Samford’s Connor Reid of Alexander City, AL and Dylan Moncus of Opelika, AL lead round one the 38th Alabama State Four-Ball Championship, opening with a nine-under 63. Holing an eagle from the bunker on No. 7, they secured a one-stroke lead.

“Whenever one of us would make a mistake, the other would bounce back and make a great shot,” Reid said. “Playing with a teammate is a lot of fun!”

“We finished strong, with birdies on 17 and 18,” Moncus said. “We have good momentum heading into the second day.”

Brett Greene and John Wright of Fairhope, AL stand tied second with George Hall of Auburn, AL and Harlan Winn of Birmingham, AL. Each team posted eight-under 64.
