SAUKVILLE, WI (July 23, 2013) — Last week, Jordan Niebrugge played 150 holes of golf on his way to a victory at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. Even with a day off it would be hard to argue if he was a little rusty during the first round of the 112th Wisconsin State Amateur Championship sponsored by CliftonLarsonAllen at The Bog in Saukville.
It now seems as though Niebrugge regained his championship form from a week ago.
Niebrugge cruised around the difficult course setup at The Bog, posting a 6-under par 66 in his second round. He is now seven shots ahead of second place and Josh Udelhofen and Cody Strang. Udelhofen dropped one shot during the second round and is at 2-under for the championship. Strang shot even par to remain at 2-under.
The par fives were especially friendly to Niebrugge, who had six birdies and no bogeys during his second round. Three of those birdies came on the par fives.
Niebrugge’s 66 was the low score of the day and the lowest round shot thus far during the championship.
71 players made the 36 hole cut and play will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 24.
