Jeff New maintains Carlton Woods Senior Invitational Advantage

THE WOODLANDS, TX (May 3, 2017) – On the heels of a first round 4-under 68 Jeff New shot a second round 1-under 71 on Tuesday and at 5-under he will carry a comfortable six-stroke lead into the final round of the Carlton Woods Senior Invitational.
Playing at the Nicklaus Course of The Club at Carlton Woods, New carded four birdies and three bogeys on Wednesday and he is just one of two player in either field to have two consecutive subpar rounds.

New, the Carlton Woods Senior runner-up in 2014, recorded his birdies on Nos. 4, 5, 15 and 17. His back nine birdies were part of closing nine bogey-free 2-under 34.

Mike Peck is a distant second at 1-over, 2015 champion Lee Sandlin is third at 2-over while Mike Booker, Herb Fisher and Larry Nunez are tied for fourth at 3-over.

Jospeh Deraney and Justin Kaplan share 36-hole Carlton Woods Invitational Lead

THE WOODLANDS, TX (May 3, 2017) – With the second day of the Carlton Woods Invitational in the books at the Nicklaus Course of The Club at Carlton Woods the names atop the leaderboard have remained the same. Both Joseph Deraney and Justin Kaplan fired 5-under 67’s on Tuesday before shooting 2-over 74’s on Wednesday to drop to 3-under. However, despite the struggles the pair will still begin Wednesday’s final round 3-under and ahead by a shot.

Playing in his first career Carlton Woods Invitational, Deraney started his second round slowly with a front nine 3-over 39 that included six bogeys and also fortunately a birdie and an eagle on the par-5 8th that helped keep his round afloat.

Although Deraney, who won three Ranking events last year, bogeyed the 9th and 12th hole his day did start to turn around following the eagle, as he also birdied Nos. 16 and 18 on the way home.

Kaplan was able to put together a solid even-par front nine with a birdie and a bogey, however on the way home he had to work hard to stay in front. Following four consecutive pars to begin the side, Kaplan double-bogeyed the 14th before bogeying the 15th to fall to 3-over for the round. Unfazed, Kaplan responded with 16th hole birdie.

Heading into the final round it is Heath Myers in third place at 2-under, Derek Busby in fourth place at even-par and Jess Bonneau in fifth at 1-over.

Defending champion Colby Harwell is sharing ninth at 5-over.
