Rain slows CPGA Championship for second straight day

Bad weather caused play to be cut short for the second straight day in the Carolinas PGA Professional Championship being held at the Daniel Island Club. Play was halted at 6:45 p.m. Wednesday because of dangerous storms with a few competitors still trying to complete their first round. The scheduled 54-hole tournament has been reduced to 36 holes, with play set to finish today.

Kelly Mitchum of Southern Pines, N.C., and Mike Townsend of Wilmington, N.C., are the leaders through 18 holes at 7-under 65.

The winner of the tournament earns an exemption into one of the 2013 PGA events held in the Carolinas and one of 10 spots up for grabs for the 20013 PGA Professional National Championship.
