JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. (Nov. 1, 2018) – Paul Simson of Raleigh, N.C., will take a four-shot lead into the final round of the 57th Carolinas Senior Championship. Simson backed up his first-round 64 with a 1-over 73. The 36-time CGA Champion was pleased with his round Thursday at the Golf Club at Briar’s Creek considering the conditions.
"I found it tougher today with the wind and the pins," he said.
Simson is looking to add to his championship total this year with his fourth CGA Title.
"I am going to just play to course tomorrow," he said.
On Simson’s heels, Todd Hendley of Columbus, N.C., is the only player in the field with two rounds under par. He is 3 under after rounds of 71-70. After starting the tournament with an opening nine of 4-over 40, Hendley has gone 7 under in his last 27 holes.
Simson and Hendley will be paired Walter Todd, Sr. of Laurens, S.C., and two-time defending champion Preston Edmondson of Morrisville, N.C., on Friday Todd will start six shots behind Simson. Edmondson will start seven shots back but look to make a charge after his second-round 69.
