What is your favorite kind of links’ fowl? Big birds or little birdies?

In the game of golf, they all count the same. But if Mike Potts had a preference, it would be the short ones.

On Saturday morning at par-72, 5,734-yard Pine Meadows Golf Course, during the opening round of the 30th annual Lebanon County Better-Ball-of-Partners tournament, Potts was on fire, but more with his irons than his blade.

Potts scored six birdies – mostly from short range – to help him and partner Jesse Brown to the first-round lead at the Lebanon County Golf Association’s most popular event. Sticking approach shot after approach shot close to the pin, Potts and Brown fired a blistering eight-under par 64 to take a three-shot advantage into the second and final day of the 36-hole event.

In addition, Potts chipped in for birdie at the par-five, tenth hole.
