COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (August 5, 2017) -- Glenn Workman has already put together a stellar summer, golf-wise, but when it comes to success, the more the merrier.
The University of Wyoming golfer, who plays out of Desert Hawk at Pueblo West, has put himself in position to add the CGA Amateur Championship title to his list of accomplishments this year as he will take a three-stroke lead into Sunday's final round at the Sonnenalp Club in Edwards.
On a day in which just one player -- Isaac Petersilie of Colorado Springs Country Club -- shot in the 60s -- Workman finished Saturday's round where he started it, up by three. The 21-year-old two-putted for birdie on the final hole to shoot a 1-over-par 72, which left him with a 4-under-par 209 total.
So far this summer, Workman has won the Wyoming State Amateur, finished low amateur in the Wyoming State Open and runner-up in the Wyoming State Match Play, won the Springer tournament in Colorado Springs and placed second in the Pueblo city championship.
Only one player besides Workman is under par through 54 holes at Sonnenalp. Cole Nygren of Colorado National Golf Club, who finished fifth in the CGA Amateur last year, overcame a lost-ball double bogey on the 11th hole to shoot an even-par 71. The recent Cal Poly graduate, who is playing in one of his final amateur tournaments, stands at 1-under 212 after a day which included four birdies, two bogeys and a double.
Three local college players checked in at even-par 213 through three rounds: Colorado State University's Jake Staiano of Glenmoor Country Club, the University of Denver's Petersilie, and the University of Northern Colorado's Sam Marley, who plays out of South Suburban Golf Course.
Petersilie carded six birdies and three bogeys in his 3-under-par 68, while Staiano had a 71 and Marley a 72.
In all, eight players will go into the final round within five strokes of Workman.
The lead group of Workman, Nygren and Petersilie will tee off for Sunday's final round at 9:10 a.m., while Staiano, Marley and Trevor Glen of Legacy Ridge Golf Course will tee it up at 9 a.m.
