Methacton senior Kyle Vance, a two-time District One Class AAA champion, is tied for the lead at the Junior PGA Championship, presented by Under Armour and Genesis Networks, after two rounds at soggy Wannamoisett Country Club in Rumford, R.I.
Vance added a 2-under 67 Wednesday to his opening-round 69 for a 36-hole total of 2-under 136 over the par-69 Wannamoisett layout, a Donald Ross design. The second round was interrupted by a three- hour, 16-minute rain delay, which forced tournament officials to call off play for the day in the girls division, which has been cut back to a 54-hole event.
Vance is tied with Travis Vick of Houston, who fired a 4-under 65 Wednesday to go with his opening-round 71. Vick was the qualifying medalist at the U.S. Junior Amateur at The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tenn. earlier this summer.
Vance, who has had a very good summer on the golf course, qualified for match play in the U.S. Junior Amateur, but lost in the first round of match play.
Kyle Hogan of Cypress, Texas is alone in third place at Wannamoisett with rounds of 70 and 67 for a 1-under 137 total. Norman Xiong of Canyon Lake, Calif. is in fourth place at even-par 138 after rounds of 68and 70.
