Rain may be the only thing that can keep the leaderboard stagnant
this week at Anndndale Golf Club. Scott Stallings has gone
birdie-birdie-eagle on holes 3-5 to reach 16 under and build a
three-shot lead early in the third round of the True South Classic.
After making putts of 8 feet and 29 feet for his two birdies,
Stallings drained a 43-foot eagle putt on the par-5 5th hole to
solidify his position atop the leaderboard. But Stallings isn't the
only one going low. Both Tommy Gainey and William McGirt are 7
under through 12 holes to reach 13 under and 12 under respectively.
Gainey, starting on No. 1, made four consecutive pars to open
before carding two birdies and an eagle to make the turn in 32. He
added birdies on Nos. 10-12 to reach his 7 under mark for today's
round. Jus two of Gainey's birdie (or eagle) makes today have come
from outside 10 feet. McGirt started on No. 10, making back-to-back
birdies before going on a run of pars through the 15th. He's since
rode a hot putter to add birdies on Nos. 16, 17, 18, 2 and 3 to
reach his 7 under mark. Four of those five birdie rolls have
come from outside 10 feet.
