Somebody is going to have to go get him, if they want to knock Will Hartman out of the top spot at the Bobby Chapman Junior.
Hartman opened the prestigious 54 hole junior event at The Country Club of Spartanburg with a 7-under 64 to hold the first round lead by four shots.
The Marvin, NC golfer didn’t score as well in the second round, but only lost a shot to the field after posting a second round 1-under par 70.
“Today was a lot harder on the course than yesterday,” said Hartman. “The greens were faster; the pins were tougher, and the course is firming out,” he said.
Hartman’s lead is now three shots as he enters the final round.
Kyle Haas, from Winston-Salem shot a second round 2-under par 69 to be alone in second place.
Greenville’s William Jennings shot a 1-under par 70. He is still 4-shots behind the leader, but now in third place.
The best round of the day was turned in by Brock Blais from Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
After finishing the front nine at even par, Blais birdied his first five holes on the back nine to finish with a 66 and moved up 18 spots into contention at 3-under par.
Boiling Springs’ Andrew Gregory shot a 2-under par 69 to be tied with Carson Bertagnole from Pinehurst for seventh place.
The field will use split tees on Sunday with the first tee time at 9:30am.
The lead group will include Hartman, Haas and Jennings.
They will be on the first tee at 11:10 and the tournament leader expects to be challenged by two golfers he will play with, but also a field of outstanding golfers who got a little closer in the second round.
“I’m going to have to play really well tomorrow. The two people I’m playing with and everyone behind me are all really good golfers so it’s going to be tough, but it’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Hartman.
