Pan falls back; Grillo and Kennedy charge at Southern Amateur

Cheng-Tsung Pan shot his second consecutive 73 to fall seven shots off the lead at the 105th Southern Amateur on Friday.

The IMG alum and University of Washington rising sophomore had a share of the first-round lead following a 67 on the famed par-71 Copperhead Course at Palm Harbor's Innisbrook Resort.

While Pan slipped into a tie for 14th, Emiliano Grillo and Chris Kennedy improved on their first two rounds.

Grillo fired a 3-under par 68 in the third round. Kennedy, a Cardinal Mooney alum and Lakewood Ranch resident, posted a 70.

Grillo attends IMG Academies just like Nick Torrance.

Unlike Grillo, however, Torrance backed up on day three. So did Ben An, the 2009 U.S. Amateur champ.

Both players sit near the bottom of the pack following a 78 and 75, respectively.
