TORRINGTON, Conn. (July 30, 2013) -- After trailing by only one stroke following an impressive 68 on day one, Jeff Hogan of Watertown Golf Club currently stands tied for the low amateur with Blake Morris of the Country Club of Waterbury. Hogan, a rising Junior at Fordham University, shot a round of one-over 73. Hogan is playing in his first Connecticut Open and despite finishing his round with a double bogey five on the par-3 17th, he stands just seven strokes back of the leader.
Also looking to capture the Low Amateur honor and his first CSGA Championship title is Blake Morris, who fired a round of one under-par 71 to jump into a tie for eighth. Morris is hoping to add the Connecticut Open title to his already impressive resume. Morris currently attends Ole Miss University, where he led the team’s scoring average, and recently qualified for the U.S. Amateur Championship, which will begin next week at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass.
Both Hogan and Morris are hoping to make a big move in the final round, and are seeking to become the first amateur since 2008 to win the Connecticut Open Championship.
