Moye leads move with double eagle

June 06, 1999|By John W. Stewart | John W. Stewart,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Macon Moye of Charlotte, N.C., recorded the first double eagle in tournament history, and he and partner Buddy Marucci of Berwyn, Pa., used a share of the day's low round, a 67, to move into contention in the ninth annual Chesapeake Cup at Caves Valley Golf Club yesterday.

Jerry Courville and Joe Sommers, a Connecticut twosome that won the cup in 1995, also shot 4-under-par 67 and joined Moye-Marucci at 135.

The pairings of Cliff Harris-Jamie Crow and Craig Carson-Bob Young each shot 3-under-par 68 to remain one-two.

Harris and Crowe are at 65-68133, and Carson and Young, the 1996 titlists, at 66-68134 heading into today's final round of the four-ball tournament.

Moye started at No. 10, and he and Marucci combined for four birdies and three bogeys, through 15 holes. At the 540-yard, par-5 seventh hole, Moye's four-iron second shot hit the green, checked up and curled left into the cup.

The only other double eagle in the nine-year club history was at the 519-yard No. 3.
