Two tied for Sunnehanna Amateur lead after three rounds

Paul Schofield

The final round of the 66th Annual Sunnehanna Amateur could be suspenseful.

Returning champion Alex Smalley of Duke and third-round leader Spencer Soosman of Texas are deadlocked going into Saturday after three rounds at 6-under-par 204.

Smalley shot a 4-under 66, and Soosman a 1-under 69 during Friday’s third round.

Tied for third at 2-under are Pepperdine’s Joe Highsmith and Yale’s James Nicholas.

Franklin Regional graduate Palmer Jackson made the cut after a 2-over 72. The Notre Dame recruit is 5-over and tied for 32nd.

Three local players: Oakmont’s Sean Knapp, Peters Township’s Connor Schmidt and Greensburg’s Kevin Fajt didn’t make the cut.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
