KIAWAH ISLAND — Jarrett Swan, a rising junior at Charleston Southern from Mount Pleasant, continued his steady play Saturday in the 99th Carolinas Golf Association Amateur Championship at Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Ocean Course.
Swan completed a 1-under-par second round Saturday morning in the rain-delayed event, then followed that with another 71 in the afternoon to grab a three-shot lead heading into Sunday’s final round. Swan, the current Charleston Amateur champion, has a 54-hole total of 214, 2 under par.
Carter Jenkins of Raleigh is alone in second at 71—217, while Miller Capps of Denver, N.C., Daniel Claytor of Rocky Mount, N.C., Trace Crowe of Easley and Dalton Ward of Sumter are tied for third at 218.
Zach Seabolt of Raleigh, who was the 36-hole leader at 141, ballooned to an 8-over-par 80 in the third round and dropped to 17th at 221. Seabolt, who shot 37 on the front nine, finished the round with a triple-bogey 6 on the 17th and a double-bogey 6 on the 18th.
There was an approximate one-hour weather delay at 4 p.m. Saturday because of lightning.
Swan birdied his first two holes of the third round, but gave both of those back with a double bogey on the par-4 sixth hole. He got one shot back with a birdie on the fifth, but bogeyed the eighth.
After the weather delay, he finished out with a par on the ninth hole for an even-par 36. He birdied the par-3 14th and par-5 16th but bogeyed the par-4 18th for a 71.
Jenkins, who will be a freshman at UNC Greensboro this fall, had a shot at the lead when he went 4-under through 11 holes. But he finished the round with bogeys on the final three holes.
Sunday’s final round is scheduled for an 8 a.m. start with the leaders teeing off at 9:40 a.m.
