FLORENCE, S.C. (Oct. 16, 2018) – Warm temperatures, sunshine, and a slight breeze greeted players for the opening round of the Harry Wilson Super Senior Championship at Florence Country Club. Tim Pope of Spartanburg will take a one-shot lead into the final round.
Pope, recently crowned the 2018 Senior Men’s Club Champion at Musgrove Mill Golf Club, began his day on the first hole on a pristine Florence Country Club layout. After a bogey on the second hole, Pope followed with a birdie on the third along with six straight pars to complete his front nine with an even-par score of 35.
Pope continued his trek to the back nine by making pars on Nos. 10-12 before allowing one stroke to slip away with a bogey on the par-4 13th hole. After pars on Nos. 14 and 16, Pope negated the prior bogey with a birdie on the par-4 17th and also added a chip-in eagle on the par-5 18th to complete his round with a 2-under 69. Frank Ford of Charleston is one shot behind Pope after an opening-round score of 70.
