Leader Thomas Todd
CHARLOTTE, NC (April 22, 2017) - The last time the
Carolinas Mid-Amateur was held at Providence
Country Club, Walter Todd, Sr. won the title. Ten
years later, Walter's nephew, 30-year-old Thomas
Todd, III, holds the 36-hole lead. The two Todds,
both of Laurens, S.C., teamed together in 2009 to
win the Carolinas Four-Ball Championship.
In breezy conditions Saturday, just five players
were able to break par in the second round of the
37th Carolinas Mid-Amateur Championship at
Providence Country Club. The day's low round, and
top spot on the leaderboard, belong to Thomas
Todd, III of Laurens, S.C. Todd followed his opening
round 69 with a stellar four-under 68. With a two-
day total of 137, Todd takes a five shot lead into
Sunday's final round. In each of the first two days,
Todd made birdied holes 8, 9, & 10.
One of the longer hitters in the field, Todd is
five-under on the five par-5s at Providence Country
Club. "Driver is one of my greatest strengths," said
Todd, who at age 30 is playing in his first Carolinas
Mid-Am. "But I told myself I felt like I could play this
layout and it setup well for me."
Robert Lutomski of Simpsonville, S.C. and two-
time North Carolinas Mid-Am champion Greg
Earnhardt of Greensboro are tied for second at two-
First round leader John Heffernan of Charlotte,
N.C. stumbled in the windy conditions Saturday
afternoon. His second round 79 drops him to T17.
The field was cut to the low 60 scores and ties.
Sixty players made the cut at 10-over 154. Just six
players are below even-par 144 thru 36 holes.
With a storm expected to arrive to the Charlotte
area Sunday afternoon, the final round will begin
with an 8:30am shotgun start.
