Jacksonville's Rick Morton Drops Back At Carolinas Open

(North Myrtle Beach, SC) - Amateur Jack Fields of Southern Pines, NC holds the lead after two rounds at the 87th Horry County State Bank Carolinas Open being held at the Surf Golf & Beach Club in North Myrtle Beach, SC.

After the first round, Fields sat in an eight-way tie for ninth place with an opening score of 70 (-1). He closed the three-stroke deficit to one quickly by sinking an eagle 3 on the 493-yard par-5 Hole #1. Fields scored four more birdies and an additional eagle 2 on the 317-yard par-4 Hole #11. A single bogey on Hole #13 brought him home with an impressive 33-31=64 (-7) to total 134 (-8).

Colby Wilson (Hilton Head Island, SC) and Rick Lewallen, PGA (Kannapolis, NC) are tied for second place at 136 (-6). Right behind, sit two-time Carolinas Open Champion Kelly Mitchum, PGA (Pinehurst CC No. 1-5), J.D. Bass (Pinewood CC), and Nick Jacobi, PGA (Badin Inn Golf Resort & Club) at 137 (-5).

Morning rounds were delayed 30 minutes due to substantial thunderstorms that ripped through the Grand Strand overnight. The Surf Golf & Beach Club's impressive maintenance staff was fortunately able to return the course to its usual pristine condition.
67 players finished at 148 (+6) or better and survived the 36-hole cut. The final round will begin tomorrow, on Thursday, May 12, at 7:30 AM and conclude at approximately 12:45 PM.
