McCoy take two shot lead into final round of 39th Iowa Mid-Amateur

More of the same.

Nate McCoy (-5), following an opening round 68, followed up with a steady 71 on Thursday, to take a two shot advantage into the final round of the 39th Iowa Mid-Amateur Championship hosted by Bos Landen Golf Course in Pella.

J.D. Anderson and Trent Lindenman both find themselves chasing McCoy at -3 through two rounds of play. Many players found the course holding its own all day on Thursday, including McCoy (pictured above).

“I felt the course played a little tougher today,” McCoy admitted after his round. “I three putted a couple times which also didn’t help. I am just going to try to keep hitting it in the fairway (tomorrow) and on the greens and see what happens. We have had a lovely week to play that’s for sure.”

Jon Brown leads by six shots in the Senior Division, following a crafty 70 (-2) in the second round. Brown’s round include four birdies, on a day when they were hard to come by for the field.

In the Super Senior Division Dave Gaer and Dave Waugh remain tied for the lead at 152 (+8) through two rounds. Keith Levi trails Gaer and Waugh by only two and will look to make a charge on Friday.
