Jeon Leads Sonny Braun Art City Amateur With 63

Seokown Jeon made a double bogey and a bogey in the first round of the Art City Amateur and the reason those miscues are mentioned first is to emphasize how well he played otherwise. Despite those two glitches he shot a 63 and has a two-shot lead going into the final round of the always exciting, newly named Sonny Braun Art City Amateur.

He played the back nine first and shot a 28 and then on the front nine he bogeyed six and double bogeyed seven and still shot 35.

As good as a he played he isn’t out of reach of a very strong field nipping on his heels. Shootings 65s, and earning spots in the final foursome are Jason Hargett, Kurt Owen, and Robbie Fillmore.

Also still very much in contention are Brandon Hargett and Travis Miner with 67s and C.J. Lee with a 68.

Hobble Creek is the home course of the Hargett brothers who are always in contention. Brandon won the Art City Amateur in 2013 and Jason won the UGA Mid-Amateur at Hobble Creek last year.

It will be another exciting finish at Hobble Creek Sunday.
