Reid Davis and Winston Powell have beaten a lot of golfers over the last few years as teammates at Lamar School. Saturday, they served notice they wouldn't mind adding a few more victims to their collection.
Reid and Powell shot a 10-under par 61 to lead the Ed Lewis Memorial Day Tournament at Northwood Country Club by two strokes over two-time defending champions Scott Morgan and Judge Little.
