Dana Nelson Tops Field at SLC Senior Amateur at Rose Park

Dana Nelson has been near the top of the leaderboard as a senior, but the competition has been keen and he hasn’t won as many memorable titles as he would like. That changed Friday as he topped a strong field to win the Salt Lake City Senior Amateur at Rose Park with a round of 68. Two of the best senior players in the state, Russell Hook and Patrick Murphy, were right on his heels, just one shot back.

Nelson’s 68 came with 34s on each nine. On the front nine he had three birdies and an eagle along with bogeys on one and five. The back nine started with an eagle three.

There were eight players under par and eight players right on par.

The leading scores were as follows:

68- Dana Nelson

69- Russell Hook, Patrick Murphy

70- Kent Gressman, Kurt Jamison

71- Kirk Siddens, Lester Perry, Dave Morris

72- Scott Fairbanks, Scott Hill, Craig Hammer, Ron Cohn, Craig Wilson, Mark Gressman, Ryan Job, Robert Clifton
