The Covington News - - WORLD -

KARUIZAWA, Ja­pan (AP) — Ge­or­gia sopho­more Jaime Lopez Ri­varola shot a 5-un­der 66 on Thurs­day to help Ar­gentina take the sec­ond-round lead in the World Am­a­teur Team Cham­pi­onship.

Ale­jan­dro Tosti added a 67 on Karuizawa 72 Golf East’s Oshi­tate Course to give Ar­gentina an 18-un­der 268 to­tal. Ma­tias Si­maski had a 70, with only the top two scores count­ing in the team to­tal.

“We planned our round to try and come out strong from the start,” said Ri­varola. “We knew the back nine at Oshi­tate was more ac­ces­si­ble than the front and we did a re­ally good job with some good birdies from 10 to 18.”

The United States was a stroke back along with Swe­den and Switzer­land.
