Rick Cloninger takes 2nd-round lead at SCGA Senior Championship

sports@islandpacket.comMay 8, 2014 

After a second-round score of 1-under-par 71 and a two-day total of 143, Rick Cloninger holds the lead heading into the final round of the SCGA Senior Championship at Old Tabby Links on Spring Island in Okatie.

Columbia's Walter Odiorne stands two shots back at 145, and first-round leader Kevin King of Bluffton is tied for third with three others at 147.

Cloninger, the 2012 Senior Champion, had an up-and-down day but came out on top, making five birdies and four bogeys for only the tournament's third under-par round. Par may have been the Fort Mill resident's most important score as he managed to navigate the dangerous par-3 17th and par-4 18th without a blemish.

Joining him in the final group Thursday will be King and Odiorne, who shot the low round of tournament Wednesday with a 2-under 70.

Final round play will begin at 8 a.m. Thursday on the Nos. 1 and 10 tees. The final group will play at 9.30 a.m. off of the No. 1 tee.
