Second round play will resume Saturday morning
at The Country Club of Landfall.

After violent winds on Thursday left trees and debris scattered across the Country Club of Landfall property, early Friday morning hundreds of club staff and members helped clear the grounds for play.

Half the field attempted to complete their first round before the championship was halted at 5:30pm Friday due to weather as more lighting and rained moved into the Wilmington area.  

Saturday's Schedule:
Players who have not started their second round will tee off according to their
pairing assignment. Nine groups still on the course are scheduled to resume their second round Saturday morning at 8:30am. After the completion of the round, the cut to low 60 players and ties will be made. The third round will begin with a shotgun start at approximately 2:30pm. 

The CGA will post any tournament delays or cancellations via our Twitter account. Follow @cgagolf1909.

Two players are currently tied for the lead at six-under-par. Six-time CGA champion Carter Jenkins, 19, of Raleigh and Wesley Conover, 22, of Holly Springs each have a few holes remaining in their second round. Both finished tied for third place in last year's championship at Carolina Golf Club in Charlotte. 

David Germann of Clayton, Thomas Eldridge of Raleigh, and David Kocher of Charlotte all posted opening rounds of four-under 68. 2015 NC Open champion Justin Tereshko of Greensboro is at four-under overall with two holes to play to complete his second round. 

Defending champion Josh Martin, 18, of Pinehurst is two-over for the championship with three holes left on his second round. 

The North Carolina Amateur Championship is 72 holes of stroke play. After 36 holes, the field is cut to the low 60 scores and ties.
