PRATTVILLE, Ala. (WKRG) — After a three-hour delay pushed back tee times on Friday morning, Mobile, Alabama native Robby Shelton carded a 5-under 67 to lead by 3 strokes at 12-under 132 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Championship.
With the morning delay, caused by heavy rainfall on Thursday night, half of the field did not finish their second round as play was suspended due to darkness at 7:16 p.m. at The Senator Course.
“Today was one of the toughest rounds I’ve ever played,” said Shelton, referring to the winds with gusts up to 30 miles per hour. “I just kept hitting it close. I had a lot of looks and a lot of guys didn’t. I had a few putts fall as well, but this wind was tough…This is the first time I’ve played the course like this, it’s not very often the weather is like this in April.”
Robby played college golf at the University of Alabama and high school golf at St. Paul’s.
Another St. Paul’s grad, Zack Sucher, is 1 under mid-way through his 2nd round.
