Hot, sunny conditions greeted 156 players on cut day at the 101st Carolinas Amateur Championship. Friday's low round tied The Farm Course's competitive course record. Starting on 10, twenty-year-old Victor Wiggins of Gastonia, N.C. birdied six of his first seven holes. Three birdies with a bogey on his inward nine capped an eight-under-par 64.

"My game has been very good all year... it finally clicked with everything," said Wiggins, a rising junior on the UNC Charlotte's golf team, who this year won the first regional title in program history. "It feels good to go low with the putter."

Combined with his opening round 68, Wiggins holds the 36-hole lead at 12-under-par 132.

The competitive course record was set at the 2011 North Carolina Amateur Championship by Ryan Bell of Charlotte and Ryan Gioffre of Greensboro in the first and second rounds, respectively.

Alone in second place, one stroke behind Wiggins is 17-year-old Doc Redman of Raleigh, N.C. Redman, the 2013 Carolinas Junior Boys' champion, sits at 11-under 133 overall by following his first round 66 with a 5-under 67.

University of Louisville rising junior JD Lehman of Okatie, S.C. and UNC Chapel Hill rising junior Carter Jenkins of Raleigh, N.C. are tied for third at nine-under-par 135. Jenkins is the two-time defending Carolinas Amateur champion. 

Four players are tied in fifth place at 7-under 137 including two-time Carolinas Amateur champion Paul Simson of Raleigh, N.C. 

The field was cut to the top 60 players plus ties for the final two rounds. The cut line fell at 144 (even par) with 62 players making it to the weekend.  The third round is scheduled to begin at 8:00am on Saturday from the #1 and #10 tees.
