Summerville’s Austin Zoller takes Carolinas Amateur lead

Summerville’s Austin Zoller, who just completed his freshman season at Winthrop, shot a 3-under-par 67 Friday and earned a two-shot lead at the midway point of the Carolinas Amateur Championship being played at the Country Club of Charleston.

Zoller is at 4-under-par 136 with four players tied for second including Summerville native and Charleston Southern golfer R.J. Keur, who posted a 68. Christian Sease of Mount Pleasant, who also played for Winthrop, is tied for sixth at 139.

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.

First-round leader Scott Harvey of Jamestown, N.C., struggled Friday and shot 75 for a 141 total and is tied for 20th.

It took a score of 145, 5 over par, to make the cut for the final two rounds. Saturday’s tee times begin at 8 a.m. off both 1 and 10 with the leaders starting off No. 1 at 9:40 a.m.

Zoller said he played smart both days but Friday “I just had a few better misses.”

Zoller made his only bogey of the day on the fifth hole, but got that back with a birdie on No. 9 and added birdies at 12, 15 and 17.
