The top of the leaderboard had a decidedly local flavor.
Pettersson went to high school in Greensboro, calls Raleigh home, and both he and Clark played at North Carolina State. Mathis grew up in Winston-Salem, went to Campbell and lives north of Raleigh.
Pettersson, a Swede who became an American citizen during the offseason, had his best round at the Wyndham since 2008, when he set the tournament record with a second-round 61 and went on to win in his adopted hometown.
