LEAGUE CITY, TX (March 18, 2017) -- Broc Haymon
carded a personal best 9-under par 63 to take a
commanding seven shot lead heading into the final
round of the Texas South Mid-Amateur presented by
Impact Precision Golf. Haymon navigated the
England-Scotland Courses at Magnolia Creek Golf
Club with precision and accuracy to reach 10-under
par 134 after two rounds.
Haymon, of Pearland, was able to record 11
birdies during his second round in calmer conditions
after the wind gusts players fought in the opening
round. Haymon strung together four straight birdies
beginning on par four second hole. A bogey hiccup
on the par four seventh hole was quickly covered
with a birdie on the par five ninth hole to make the
turn at 4-under par 32. Haymon continued his hot
play on the second nine with six birdies, two pars
and a lone back nine birdie on the par four 15th hole
en route to a 31 finish.
“You dream about having a round like this.
Once I had my fourth birdie in the first five holes, I
did my best to not think about going low and just
staying out of my own way. You try to put each hole
behind you and just focus on the next shot” said the
2016 Houston City Amateur Champion Haymon.
Haymon will carry a seven shot lead over
Spring’s Randy Lance, Chris Causey and Trevor
Sauntry, both of Houston. The trio sits at 3-under
par for two rounds.
Lance, winner of the South Mid-Amateur at
Magnolia Creek in 2010, posted the second lowest
round of the tournament to this point with a 5-under
par 67 during Saturday’s play. Lance was bogey free
with five birdies in his second round and currently
leads the Mid-Master recognition (players 40 years
of age and older). Sauntry, leader after round one,
posted an even par 72. Causey, tied for fifth place
after day one posted a 3-under par 69 in his second
Houston’s Scott Smith is alone in fifth place
heading into the final round after his second round
3-under par 69. Smith’s two-day total for the South
Mid-Amateur currently stands at 2-under par 142
and one shot off of Lance in the Mid-Master.
Tomorrow’s final round will begin with tee times
starting at 8:00 AM off of holes #1 & #10, again off
of the England and Scotland Courses at Magnolia
Creek. Our final group consisting of Haymon, Causey
and Sauntry will begin their round at 9:30 AM off of
