NEW YEAR'S INVITATIONAL: Miami's Adam Scriminti shot 6-under 66 at St. Petersburg Country Club to take a one shot lead after two rounds. Scriminti had a two-day total of 134, but there were plenty within reach. John Holmes, last year's runner-up, shot 8-under 65 and was at 135. Holmes' round included five straight birdies to start the back nine and he also eagled the par-5 second hole. Joel Myrick, who attends Mississippi, was also a shot back after 65.
Michael Quigliano, Jeff Overton and Dalton Melnyk were two back and Luke List was three behind. Doug Root led the senior division with a two-day total of 146. The tournament continues today and the top 32 tee off at noon.
