Calif. State Fair: Going low in Sacto!
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Aug 30, 2014) -- The California State fair teed off today at the classic Alister MacKenzie course at Haggin Oaks.

KK Limbhasut (profile) and Corey Pereira (profile) got off to torrid starts, posting rounds of 7-under 65 to share the early lead. Limbhasut, 18, is from Loma Linda; earlier this summer he won the prestigious Western Junior. The Thailand native is an incoming freshman on the Cal Berkeley golf team. Pereira, from Cameron Park, plays for University of Washington. He had a breakthrough with a runner-up finish at the Sahalee Players and huge win at the Pacific Coast Amateur.

Four players are tied at 67 with two rounds left to play. Lynne Cowan of, who is currently competing in the Women's State Fair (she shot 74 today) will be out to cover the Men on Monday since her event is just 36 holes. Stay tuned for more from
