Lambert Grabs Lead after Round 1
(Round 1 of 2)
(Myrtle Beach, SC) – Scott Lambert, a PGA apprentice at Mill Creek Golf Club in Mebane, NC, has taken a two shot lead after the first round of the National Car Rental Carolinas PGA Assistant Championship supported by Kirk & Matz. The 36-hole championship is being contested over Monday & Tuesday, August 4th & 5th at the Resort Club at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Lambert carded a 5-under par 67, with 6 birdies and 1 bogey during his round. That’s quite an accomplishment, considering the players had to endure about an hour’s worth of heavy rain during the early afternoon. The rain halted just in time for the golf course to still be playable, enabling the field of 71 to finish first round play.
The National Car Rental Carolinas PGA Assistant Championship supported by Kirk & Matz brings together PGA assistant professionals and apprentices from all over North and South Carolina. The competitors are vying for a chance to qualify for the 38th National Car Rental PGA Assistant Championship, Oct. 30 – Nov. 2, at PGA Golf Club (Wanamaker Course) in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Five qualifying spots are availble to the field, along with three alternate positions.
There is a three-way tie for second place at 3-under par 69 that includes PGA apprentice Luke McClellan of Chechessee Creek Club in Okatie, SC, PGA apprentice Rohan Allwood of the Woodlands Country Club in Columbia, SC, and Ben Burkhalter, PGA of Forsyth Country Club in Winston-Salem, NC. There are quite a few players in the hunt, as 21 players sit at even par or better after round one. PGA apprentice Ray Franz of Daniel Island Club in South Carolina is the only competitor in the field who is exempt from qualifying for his top-4 finish at the 37th PGA Assistant Championship last year. Franz is currently tied for 28th with a 2-over par 74.
The second and final round begins tomorrow at 7:45 AM at the Resort Club at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach. Competitors are teeing off from both #1 & #10 tees, with the leaders starting at 9:24 AM off #1.
