When it comes to area golf tournaments, never, ever count out the team of Judge Little and Scott Morgan until the final hole is played.
Little and Morgan fired a 13-under par 58 Sunday morning to take the lead in the second round of the Ed Lewis Memorial Day Tournament at Northwood Country Club. After 36 holes, Little and Morgan are 17 strokes under par at 125.
Sunday's round was played with a best-ball format and Little and Morgan took advantage to take a one-stroke lead over first-round leaders David Ray and Alex Weddington, who shot a 9-under 62 and are tied for second place at 126 with the team of Ed Brown and Chuck Gordon.
Brown and Gordon had the day's second-best round Sunday as they shot a 12-under 59.
Little and Morgan started on No. 3 and quickly posted birdies on Nos. 4, 5, and 6. After a pair of pars, they birdied Nos. 9, 10, and 11 before putting an eagle-3 on their card on No. 12. They also had birdies on Nos. 14, 15, 16, 18, and 1.
Brown and Gordon began their day on No. 4 and birdied five of their first six holes. They also had birdies on Nos. 12, 14, 18, 1, and 3 to go with an eagle-3 on No. 16.
First-round leaders Ray and Weddington started on No. 1 and used a string of five consecutive birdies on the back nine in their 62. On the front nine, they birdied Nos. 4, 8, and 9. After parring Nos. 10 and 11, they reeled off birdies on Nos. 12-16 and closed with a birdie on No. 18.
Joel Nelson and Steve Nelson shot an 11-under 60 Sunday and are in fourth place overall with a 129. In their second round, they started on No. 6 and did so with a bang as they put an eagle-3 on their scorecard. They went on to record birdies on Nos. 9, 12, 13, 14, 16, 18, 1, 3, and 5.
