TORRINGTON, Conn. (July 29, 2013) -- A trio of amateurs highlighted the top 10 after day one, with Jeff Hogan of Watertown Golf Club firing a 4-under par round of 68 and Christopher Swift of Great River Golf Club and Blake Morris of Country Club of Waterbury both shooting 69. Hogan, who is playing in his first Connecticut Open, is hoping to become the first amateur since 2008 to win the title. Jeff Hedden was the last amateur to capture the Connecticut Open, when he won in a playoff at Round Hill Club.

“I really did a good job of hitting it in the right spots and keeping it below the hole,” said Hogan. “I had zero expectations coming into the week and I just wanted to go out, have fun and try to make the cut. To be in this position is exciting- I’m just going to try to go out tomorrow and play my game.”
