Rainey, a junior at the College of Charleston, made two bogeys on his way to shooting 69. He and Langdale are both at 16-under-par 200 heading to the final 18 holes.

Mount Pleasant’s Andrew Novak, the current S.C. Amateur and S.C. Amateur Match Play champion, moved into contention with a 5-under-par 67 and is in solo third at 203. Will Long, a junior at Auburn from Gastonia, N.C., shot 67 and is fourth at 204. Charleston Southern’s R.J. Keur is fifth at 72—205.

Langdale, the 2014 Rice Planters Amateur winner, birdied 1, 3, 13, 16 and 18 for nines of 34 and 33.

Rainey offset bogeys on 8 and 13 with birdies at 4, 6, 15, 16 and 18.

Novak, last year’s Rice Planters runner-up and a rising junior at Wofford, had an eagle and six birdies with one bogey.

Keur, who just completed his freshman season at CSU where he won the Big South Tournament individual title, made five birdies, but he also had two bogeys and a triple bogey.

Fifty-seven players made the cut for the final round with scores of 219 or better. The final round starts at 8 a.m. with the leaders scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
