Lee Clarke shot a fine 4 under par 68 in chilly conditions to take a 2 shot lead at Morley Hayes in the first ever 2 day event on The Eagle Pro Golf Tour.
Clarke will partner James Burnett in the last group tomorrow after a very steady 2 under par 70.
Order of merit leader Simon Lilly is third on 71 with Eagle Tour debutant Nick Newbold a further 2 shots back.
The winner tomorrow will pocket £1000 and will almost tie up the Stromberg mini order of merit for September.
If anyone would like to come and watch some of the finest players in the Midlands tomorrow, they are more than welcome. Tee times start at 9.00
