Simpson, Gray continue reign at Labor Day golf tournament

Labor Day Invitational to five shots with a second round – best ball – 63 for a two-day

120 championship flight score.

  J.J. Russell and Kevin Keck are second at 125 following the day’s best round of 62.

scores in the 85

Saturday’s first round. Monday’s round will be a modified alternate shot format.

Greg Mahaffey-Rusty England, Terry Dittner-Wayne Woods and Chris Staats-Jeff Elroy.
