Two make Southern Amateur cut
Luke Long of Fayetteville and Peyton Wilhoit of Searcy made the even-par cut Thursday at the 111th annual Southern Amateur Championship at the Country Club of North Carolina in Pinehurst.
Long started his round on No. 10 and was 2 over at the turn. He made birdie on four of his final six holes, finishing the front nine with a 4-under 32 and a 1-under 71 for the round that led to a two-day total of 2-under 142.
Wilhoit began his second round at even par and raced out to a 5-under 31 on the front nine that included three birdies and an eagle at the par-5 5th. Four bogeys on the back nine led to a 40, but his 1-under 71 was still good enough to advance.
Arkansans missing the cut were Carson Roberts of Conway and Garrett May of Hope.
