Richey again knocking on door for NGA win

McCORMICK -- Brian Richey will be first to say the leaderboard is furthest from his mind.
"You've got to handle your business no matter what the other guys are doing until the last hole or two," he said.
That might be the case today as he remains the leader in this year's Savannah Lakes Village Classic at Monticello Golf Club.
The former Florida Southern University golfer, who led this event from the git-go, is in contention again after carding a 1-under-par 71 Saturday. Collectively, Richey is at 14-under 202.
This is nothing new to Richey, considering he played the past two final rounds this season in the final group. He tied for third two weeks ago in Southeast Georgia, and then tied for 12th last week in Seneca.
Maybe that's why he appeared more enthused than nervous after Saturday's round.
"I'm looking forward to the challenge," said Richey, who finished tied for second in an NGA event last year. "I would like to play a solid round. I've been knocking on the door several times. So, hopefully, we can get that one done today."
Richey is not the only one knocking on the door.
