Baton Rouge, LA – It was a hot, sunny day during the second round of the 105th Louisiana Amateur Championship. There was a lot of movement on the leaderboard, making for an interesting third round tomorrow morning. After today’s round, a cut to the top 60 players and ties took place. Leading the leaderboard is Michael Ferrer of Covington, who carded a second round score of 69, putting him at seven shots under par and four shots ahead of the rest of the field. Ferrer had a phenomenal front nine at CCLA, going bogey-free and carding four birdies. He also had an eagle on hole 11, followed by some up-and-down holes, finishing with a 37 on the back nine.

Sitting in a four-way tie for second are Greg Berthelot of Baton Rouge, Ryan Dupuy of Baton Rouge, Walter Anderson of Baton Rouge, and Patrick Blaum of Covington, all with an overall score of three-under par going into tomorrow’s third round of the 105th Louisiana Amateur Championship.

It will be an intense competition going into this weekend. With 36 holes left to play, the trophy still has the potential to end up in any player’s hands. Tee times for the third round of the 105th Louisiana Amateur Championship will begin tomorrow.
