for their third eagle.

“We left a couple out there as far as the birdies, but we kind of made up for it with three eagles. I’m real happy with our (round) and I’ll take two of those and say come and get us.”

Barker Seay and Bruce Walker enter the final round two shots back after an opening round 11-under 60, while Tommy Shearon and Jeff Whitlow sit another shot back with a 10-under 61.

“We struck the ball pretty well today tee to green,” Walker said. “But it’s all about putting and we made the putts today and hopefully they’ll go in tomorrow too.

“I just feel like we were fortunate today, because we did have a couple of lucky shots find the hole.”
