McCORMICK -- So much for the dramatic attempts like a 60-footer from the fringe that bounces off the pin and into the hole.
But three consecutive birdies around the turn set the tone for Brian Richey as he not only maintained his lead in the Savannah Lakes Village Classic, but built on it. After leading the field by one with a 66 Thursday, Richey carded a 65 for a two-day total of 131.

That’s good enough to give the former Florida Southern University golfer a four-stroke lead. Tied for second are Jonathan Hodge and J.C. Horne, who carded scores of 65 and 68, respectively, Friday.  
Tyson Alexander, the son of University of Florida men’s golf coach Buddy Alexander, is in fourth place with a two-day total of 136, followed by Clayton Rask with a 137.
Greenwood’s Vince Hatfield, meanwhile, carded a 68 Friday and is tied for 16th with a two-day total of 140.
