COLUMBUS, GA (June 15, 2017) - You know the field is strong when a player can shoot a 63, then shoot under par in the next round, and still lose his lead.

That was the reality for James Clark of Columbus, GA who followed up his low first round with a one-under 69 for an eight-under 132 total, only to see two players jump ahead of him at the halfway point of the Southeastern Amateur at the Country Club of Columbus.

Dillon Woods of Jacksonville, FL and Jonathan Hardee of Boiling Springs, SC share the lead at 9-under 131. Woods, who just finished his junior year at the University of North Florida, shot a bogey-free five-under 65 while Hardee, a rising senior at the University of Alabama, used an eagle of the first hole to propel him to a 66.

Clark would have joined them at the top had it not been for a final-hole bogey.

The leaderboard is crowded, with 27 players under par after two rounds.

Georgia Southern golfer Archer Price is alone in fourth after a 65 for a 134 total, three shots back of the leaders. Price has not yet dropped a shot in the tournament.

Three more players--Will Chandler of Atlanta, Michael Pisciotta of Alpharetta, GA and Austin Squires of Union, KY--are tied for fifth at 135, five under.
