Anna Morgan was the only golfer to shoot under par in the first round. The Spartanburg junior held a four-shot lead over four golfers.

The WSCGA sponsored tournament was scheduled for 36 holes, but tournament administrators decided the weather conditions would not allow a full second round to be completed.

After the course near Travelers Rest took on an inch and a half of rain overnight the second round was shortened to 9 holes and a 27 hole championship.

Morgan shot a 2-over par 38 on her final nine holes. She finished the tournament as the only golfer who matched par at 108.

After making the best of difficult playing conditions Morgan believed all things considered, “the course was in great shape, I made a lot of putts and just overall played well,” she said.

Phoebe Carles of Clinton shot the best score in the second round carding a 1-over pr 37 to move up to  a second place tie with four other golfers. Carles was awarded second place using a scorecard playoff.

Also finishing at 115 were Baylee Evans of Lancaster, Isabella Rawls of Lexington, Nicole Kramer of Charlotte and Elle Johnson of Inman.
