Local Golf Pro Battles Amateur Ace at Farm Bureau Invitational

NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) _ Professional golfer David Lee and 2001 State Amateur Champion Rett Crowder share the lead going into the final day of play at the Farm Bureau Invitational at Beau Pre Country Club. Lee, from Windance Country Club, had a three-stroke lead heading into second round play Saturday after shooting a first-round 65. But a second-round 72 allowed Crowder to close the gap. Crowder shot a 4-under 68 Saturday. Lee and Crowder are both 7 under. The Mississippi PGA event _ with a $35,000 purse for professionals _ is open to amateurs and pros. Amateurs have won the last five tournaments. Haymes Snedeker, an assistant golf coach at the University of Mississippi, is one stroke off the lead. Three others are two strokes back.
