Butler Extends Lead to Three at Sizzler Amateur

John Marshall Butler (Louisville, KY), a rising freshman at Auburn University, backed up his tournament-record 64 during Monday’s first round with a 5-under par 67 at Troon North Golf Club on the Monument course.  Hazen Newman (Las Vegas, NV, and Oklahoma State) is three shots back at 10 under par after shooting back-to-back 67s.  Another shot back are two players—local product Tucker Clark (Phoenix) and Christian Banke (Danville, CA) are another shot back at -9.

The Sizzler is in its fourth year and is one of the very first international amateur events being played since most tournaments were shut down in mid-March.  For information on the Troon Saguaro Amateur Series please go to www.SaguaroAmateur.com.  For full results and live scoring for the 2020 Sizzler Amateur please go to www.2020SizzlerAmateur.GolfGenius.com.  The third and final round will commence at 6:30 am local time Wednesday morning.
