Small takes commanding lead
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Danville native and University of Illinois men’s golf coach Mike Small continued to build his lead in the PGA Senior Stroke Play Championship on Monday.
Small shot a 6-under-66 to get a seven-shot lead in the 50-59 age group of the event after starting the second round with a bogey.
“I showed some resiliency,” Small said. “I’m thrilled to be 13-under and make eight birdies each day.”
Small birdied the 12th, 13th, 16th, 17th, first, fifth, seventh and eighth holes at the PGA Golf Club to take a six-shot lead over Frank Exposito of Floral Park, N.J.
Small will be tough to beat. Not only has he won three PGA Professional Championships, but two years ago he had three top-10s on the PGA Tour Champions and qualified for the playoffs.
“We’re all competitors and you want to perform when you have the chance,” Small said. “I know the guys enjoy my success and I think we both play better. Winning perpetuates winning.”
The Tournament will wrap up today.
