Sanders leads the pack at Alaska State Amateur Golf Tournament

By KTVA Sports 9:16 AM July 13, 2014
It’s his to lose: Greg Sanders is one round away from claiming his second Alaska State Amateur Golf Tournament in three years.
The 2012 champion carded the only under-par round of the day on Saturday at Settler’s Bay Golf Course in Wasilla with a one-under 70.
That makes it three straight rounds under par for Sanders. His 67 on Thursday, 68 on Friday and 70 on Saturday had him a staggering 12 shots ahead of Kevin Daniels, whose 72 was the next best score in the field.
Last year’s winner Adam Baxter began the day five shots behind Sanders, after each rolled in dueling 68s on Friday.
But Sanders was steady again Saturday with a 70 while Baxter slipped to a 77, effectively ending his hopes for a repeat title.
“The course is in great condition, the greens are rolling amazingly compared to anywhere else that I’ve played around here.  It seems pretty fair. It’s a great course.” said Aaron Roth, whose 75 had him in 12th place.
David Hamilton and Michael Sullivan round out the top five. Rose Pelletier is the leading lady at 13 over par, followed by Cathy Shuttleworth.
The final round begins Sunday morning just after 8:00 a.m.
