ETA building toward another close finish10:25 pm | July 6, 2013
With eight rounds under par Friday and a number of strong scores Saturday, the final round of the East Tennessee Amateur could be another down-to-the-wire showdown.
Competition certainly brought the best out of the final group to take Elizabethton Golf Course during Saturday’s second round — following with tradition, according to tournament director Mike Matheson.
“We have an awful lot of good players that come, it gets tight and that’s what it’s all about,” said Matheson. “You want to see the guys play good and that’s what they seem to always do.”
Bryan Sangid stole the show in the first round with an eight-under par 64 — and Lucas Armstrong did the same Saturday.
