Tanner Clark Shoots 68, Tops SA Qualifiers by Four Shots at Valley View
Tanner Paul Clark, another unfamiliar name in Utah golf circles, shot a 68 at Valley View and was medalist by four shots in the Utah State Am Qualifying Tuesday. He shot 33 on the front and 35 coming home and had six birdies and two bogeys, one each side. Fred Larsen and Brett Garner played the course in even par.
It was the third State Am qualifying in two days and there are seven more qualifyings to go before the field is full.
The cut broke even with 13 qualifiers shooting 74 or better. Prominent players who missed the cut included Derek Fox, Rob Bachman, Jack Rupe, Kyler Dearden, Cameron Young, Brandon Kida, and Jeff Jerman. There were 84 players for 13 spots. This year the committee is conducting playoffs for the alternate spots and Chris Monson won the playoff for first alternate. Alex Howitt is the second alternate.
The results are listed below. Individual hole-by-hole scorecards for each of the players can be seen by going to this web site and clicking on tournaments, UGA Championships, SA Qualifying at Valley View, then results.
