Dougherty County-- In golf, some players say they felt rusty after round one of the Albany Senior Invitational. After all the Albany Senior is the first event on the 2004 season for the Cadillac Senior Series.
And the pros better hope they got all the rust out of their golf back with the 132 player field cut to the top 45 scores after today's second round at Stonebridge Country Club.
First round leader James Mason was hoping to run away from the field after his ped in for par and a round of 69, 11-under so far. 1
990 Southern Open winner Kenny Knox definitely got the rust out after a 74 Thursday, tapped in for birdie on number and goes to eight under on the round. Knox, who played the back nine first, looked to close out his round with another birdie but his bid for 63, but came up just short.
Kenny Knox is very happy with a 64 and a two day score of six under par, as the former Florida State golfer is back playing professional golf for the first time in ten years.
Mason will enter Saturday's final round tied with Jeb Stuart for the lead at (-11).
Stuart shot a 65 on Friday while Tom McKnight's 66 moves him to third at (-9).
Mark Johnson is one shot back in fourth and PGA veterans Tim Simpson and Rex Caldwell are among four players tied for fifth at (-7).
