MEQUON, Wisc. (July 22, 2014) -- Robbie Ziegler followed his first-round 66 with a 1-over 71 and holds a five-shot lead at the 113th Wisconsin State Amateur.

At Ozaukee Country Club, Ziegler is five shots up on Christopher Colla entering the third of four rounds in the 72-hole stroke-play event.

Joe Weber, Mitchell Johnson, Brandon Cloete, Tyler Schmude and Zach Gaugert are all tied for third and still very much in the hunt.

Last year's champion, Jordan Niebrugge, who won the event in between victories at the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship and the prestigious Western Amateur, is not in the field this year.

ABOUT THE Wisconsin State Amateur

This event has been conducted annually since 1901. The format, originally match play, was changed to a 72-hole stroke-play event in 1971. The State Amateur, contested over four consecutive days, is annually conducted on one of Wisconsin’s finest courses and continues to be recognized as the premier amateur tournament held in Wisconsin. A three-man team competition, the Yule Cup, where players representing the same club compete for the Cup, is also held. To be eligible, players must have a WSGA Handicap Index of 9.4 or less.
