GREENVILLE, S.C. (July 11, 2014) – Second round results of the 100th Carolinas Amateur Championship of the Carolinas Golf Association hosted by Greenville Country Club (Chanticleer) in Greenville, SC on Friday, July 11, 2014 (6836 yards, par 36-36—72, 75.0/146).
The story of the day revolved around the morning wave as two competitors took advantage of the great course conditions and beautiful weather to go low. Zach Seabolt of Raleigh, NC, who shared the round 1 lead with three other players, carded 10 total birdies on his way to a 7-under par 65 to hold a 3 shot lead (134, 10-under par) going into the third round. When asked to describe his round, Seabolt, a rising sophomore at Winthrop University, remarked, “I had the putter really rolling today. I made five straight on the front side starting out and that was a real confidence booster.”
Also having an exceptional round was Lee Palms of Greenville, SC. Palms is a member of the Greenville Country Club and knows the course well. He started on the back nine in the morning wave and holed out his second shot on the par 4 18th hole for an eagle. Shortly after making the turn to the front side, he carded a hole-in-one on the par three 2nd hole set at 155 yards today. Combined with three other birdies on the round, Palms shot a 66 (6-under) for a two day total of 137 (7-under par) and is alone in second place as the championship heads into the weekend.
