Good morning from Kentucky Lake. The leaders Tucker Smith and Hayden Marbut are getting mic’d up for ESPNU television coverage right before takeoff.
Smith and Marbut hold a nearly 10-pound lead over second place Flint Davis and James Henemyre.
The Top 12 will have to wait a little longer to take the water on Championship Saturday though, as tournament directors have delayed takeoff to evaluate the waves on Kentucky Lake.
A cold front moved through late yesterday afternoon and early evening, bringing breezy north winds with it.
We will keep you updated on the progress of takeoff.
After a discussion with the National Weather Service, tournament director Hank Weldon announced teams will takeoff at 7:45 a.m. CT.
