A very busy second day allowed golfers to finish the first round that was suspended because of rain and then begin play in the second round.

Nothing changed at the top of the leader board when all scores from the opening round were posted.

Jake Carter’s 64 held up. The FSU golfer from Aiken held a to shot lead when the second round started on Friday.

Carter played early on Thursday and avoided the bad weather, but his tee time in the second round was later in the afternoon.

The first round leader was only able to complete six holes of his second round. His score had not changed. When play was suspended Carter was still at 7-under par.

The clubhouse lead was taken by Logan Sowell. The College of Charleston golfer posted a 3-under par 68 to go with his first round 66 to stand at 8-under par.

Former Greenville County Amateur champion Danny Brock completed nine holes of his second round. With nine more holes to play Brock is tied with Carter, one shot behind Sowell.

Tyler Gray from Lugoff was 2-under par in the second round, but Gray only played seven holes.

When the round is completed the field will be cut to the low 70s and ties and the third round will begin off double tees at 12:30 pm.
