Kiawah Island Wins in Round 2 of Club Pro


PGA of AmericaOn a day when not one of the 154 players in the field broke par at the Island Course at Kiawah Island, Travis Long and Alan Morin stood atop the leaderboard at the PGA Club Professional Championship.
Long shot a 3-over 75 and Morin, one of the first-round co-leaders, managed a 4-over 76 to share the lead at even-par 144.
Jim Sobb shot a 2-over 74 and is alone in third place at 1-over-par 145.
Mark Mielke, the other player to share the lead after Thursday's opening round, struggled to a 6-over 78 on Friday. He is tied for fourth place with Craig Thomas (72), Scott Spence (73), Tim Thelen (74) and Chris Starkjohan (73) at plus-2.
Long, the assistant professional at Southshore Golf Club in Henderson, Nevada, made the turn at even par thanks to a pair of birdies and a pair of bogeys. He traded birdies and bogeys from the 11th, then double-bogeyed the 15th and bogeyed 16.
Morin, the assistant professional at The Falls Country Club in Lake Worth, Florida, dropped shots at one and four, but made up for one of the lost shots with a birdie at the par-5 seventh. He polished off his round with three bogeys in his last five holes, but still shares the lead.
Rich Steinmetz (77), Brett Melton (72), Ron Philo, Jr. (74), Tad Halloway (75), Darrell Kestner (77) and Matt Seitz (73) are knotted in ninth place at 3-over-par 147.
