The Ally Challenge R2

Jerry Kelly takes one stroke lead in Michigan

September 13-15
Warwick Hills G&CC, Grand Blanc, Michigan
$2,000,000
Round 1, Round 3


Jerry Kelly will take a one-stroke lead into the final round of the PGA Tour Champions’ Ally Challenge after birdieing the first five holes on the back nine to finish with a 7-under 65.

”You always have to go low out here,” Kelly said. ”Somebody’s always going to shoot a good score and I’m glad it was me today.”

Charles Schwab Cup points leader Scott McCarron was tied for second with Woody Auston. McCarron, a three-time winner this season, birdied four of the last five holes in a 67.


”Any time you can finish like that, it’s a pretty good day,” McCarron said. ”I didn’t really get anything going for most of the day, but I was hitting it well and I was hitting good putts, they weren’t going in, so I just had to stay really patient.”
