Bulletin Staff Report

Ties can be found atop four of the six flights midway through the 2007 TexasBank Golf Classic, which is being hosted by the Brownwood Country Club. Ninety two-man teams are participating in this year’s 36-hole event, which wraps up later today.

Saturday’s low rounds — 10-under par 62s — were turned in by championship flight co-leaders Jeremy Alcorn and Scott McDaniel, and Mike Schulte and Manny Bhatka. Sitting one stroke back heading into today’s final 18 holes is the tandem of Frank Dietrich and Joe Don Slawson, who posted an opening round 63.

In president’s flight action, five teams share the lead following first-round scores of 66. Among the leaders are the teams of Walan Kite and Matt Giles, Bob Bitters and Kennon McLean, Michael Healer and Chicken Thomas, Derek Boscamp and Greg Denison, and Alan Grider and Rex Mayes.

Three more teams are just one shot back following Saturday 67s. That group consists of Phil Fenton and C. Norman Tinkler, David Leach and Mike Pool, and Craig Auldridge and Chip Head.

Four teams shared the best round in the first flight Saturday with scores of 67. Heading into today’s action the teams of Jason Cunningham and Matt Glenn, Mac Hughes and Bart Johnson, Terry Eckermann and Ricky Haynie, and Jaime Hernandez and Charlie Thomas are leading the pack.

Poised just one stroke behind the leaders are the teams of Don Bird and Scott Bird, along with Denny Cheney and Dennis Sokol. Both teams shot 68s Saturday.

The final first-round tie was in the third flight where the teams of Bob Rodgers and Neal Gilbert, along with Jeff Loudermilk and Stephen Heers, carded rounds of 71. Sitting one stroke back following opening 72s were the teams of Jerry Lancaster and Scott Lancaster, along with Don Jones and Tommy Corbell.

In second flight action, Earl Harriss and Greg Harriss were alone in first place following a round of 64. One stroke behind was the twosome of Jerry Don Gleaton and Tim Goodwin.

Joe Martin and Dana Smith also owned a one-stroke lead over Bill Hamilton and Robert Connaway at the midway point in the fourth flight. Martin and Smith posted a 73, while Hamilton and Connaway shot a 74.
