Devin Jackson Maintains Lead at North Amateur
Anna, TX – Devin Jackson backs up his first round lead with a two-under-par, 70 to keep the lead headed in the Final Round of the North Amateur at Hurricane Creek Country Club. Hunter Shattucks’s six-under-par, 66 moves him to within one of the lead.
Devin Jackson, Longview, started his day with six straight pars before he could extend his lead on the 194 yard par three, 16th. That birdie didn’t last long as it was erased with a bogey on the 18th hole as he made the turn. His back side, which was the front nine, though began the same way he started his day yesterday, birdies on the first and second holes. A bogey on the 211 yard par three, fifth was answered right away with a birdie on the downhill par five, sixth. Pars from there allowed Jackson to reach nine-under-par for the championship and a one shot lead of the field.
Hunter Shattuck’s round of six-under-par 66 turned out to be the low round of the day that skyrocketed him to a solo second position. Shattuck began his round five shots back of leader Jackson. His deficit was quickly cut to two with birdies on the 11th, 16th and 17th holes. His momentum kept going as he rolled in three more right in a row on holes one through three. The Jacksonville native was six-under-par before he bogeyed the 5th. He poured one more in on the ninth to get back to his six-under-par round and eight under for the championship.
Aaron Hickman, Tyler, kept pace with Jackson by firing his own two-under-par round for a two-day total of 137, seven under for the championship. Hickman who already captured the 2016 North Mid-Am Championship this season, opened his day with a birdie on the first hole. A bogey on the third brought him back to even before he birdied two of the last four holes coming in. Including the ninth hole, Hickman recorded ten straight pars to maintain his red figure for the day.
Rounding out the top five on the leaderboard are Addison’s Sean Heidrick, Justin’s Brandon Scott and Dallas’ Levi Petiti. Heidrick and Scott both fired rounds of two-under-par to gain entry into the North Amateur’s penultimate group. Petit kept himself at level par for the day to maintain his position. Also, in the tied for 5th position was Dallas’ Rob Couture whose four-under-par round got him to five-under for the tournament.
Jackson, Shattuck and Hickman will battle it out tomorrow along the rest of the field to see who will become the North Amateur Champion. Hickman can become just the second player to recorded two individual North Regional Titles in the same year since Rob Couture did it in 2009.
Hurricane Creek Country Club played to 7,083 yards for the 2nd round of the North Amateur with scores averaging at about 76, four over par. The 2nd hole played easiest on the day with four eagles and numerous birdies. The 5th hole played hardest with just three birdies recorded all day.
Tee times will once again begin off the first and tenth tee starting at 7:30. Jackson, Shattuck and Hickman will go off at 9:27 off the first. For complete results from the North Amateur, please click here
