Donnie Hollingsworth and David Kirk used a par of eagles and 11 birdies on Saturday to leave the field behind in the 15th Annual Jimmy Sandusky Memorial Tournament at Lakeview Golf Course on Saturday.
The pair started in the morning group and tore through the course to finish with a 15-under-par 55.
"In my 20 years that's the lowest score I can remember out here for a two-person (team)," said Lakeview general manager Richie Camp. "15-under is stout."
The tournament will continue today with the high scoring flights starting at 8:30 a.m. and the leaders teeing off at 1:30 p.m.
Hollingsworth and Kirk birdied No. 2, No. 5, No. 6, No. 7 and No. 8 and then eagled the par-four No. 9 to finish the front nine seven-under par.
The pair also birdied No. 10, No. 11, No. 13, No. 15, No. 16 and No. 18. An eagle on No. 14 helped the pair finished the 15-under-par round.
Jason Anders and Richard Ezell finished with a 57 Saturday morning to hold second place.
Johnny Boykins and Wayne Shelton teamed up in the early group to shoot a 58 to take third place after the first day of the event.
Steve and Joel Nelson and Tony Polizzi and Justin Catlett each finished the morning with a 59 to stay in striking distance.
The afternoon group didn't fair quite as well as the early group but had a pair of teams finish at 60. Johnny and Will Grace along with Jim and Shane Parker finished the course 10-under par to stay near the top of the leaderboard.
"We played pretty fair," said Jim Parker. "We could have played a little better. I figure it will take a 12 or 13-under to catch the leaders. I don't look for them to come back with another 15. They shot lights out."
According to Camp, the tournament got off to a great start.
"It went great," said Camp. "In the afternoon group we were worried about the weather but we only had a 20-minute delay. We got Saturday in, that's the main thing. Everybody seemed to be happy with the turnout and the free food. We are just as happy as we can be about it."
