Mike Hill and Lee Trevino are leading the 36-hole, better-ball team event after an 11-under score of 61. Frank Beard and Larry Ziegler are two strokes back at 63, while Bibby Gilbert and J.C. Snead are two off the pace at 64.
The leaders will tee off at 8:30 this morning, while Ferree's group will take to the course at 9:10 a.m.
The Demaret Division is down to 18 teams after four teams withdrew Monday morning. The teams of Charlie Sifford and Lee Elder, Bob Toski and Jack Fleck, Howie Johnson and Fred Hawkins and Doug Sanders and Al Besselink did not tee it up.
