Boys golf: Dawson grad Nygren tied for lead at CGA junior stroke play championship

KEYSTONE — Gus Lundquist of the Club at Pradera and recent Alexander Dawson graduate and 3A state runner-up Cole Nygren moved into a share of the lead after Tuesday’s second round of the Colorado Golf Association Junior Stroke Play Championship at Keystone Ranch Golf Course.

Lundquist shot a 1-under-par 71 to check in at 2-over 146 for two rounds. Nygren, who placed second at the Class 3A state golf tournament last fall, also is at that figure following a second-round.

The University of Louisville-bound Lundquist made six birdies Tuesday, but suffered a double bogey on his ninth hole (No. 18). Nygren recorded two birdies and two bogeys in the second round.

First-round leader Ethan Freeman of Glenmoor Country Club, a two-time 3A state high school champ, dropped back to third place at 147 after carding a 77 on Tuesday. He went 5 over par on his first seven holes to fall back in the second round. The field was cut to 40 players for today’s third and final round.
