MUELLER MOVES TO LEAD POSITION FOR FINAL ROUND

Only in Lanikai will you experience one of the most spectacular sunrises that frames the Mokulua islands with breathtaking beauty that can only be found in Hawaii. That is what the players of Round #3 were treated to as they teed of this morning at Mid-Pacific Country Club.

The first 36-holes before the cut will test a player’s mental and physical strengths. For those teeing off this morning in Round #3, yesterday is a part of their past as they refocus on making their move for Round #3 as they jockey for striking position in Round #4. Professional Jesse Mueller did just that today when he made the turn from the back nine 2-under and finished 2-under on the front for a third round total of (68). Mueller leads the final round of the Open at 7-under. Past champion Nick Mason posted a solid 37-35 =72 today to hold on to a firm 2nd place. Both Mueller and Mason will be joined in the final pairings tomorrow by Eric Meichtry who is 1-under for the tournament. The lead group will tee off at 8:50 AM tomorrow on the 1st tee.

In the Senior Professional division, Casey Nakama claimed the 2014 SENIOR PROFESSIONAL division in an 18-hole playoff with Stan Souza. Nakama’s finish today will earn him a $2,800 payout.

In the Championship flight, Punahou teammates Kyle Suppa and PJ Samiere are tied for the lead at 4-over (220) after 54 holes. James Mansell is leading A-Flight by three swings over Wendell Kop, and David Kochi has a strong lead in B-Flight over two way tie between William Enomoto and Fred Denault.

Tomorrow morning the Professional and Championship flight will be teeing off on the 1st tee starting at 6:50 AM. B-Flight will be teeing off at 6:50 AM on the 10th tee followed by A-Flight at 7:40 AM.

Experience Lanikai tomorrow as Hawaii’s elite golfers take to the tee in the final round of the MID-PACIFIC OPEN.
