WILMINGTON, N.C. – Second day recap of the 55th North Carolina Amateur Championship hosted by The Country Club of Landfall (Nicklaus Course) in Wilmington, NC on Friday, June 19, 2015 (6930 yards, Par 36-36—72, Rating: 74.3/142).
Second round play will resume Saturday morning at The Country Club of Landfall (hopefully under sunny conditions).
After violent winds on Thursday left trees and debris scattered across The Country Club of Landfall property, early Friday morning hundreds of club staff and members helped clear the grounds for play.
Half the field attempted to complete their first round before the championship was halted at 5:30pm Friday due to weather as more lighting and rained moved into the Wilmington area.
Players who have not started their second round will tee off according to their pairing assignment. Nine groups still on the course are scheduled to resume their second round Saturday morning at 8:30am. After the completion of the round, the cut to low 60 players and ties will be made. The third round will begin with a shotgun start at approximately 2:30pm.
