We had us a good one in the A flight today. Steve Mccauley who is fresh up from the B flight, carded three pars and nothing worse then a bogey shooting a 41 on the front. One of our new members, Todd Wilson, in his first ever Golfweek Amateur Tour event, had 4 pars on the front and also didn't have anything worse then bogey shooting a 38 to take a 3 stroke lead.

Scott came out red hot swinging that new Taylor Made Stealth driver, dropping bombs.
