Reigning champion, Steve Harwell of Mooresville, N.C. and Craig Cathey of Burlington, N.C. have taken the lead at 4-under-par, 140 total heading into the final round. 

 

Harwell climbed to the top of the leaderboard from 27th place after a 6-under-par, 66 finish, the low round of the tournament thus far. 

 

“I had a terrible time yesterday with my hands slipping so I wasn’t hitting well,” said Harwell. “I could finally hold on to the club today though and I played some solid golf.”

 

Harwell, reigning CGA Senior Men’s Player of the Year, played a bogey free round with six birdies all while only missing one green. Cathey expressed a similar sentiment of solid play around the greens and mentioned that this course really “suited his game.”

 

Cathey was two strokes off of the lead going into the second round and knew that he needed to putt well to stay that way. He had a dynamic round with three birdies and two bogeys through No. 14. Then his position changed after a birdie on No. 15 that set him tied for second just one shot away from Harwell. 

 

“After I birdied No. 15, I knew that I was close and I wanted to get another birdie coming in,” said Cathey. “I lipped out on No. 17, but then I was able to birdie No. 18 and that was big. I was really happy to see that go in.”

 

That birdie on the eighteenth green sealed his seat in the final group and a tie for first place with a 3-under-par, 69 on the day. 

 

First round leader Sherrill Britt of West End, N.C., James Pearson of Charlotte, N.C. and Steve Liebler of Irmo, S.C. sit in a three-way tie for third. They are all one stroke off of the lead at 3-under-par, 141 total. 

 

2018 Champion Todd Hendley of Columbus, N.C. and Walter Todd of Laurens, S.C. are also in a tie for sixth place at 2-under-par, 142. 

 

There is still a lot of golf to play and with many players within striking distance of the lead, it is still anybody’s game. The field has been cut to the low 60 scorers and ties for the final round. The 59th Carolinas Senior Amateur Championship will continue tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. with tee times running until 10:48 a.m.
