L. Wadkins, Sauers lead by 2

April 27, 1991

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Lanny Wadkins and Gene Sauers squeezed some low scores out of a difficult Forest Oaks Country Club course to share a two-stroke lead midway through the K mart Greater Greensboro Open.

Wadkins came away with a 7-under 65 and a two-day total of 134. Sauers came through in the afternoon with a 64, one stroke shy of the GGO record, to match Wadkins' 10-under par total in the $1.25 million tournament.

"The golf course didn't give me a thing today," said Wadkins, the champion in 1983. "I earned everything I got out there."

What Wadkins earned was eight birdies and one bogey in a round that started in light rain. Sauers attacked the back nine with a run of five birdies for a total of nine -- one bogey tainted his day -- to momentarily dispel the notion that Forest Oaks was a monster that gave strokes grudgingly.
