Gay McMichael and Phil Harden from Macon sit atop the leaderboard in the Senior Four-Ball Championship after posting a 7-under-par 65 in round two. The 2018 edition of the Senior Four-Ball Championship is taking place at King & Prince Golf Course while the Super Senior Four-Ball Championship is being played at Sea Palms Golf Resort.

There are many former GSGA champions lurking near the top of the leaderboard in the Senior Four-Ball. Jeff Knox and Tripp Kuhlke put together another good round and sit two-strokes off the lead at 10-under-par. Chris Hall, who recently won his second Georgia Senior Championship title, is playing with Donny Phillips and they are at 8-under-par after two rounds along with three-time defending champions, Jack Hall and Doug Hanzel.

The Super Senior defending champions, Al Small and Larry Clark, went low in round two with seven birdies and an eagle on the par-4 12th hole. They are now tied for the lead at 8-under-par overall. Joining them atop the leaderboard is the team of Don Marsh and Ernie Venet.
