Two birdies over his final six holes
helped Kyle Morris grab the lead at the halfway point of the
Buffalo Run Casino Classic.
Morris, of Columbus, Ohio, had a
7-under 65 Friday morning while completing a second round that was
halted by darkness. He was at 5-under through 12 holes (starting on
the back side) when the horn was sounded at 7:11 p.m.
I played pretty steady, Morris
said. I missed one green today.
He's got a 36-hole total of 14-under
130 and leads by two shots over Ryan Spears of Del City.
The third round started at 12:45
When play resumed Friday, Morris hit
to within 4 feet of the cup on the par-3 4th hole and
birdied to pick up some momentum.
I had another 4-footer for a birdie
on 5, but ended up missing that one, Morris said. I made a
12-footer on 7 then parred 8 and 9.
Michael Whitehead of Sugarland,
Texas, moved into third at 11-under 133 and 2008 BRCC champ Jeff
Corr, of Longwood, Fla., and Andrew Landry of Groves, Texas, shared
fourth at 10-under 134.
It was cold this morning and we had
to adjust distances, Morris said. It was a little windier, but
the greens were smooth.
Miamian Jerry Friend just missed the
cut after posting a 71. He finished at 1-under 143 The cut was
