LEADERBOARD SHAKES UP ON DAY TWO

After a brief sprinkling of rain this morning, round two of the Boeing Classic officially began in front of 28,000 fans anxiously waiting to see their favorite pros hit the course. The skies cleared, and from the start it was apparent that today was one where a lot of great golf would be seen.

Atop the leaderboard at the end of day two sits John Riegger at -11 with Tom Lehman, Bernhard Langer, Kirk Triplett, and Bobby Clampett sitting only three strokes behind at -8. Clampett, Triplett, and John Cook will tee off at 11:50am, with Langer, Lehman, and Riegger taking their first swings 12:00pm.

Another notable pairing for Sunday includes Fred Couples, Kenny Perry and Rocco Mediate who sit at -5, and are tied for 10th with defending Boeing Classic champion Jay Don Blake and three others. With this many players still in contention, you don't want to miss the action that is going to unfold tomorrow at the Boeing Classic.

Who will you be rooting for to become the 2013 Boeing Classic champion? We can't wait to see you Sunday!

BOEING CLASSIC TO HOST MILITARY APPRECIATION DAY, TO START WITH VINTAGE MILITARY FLYOVER

On Championship Sunday the Boeing Classic will honor the men and women that serve in our Armed Forces by hosing the third annual Military Appreciation Day. The day will begin with a ceremony on the First Tee featuring a special performance of the National Anthem and Joint Services Honor Guard, followed by the player announcements made by military personnel.

To conclude the opening ceremony, and just prior to the first drive of Championship Sunday, a flyover will be conducted by the Flying Heritage Collection when two vintage military aircraft over the 18th fairway. A P-51D Mustang and B-25J Mitchell will fly in salute and signal the start of the championship round.

The U.S.O. will host a very special event at the top of the 18th green in The Patriots Outpost, where free food and drink will be offered to military families, all while flying the stars and stripes on the 18th green. And now for the best part of Military Appreciation Day- all active, retired and reserve military and their dependents will receive free admission on Sunday. Come join us at the Boeing Classic and say thank you to all of these men and women who have dedicated themselves to serving our country.

BOEING CLASSIC VOLUNTEERS, THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS

Hosting 81 legendary golfers, 30 events and more than 80,000 fans in just one week's time would not be possible without the many hours of work put in by our tournament's amazing volunteers. This year the Boeing Classic has enlisted the help of approximately 1,000 volunteers many of whom who are from this region, but include dedicated people from around the country as well.

In honor of these individuals who have dedicated their time, energy and passion into making the Boeing Classic such a success, the tournament staff hosted a Volunteer Appreciation Party at the course on Saturday night. Volunteers were treated to great food, drinks, and over fifty raffle prizes!

Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers for your amazing work this week, and we hope to see you next year at the 2014 Boeing Classic!
