Mother Nature Decides Round One Plans

DSC_1350aThe day began as a bright and sunny morning for the first wave of players at the 84th SCGA Amateur Championship at Greenville Country Club’s Chanticleer Course but mother nature would have her fair share to say for the afternoon groups. With the morning groups finishing up on the course early, two weather delays have forced round one to be completed on Friday morning ahead of the second round tee times.

Trent Phillips of Inman will be atop the leader board heading into the continuation of round one. Starting on hole #10, the rising Sophomore at Boiling Springs High School, accumulated four birdies and five pars on his first nine. After the turn, Phillips added four more birdies to offset two bogeys to begin the SCGA Amateur Championship with a 6 under par 66. Phillips, at age 15, is the youngest player in this year’s field.

Michael McKee (Ware Shoals) is one shot off the leader after an opening round of 5 under par 67 followed by Ryan Carpenter (Aiken) with a 4 under par 68.

The extension of the first round of the Amateur Championship will begin on Friday morning with a 7.30 am shotgun followed by the second round beginning at 8.30 am off of #1 and #10 tees.
