In the Bell Division, after round one, Savanah Goodman (2016, Easley, SC) seeks her second PKBGT title of the year behind a strong opening round of two-over par 73.  One shot back is Savannah Gowarty (2015, Raleigh, NC).  Six players sit two off the lead, including 2014 PKBGT champions Emilia Migliaccio (2017, Cary, NC) and Jaelyn Tindal (2015, Rock Hill, SC).  In all, 15 players sit within 4 shots of the lead going into the final round in the Bell Division.
