Bluffton’s Bryson Nimmer had a tough day in the second round of the Northeast Amateur on Thursday.
Nimmer shot 6-over-par 75 at Wannamoisett Country Club in Rumford, Rhode Island, and is tied for 59th at 5-over at the tournament’s halfway mark.
After carding a 1-under-par 68 on Wednesday, Nimmer held things together for most of the front nine Thursday. He made a bogey at the par-4 second but came back with birdie on the par-4 sixth to remain at 1-under for the tournament.
Beginning with a double-bogey at the par-3 eighth, though, Nimmer went 5-over for a stretch of five holes before making birdie at No. 13 for the second straight day. He couldn’t sustain the positive momentum, though, and bogeyed two of his last four holes.
Theo Humphrey of Greenwich, Connecticut, leads the tournament at 10-under-par, one shot ahead of Collin Morikawa and Doug Ghim.
The field will be cut to the low 55 players and ties after Friday’s third round. Nimmer is scheduled to tee off at 9:14 a.m.
