In the second to last Mid Amateur qualifier of the season, Hingham’s Bud Schultz fired the lowest score of the day and was the only competitor to finish under par on Wednesday as another 16 competitors advanced to next month’s Championship Proper.

The 60-year old Schultz, of Black Rock Country Club, tallied two birdies on the day to one bogey for his top spot on the leaderboard. He recorded his first birdie on the par-5 second hole, but would give it back by making a bogey on the par-4 eighth hole. Schultz would finish the front nine with an even par 36. The back nine was smooth sailing for Schultz as he made all pars, except for a birdie on the 14th hole and ending the day with a 1-under 71.

15 others who finished between 1-over 73 and 5-over 77 also advanced from Wednesday’s qualifier.
