MOBILE, AL (May 15, 2021) – Second round results of the 24th Alabama State Senior Amateur Championship and 3rd Alabama State Super-Senior Amateur Championship of the Alabama Golf Association hosted by The Country Club of Mobile in Mobile, AL on Saturday, May 15, 2021 (6359 yards (Senior); 5682 yards (Super-Senior), Course/Slope Rating: 70.8/126 (Senior); 67.8/120 (Super-Senior).
Doug McLeod of Mobile leaps atop the 24th Alabama State Senior Amateur Championship leaderboard with his second, consecutive 69. He remains one-stroke ahead, with a two-under 138 overall. To secure his solid finish, he shot 30 on the back nine.
“I’m kind of a rhythm golfer, and if I get in the rhythm, I can shoot some pretty good numbers,” McLeod says. “On the backside, I loosened my grip, slowed my swing down a bit and a few putts fell. It’s been a while since I’ve played competitive golf, but I guess it’s contagious when putts start falling.”
