Frye hopes to ace Kivett test

 A high school match on Tuesday and other school-work demands as a junior at High Point Central didn’t give Harrison Frye much time to dwell on his status as leader of the rain-delayed Bud Kivett Memorial City Golf Championship Tournament.
“I’ve been so busy with school that I haven’t had much time to deal with it this week,” Frye said.
That all changed after he got out of school on Friday.
“I‘ve started to prepare and think about what I need to do to practice for it,” Frye said.
Frye will have a 1-shot lead over fellow teenager Tanner Gross with Gary Pugh and Justin Franklin three  shots off the lead when play starts this afternoon at Oak Hollow.
And what will Frye have to do today to keep the lead?
“I’ve played Oak Hollow enough that I know what to expect,” Frye said. “It will all come down to course management.”
The top four will be in the final group of those who had their rounds washed out last Sunday.
Of the 35 players who had their final rounds wiped out, city of High Point director of golf Steve High expects 30 or so to return. The only player in the championship flight who won’t be back is Ryan Wilson, who had a trip to New York City scheduled.
“I’m pleasantly surprised that we didn’t have more people withdraw, given all the activities all these young people have available to them,” High said.
Today’s play begins at 12:48 p.m. with the leaders going off at 1:12.
Today’s forecast is for cloudy skies and a 20 percent chance of rain.
