Aden Faddis, a Purple Hurricanes' golfer, didn't do as well as he expected and missed the cut by a couple of shots, ending his day after 18 holes.
"No. 9 was a tough hole," Faddis said of one hole that gave him trouble. "It was just off to the right ... I couldn't see over there."
The 17-year-old began the day with 90 other hopefuls seeking a spot at next month's U.S. Junior Amateur Championship.
Sam Straka of Valdosta shot the low round of the day, a 6-under-par 66, in the second round to finish at 5-under-par 139 and earn medalist honors. His 66 included seven birdies and an eagle with three bogeys.
Also qualifying for the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship were Austin Vick of Evans (143), Oliver Schniederjans of Powder Springs (144), Bobby Wyatt of Mobile, Ala., (144) and Kevin Lee of Dacula (146).
Ted Moon of Lilburn (147) and Anders Albertson of Woodstock (148) earned first and second alternate spots, respectively.
The field was cut to the low 30 percent and ties after the first round, with the cutline falling at seven-over-par 79 and 29 players advancing.
Pinetree Country Club, one of 63 qualifying sites nationwide, played to 7,108 yards and a par of 72.
The 63rd annual U.S. Junior Amateur Championship will be held at Egypt Valley Country Club in Ada, Mich., July 19-24.
"I actually played pretty good," Faddis said, summing up his day. "It's just one of those days that didn't come together."
Faddis, a rising Cartersville High senior, said his next tournament will be the Southeastern Tournament in Pratville, Ala., in a few weekends.
