Justin Young, Jon Lindstrom Lead On 36 Holes At Golfweek International Mid-Am/Senior Championship

Eighteen holes remain before crowning the 2022 International Mid-Am and Senior champions. Breaking away from the pack, two men walked away in the individual race.

Justin Young has the lead in the middle of the morning. After a four-under opening 68 with a 69 on Saturday, Young jumped from T-2 to just first. Opening up a four-shot lead, Young will have plenty of pursuers hunting him down on Sunday.

Among the chasers is the leader of the first round, Marc Engellener. Posting an opening 67, Engellener stumbled 2-over-74 on Saturday. At 3-under for the tournament, he leads a five-player group hot on Young’s heels.

Philip Reale and Travis Woolf are at 2-under with three more players on par.

The mid-morning part of the crew is simply waiting for the fat lady to stop her vocal practice. The West Virginia team (9 under par) has a 10-shot lead over the closest team, the North Texas team. Cam Roam (T-2), Philip Reale (T-7) and Sam O’Dell (T-12) teamed up for a combined score of 213 under par. After being a countout score on Friday, Pat Carter (T-9) charged a 75 on Saturday.

The South Texas team (2+), the Fort Worth team (3+), and the Alabama team (5+) lurk within striking distance.

On the senior side, Jon Lindstrom has continued to build an impressive week. Starting the tournament with an event-best 66 under par, Lindstrom sat out with an even par 72 on Saturday. Not losing ground, Lindstrom has a one-shot lead heading into the final round.

Hot on his heels is Wes McNulty. He built on his first round of 3-under with another under-par round. Shooting 2-under 70, he now finds himself with a return shot and in prime position to apply pressure to Lindstrom on Sunday.

The two are not only fighting for the individual title, but both are leading their teams towards a shared title.

McNulty’s Team Arkansas, at 2-under, has a two-shot lead over Lindstrom’s Team Colorado. Team North Carolina (East) hides three shots behind Arkansas, while Team Missouri (East) and Team Georgia (South) are up 4 points.

With 18 holes remaining, four championships will be claimed at some of the most beautiful golf properties on Pawleys Island, South Carolina, when it ends on Sunday.
