POLK CITY, Iowa (July 24, 2018) – After 36 holes at the Tournament Club of Iowa, Trevor Ullestad has found his way to the top of the leaderboard. The recent University of Missouri graduate is going for a title defense at the 116th Iowa Amateur.

Ullestad, who hails from Jewell, Iowa, posted a second-round 2-under 69 to get to 3 under for the tournament. He would have had the outright lead but for a bogey on the last hole. Instead Ullestad shares the top spot with Tripp Kenney of Des Moines, who went bogey-free for a 4-under 67 on Tuesday.

A year ago, Ullestad bested Broc Everett at this tournament after charging through the final round with a 3-under 69. Everett went on to win the individual title at this year’s NCAA Championship and has since turned professional.

First-round leader Andrew Husemen, of Ankeny, fell from 67 to 74 in the second round. He is tied for third with Matthew Walker, who got to 1 under with rounds of 71-70.

Ryoto Furuya of Iowa City and Jon Brown are both at even par to round out the top 5. One round remains before a champion is named.
