LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – With a few exceptions, scoring appears to have become more difficult this windswept Thursday afternoon.
Derek Lamely, who won last year’s Puerto Rico Open, has moved into the logjam at 6 under after getting up-and-down for birdie at the par-4 fourth hole. Lamely, who entered the week ranked 188th on the money list but with a year remaining on his exemption from the win, is playing the more difficult Magnolia Course.
So is Kris Blanks and he’s prospering, too. Blanks, who is playing one group behind Lamely and has completed 16 holes, also birdied the fourth and stands 5 under for the tournament.
Over at the Palm Course, Paul Stankowski is 5 under through 15 holes. He started the week ranked No. 137 on the money list.
