Defending champs Singh, Franco lead Legends of Golf
Singh and Franco shot a 7-under 47 in wind gusting to 20 mph on the Top of the Rock par-3 course to get to 19-under 145, a stroke ahead of the teams of David Toms–Steve Flesch and Paul Broadhurst–Kirk Triplett.
Toms and Flesch also shot 47, and Broadhurst and Triplett had a 33 on the 13-hole Mountain Top par-3 course. The teams will finish play Sunday at Top of the Rock, again playing the front nine in alternate shot and the back nine in better ball.
Singh and Franco are trying to become the first to successfully defend a title since Jim Colbert and Andy North in 2001. Singh won the Toshiba Classic in March for his first individual senior title.
Flech won the Mitsubishi Electric Classic last week in Georgia for his first senior victory.
