Trio tied for lead at N. Mexico/W. Texas Amateur

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (July 23, 2011) - The second round of the New Mexico- West Texas Amateur Championship turned into a traffic jam on Saturday afternoon as the field came together and found 14 players within five shots of the lead by the end of the day.  Day two saw perfect conditions once again and allowed the field to condense, as several players went low while the leaders came back to the field a bit.  While the opening round saw only four players finish under par, a dozen such rounds were posted on Saturday.

At the top of the leaderboard at two-under par for the tournament is 2011 Albuquerque City Champion Alex Estrada, Belen, N.M., and Zach Fullerton and Patrick Beyhan, both of Albuquerque, N.M.  The trio will play together in the final group at UNM Championship GC.  Following closely behind is a quartet at one-under par, made up of first round leader Jake Spencer, Anthony, N.M., defending champion Daniel Medina, El Paso, Texas, Greg Condon of Monte Vista, Colo., who entered the upper echelon of the event by virtue of his tournament-low round of 67 and Albuquerque's James Lee.

Sunday's final round will be made up of 47 players, the low two-thirds of the field that survived the cut and will tee off at 7:00am.
