Hattiesburg, Miss. — The team of Scott Rhodes and Tony Shell are simply keeping it rolling. The pair not only retained their 18-hole lead, they extended it…big time.

Rhodes and Shell saw their lead swell to five shots heading into Sunday’s final round, thanks to another bogey-free round at Hattiesburg Country Club. Nine birdies and an eagle decorated their scorecard, with the pair matching each other on two occasions en route to a second round 65 (-7).

Not to be outdone, Benton Smith and David Calhoun teamed up to take full advantage of moving day, posting a 65 of their own to move into a tie for second place. The duo struggled out of the gates early, finding themselves one over on the day with three bogeys on their card through their first five holes. Turning it on the par 3 7th, the team birdied their next eight holes, flipping the script and putting themselves in prime position to apply the pressure on Rhodes and Shell.
