Eastern Amateur

Staff report

PORTSMOUTH, Va. — Salisbury’s Logan Shuping missed the cut at the Eastern Amateur Golf Tournament here at Elizabeth Manor Golf and Country Club on Friday.

Shuping, a freshman this fall at East Carolina, shot a 4-over 74 in the second round on the 6,462-yard, par-70 course. Combined with a 76 on Thursday, Shuping had a two-day 150 score and tied for 114th.

The cutline was at 145 and reduced the elite 168-player field of mostly college players to approximately 80.

Shuping, an East Rowan High School graduate and co-Rowan County High School Player of the Year, had three birdies on Friday, including one on the par-5 18th hole.

Shuping’s future teammate at East Carolina, Jackson Spires, fired a 4-under par 66 on Friday and at 133, grabbed a share of second place. Spires, a rising senior for the Pirates, shot a 67 on Thursday.

Ohio State’s Jeg Coughlin shot a sparkling 65 on Friday to take over the lead. Coughlin had a 67 on Thursday and is now 8-under par after two rounds.

Pfeiffer’s Zach Weaver posted a 73 and combined with his even-par 70 on the first day, made the cut.

James Madison-bound Walker Cress, a Concord High School graduate, followed up his 2-under par 68 with a 72 and also made the cut. Cress offset a triple-bogey 8 on the par-5 3rd hole by stringing together three straight birdies on holes 8, 9 and 10.

Lenoir-Rhyne’s David Donovan IV, who fired a 66 on Thursday, came in with a 71 yesterday and is tied for 10th.
