Sam Love’s 65 during a rainy Thursday lifted him to 5 under and the second-round lead of the Palmetto Amateur in Aiken, S.C.
Scott Strohmeyer, part of Alabama’s NCAA Championship team last week, moved up six spots to tie for second with Monday qualifier Carson Jacobs; they’re one shot back of Love. Another shot back, Nicholas Reach, Ben Fogler, and Jeremy Grab are T-4.
First-round leader Davin White shot 74 to fall to T-8. Jacobs was T-2 a day earlier along with Ryan Eibner, who shot 75 to fall to T-16 after two rounds.
Ten players finished the first two rounds under par at the par-70 Palmetto GC.
