    KENNESAW — For the past three years, Dalton’s David Noll Jr. and Augusta’s Lee Knox have alternated Georgia Amateur titles, with Knox taking the titles in 2010 and 2012 and Noll grabbing it 2011.
    That’s why it’s only fitting that Noll now sits atop the leaderboard at 4-under 138, after the conclusion of Friday’s second round at Pinetree Country Club.

    Area sports fans are familiar with local golfer David Noll Jr. An eight-time winner of the Georgia State Golf Association’s Men’s Player of the Year award and winner of the last six straight, Noll has made quite a name for himself around the state and the southeast with his play as part of state teams.
    No offense to Noll, but in state golf terms, he is merely the male version of Augusta’s Laura Coble.
