Kyle Bearden of Barnwell posted a second-round score of four-under par 68 to take the lead of the 42nd Mid-Amateur Championship. Overall, he is seven-under par 137 for the tournament and holds a two-shot lead heading into the final round.


“It was an eventful day to be honest,” said Bearden. “I made a good putt for eagle on the first par five on the back, grinded out some pars and made a good birdie on 17. All in all, it was a pretty solid round, but l think going back and playing the harder of the two courses tomorrow will be good. I’m just going to try and keep it in front of me tomorrow, give myself as many birdie opportunities as possible and see if I can get it done.”


Chandler Mulkey of Johns Island, Jon Weiss of Florence sit tied for second at five-under par 139 overall for the tournament.


Josh Branyon of Honea Path and Matt Oquinn of Beaufort sit T4, each finishing round two at four-under par 140 overall.
