Nashville’s Brandt Snedeker backed his first-day 62 with a 7-under 65 and owns a three-shot lead over Andrew Buckle as of early afternoon in today’s round of the Nationwide Tour’s Chattanooga Classic golf tournament at Black Creek Club.
Snedeker’s first-round score tied the course record and made him co-leader with Knoxville’s Garrett Willis heading into today’s play. Willis was 1 over through his first three holes Friday.
Buckle’s matching 65s has him one stroke ahead of Rick Price (66-65) and David Hearn (65-66).
Ringgold’s Thomas Hagler IV is 9 under through 14 holes and tied for 10th with Willis. One of his playing partners and former Baylor School student Luke List is on the move at 7 under for the day and 8 under for the tournament.
