Veteran mid-amateur Scott Harvey of Kernersville, N.C., broke away from a log-jam with a 4-under-par 66 Thursday to earn the first-round lead in the 102nd Carolinas Amateur Championship being played at the Country Club of Charleston.

Justin Tereshko of Jamestown, N.C., the men’s golf coach at Guilford College, is second at 68 while nine golfers, including Summerville’s Austin Zoller and Chandler Mulkey of Johns Island, are tied for third at 69.

Thirteen players are tied for 12th at even-par 70 including Blake Maull of Charleston, Christian Sease of Mount Pleasant and Julian Keur of Summerville.

There was a nearly two hour weather delay early in the afternoon and at the time Harvey, who had completed his opening nine holes, was one of 14 golfers tied for the lead at 1-under.

The Seth Raynor-designed course is playing to par-70 for the Carolinas Golf Association championship with the fifth hole, normally a par-5, being played as a 499-yard par-4.

Harvey, a property manager and the son of Hall of Fame golfer Bill Harvey, won the Carolinas Amateur in 2011 and is a two-time Carolinas Mid-Amateur champion. He won the 2014 U.S. Mid-Amateur, earning an invitation to compete in the 2015 Masters as well as a spot on the 2015 Walker Cup team.
