Coetzee was at 12 under on the Els Club course at Copperleaf Golf Estate.
A total of 54 out of 156 players were unable to complete their round, including two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal of Spain, who needs to birdie one of his closing two holes to make the cut.
Coetzee won 28 amateur victories before turning pro in 2007.
He says "I enjoyed it and I haven't had this much fun in a long time."
