While this may only be a three day championship, the play today exemplified that of many moving days. Several players catapulted themselves up the leaderboard, while Round 1 leader, Dan Walters of Winston-Salem, N.C., held his seat at the top. 

 

Walters made a barrage of birdies today that resulted in a 3-under-par, 69 finish on the day and a 8-under-par, 136 overall. Jack Radley of Bear Creek, N.C. climbed up from second place to share the lead with Walters after his second 4-under-par, 68 round of the week, which was also the low round of the day. 

 

Walters started his round on No. 10 and made birdies on Nos. 11, 14 and 16 to get the momentum going. However his best play of the day was an impressive par save on No. 18. 

 

“I hit a perfect 3-wood off the tee and I was in between clubs for my next shot. I was trying to cut a 3-wood into the center of the green and hit a bad shot into the water,” said Walters. “I recovered with a great pitch into the green and made the putt so that was a nice up-and-down.”

 

Walters is familiar with being in the final pairing, but has not captured a CGA title yet. However, he has formulated a game plan out of his experience for the final round tomorrow. 

 

“I’ve been around the lead a bunch which is fun,” said Walters. “You just have to play and if someone else gets it going too then you need to try and chase them down, which makes it fun. I’ve got a chance to win and I’d like to win a golf tournament so we’ll see what happens.”

 

Radley has carded 4-under-par, 68 in both rounds thus far, but his scorecards are far from matching. “Yesterday was easier than today, so I had to work a little bit harder, but it was fun,” he said.

 

The Sanford local found the rough on his first tee shot of the day, but was able to recover with a par on No. 1. The par save was followed by two birdies, which set the tone for his front nine as he cruised in with two more birdies on Nos. 7 and 9. 

 

“The back nine was a grind,” said Radley. “I had two bogeys on the back, but I was able to birdie No. 18 to get it back. It was just a grind honestly, but I’m a local guy and a couple of friends came and met me at the turn which was nice.”


Radley’s approach to the final round is simple. First, keep the driver out of his hands and second, take it one shot at a time. “I did mini tour golf for a couple of years, but it has been a while since I have been in the final pairing at a competitive event. I am really excited,” he said. “The nerves are going to get going tomorrow, but that is what we play for. I’m excited to go out and at least have a chance.”

 

Daniel Neveu of Pinehurst, N.C. will round out the final pairing tomorrow after a 3-under-par, 69 in the second round today. Neveu fired off five birdies on the day to hold third place at 7-under-par, 137 entering the final round just one stroke off of the lead. 

 

2018 North Carolina Mid-Amateur Champion, Matt Kilgo of Charlotte, N.C. is in fourth place at 4-under-par, 140 overall. Scott Park of Charlotte, N.C. is just one stroke behind him at 3-under-par, 141 total. 

 

The final round will begin tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. with starting times off of Nos. 1 and 10. Stay tuned to our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for live coverage of the final round of the 28th North Carolina Mid-Amateur Championship.
