LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --- Six players are under par after two rounds of the 104th Kentucky State Amateur Championship at Big Spring Country Club in Louisville. The first-round leader is also the second round leader.
Morehead State golfer Logan Hogge of Salt Lick followed up his opening round 68 with a two-under 70. He enters the third and final round with a two-shot advantage over J.B. Williams of Danville. The University of Akron player had a one-under 71 Wednesday. Joshua Rhodes from Paducah is tied at two-under with Tyler "Chip" McDaniel the 2013 champion from Manchester who just finished his Freshman year at UK. A pair of Louisville golfers round out the top six, James Inman who had a 73 and Copper Musselman who shot a 71 on his home course.
13-year-old Louisvillian Drew Doyle acquitted himself quite well. We learned Wednesday that he was actually the second-youngest player to compete in the State Am, not the youngest as we reported earlier. The 8th-grader-to-be at St. Patrick is about a month older than Fred Allen Meyer when he played in the 2009 event. Doyle had an 83 in Tuesday's opening round, but bounced back with a two-over 74 Wednesday. He missed the cut by two shots. His 19-year-old brother Brendon is tied for 8th at one-over after second-round 71.
They'll go out in threesomes Thursday, with the leaders teeing off at 10:00 am.
