Hill Hanging Onto Slim One-Shot Lead After Two Rounds

August 12, 2009
Hill fires an even-par 72 in round two but retains lead on the strength of his 65 in round one.

Weather has held up play a bit this week; there were a few groups finishing up the last of round two this morning. But Hill will tee off this afternoon and look to stave off some persistent challengers who posted some solid sub-par scores in the second round to draw close.

One such challenger is London, Ontario’s Mitch Sutton:

Two-time Canadian junior champion Mitch Sutton of London, Ont. catapulted himself into second after firing a 6-under par today. Sutton completed his second round and sits at 6-under for the championship.

Sutton, who will join Hill at North Carolina State University in the fall, was humble about his chances of pulling off the win this week.

“Winning will be a tough challenge with Hill and (Nick) Taylor in the field,” said Sutton. “I’ll going to keep playing my game, doing what I do, and we’ll see what happens.”
