MT. PLEASANT, S.C. (June 24, 2015) — Two Charleston college golfers are among the four- way tie for the lead at the Rice Planters Amateur at Snee Farm Country Club. Julian Keur (Charleson Southern) and College of Charleston’s William Rainey (College of Charleston) both fired 65 and are tied with Will Long and Cameron MacKay of University of Connecticut.

Keur birdied half the holes today, recording four ont the front nine and five on the back against bogeys on Nos. 1 and 8. As for Long, who plays for Auburn, his round was a bit more exciting -- out in 36 and back in 29. And how's this for a closing 7 holes? Birdie, birdie, par, birdie, eagle, birdie, birdie. We're betting that Long can't wait to get to the first tee tomorrow.

Giving chase are 2014 U.S. Open participant (remember him from Pinehurst?) Will Grimmer of Ohio State (66), and Hayden Wood of Oklahoma State (67).

2013 champion Maverick Antcliff and last year's runner-up Andrew Novak are tied with three other players in seventh place. Defending champion Rigel Fernandes opted to play the Northeast Amateur in Rhode Island this week instead of defending his title.
