By Megan Terry


Brett Sampson carded an opening-round score of 65 (-5) at Logan Golf & Country Club to start the weekend strong and top the Utah Senior Amateur Championship leaderboard. Sampson posted a 33 on the front nine with zero bogeys and birdies on Nos. 3,4, and 8. Despite one bogey on the par-4 No. 16, he started the back nine hot with back to back birdies on 10 and 11 and managed another birdie on 15 to card two-under 32 on the back.

2015 UGA Senior Men’s Player of the Year Craig Wilson sits four shots behind Sampson at one-under 69. Wilson shot 37 (+1) on the front and turned things around on the back with birdies on 15, 16, and 18 to card two-under 32 on the back.
