So. Carolina Amateur: Moore leads on home course
BLYTHWOOD, So. Carolina (June 13, 2012) -- Caulder Moore of Isle of Palms, SC shot a 67 and holds the outright lead after the first round of the South Carolina Amateur Match Play Championship at Cobblestone Park Golf Club.

Moore, a member of the University of South Carolina golf team leads fellow Isle of Palmer Jackson Moore and Gaffney’s Adam Goins by one shot. Two golfers are two shots back, including recent South Carolina Four-Ball co-champion Walt Todd, Jr.

“This course is USC’s home course so I am very familiar with it,” said Moore, “I have played it many times so hopefully that will help.”

The competitors will play a second round of stroke play before heading into the match play portion of the championship. The top 32 qualifiers will advance. Defending champion Mark Joye was unable to defend his title this year.
