Simpson, Gray continue reign at Labor Day golf tournament

Event continues Monday

DUNCAN — Defending champions Aaron Simpson and Jamie Gray stretched their lead in the 2013

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.

  Partly cloudy skies broke the intense humidity at the Duncan Golf and Tennis Club, but

a second day of plus 100-degree temperatures made play difficult in both morning and

afternoon rounds.

  The change to a best ball format also impacted players, increasing virtually all team

scores in the 85

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

  A three-way tie for first adds a competitive twist in A Flight, Posting a two-day 133 are

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

  Matt Moyer-Mike Zawicki assumed control of B Flight with a second day 68 for a 132

total and a four-shot lead over Jerry Williams-Ricky Price.

  The teams of Coby Wright-Gary Wright and Randy Freel-Rusty Freel shared the second

round lead in C Flight with a two-day 139 total.

 Dustin Holcomb-Mike Walters assumed sole control of D Flight with a 142 and Bill

Bradley-Phil Skinner maintained their edge in E Flight with a 151.
