GEORGETOWN, SC (August 6, 2016) -- Breezy, warm
and beautiful conditions greeted the field for the third
round of the 85th South Carolina Amateur
Championship at DeBordieu Club in Georgetown, SC.
Carson Young (Pendleton), who was two shots behind
second round leader Andrew Novak (Mt. Pleasant)
heading into the day, posted a solid 4-under 68 to take
his own two shot lead heading into Sunday.
“I really didn’t make a lot of mistakes today,”
commented Young. “Made a couple of 15 to 20 footers
for birdie and didn’t make mistakes,” he added. On the
other hand, the challenging par five finishing hole
witnessed a Novak hiccup when he hit one into the
water and three putted for a double bogey. That cut the
tie between he and Young and left him two shots back
heading into the final 18 holes. “He’s hit his irons
incredibly well this week,” mentioned Young of Novak.
When asked about the possibility of claiming his
second Billy Lewis Trophy, Young said, “I think the last
amateur tournament I won was three years ago,”
referring to the 2013 SCGA Amateur Championship.
Making a move was mid-amateur Robert Lutomski
of Mauldin who was even heading into the weekend and
posted a 3-under 69. Easley’s Matt Carter is also
positioned at 3-under par going into Sunday.

Dye. The field consisted of 126 players by the time the
