BRUNSWICK – Jack Wyman put together one of the best front nine performances any golfer has ever put forth at Brunswick Golf Club, and it was enough to earn him the top spot on the leaderboard headed into Day 3 of the 98th Maine Amateur Championship.
A 29 through the first half of play Wednesday saw Wyman challenge the course record, but he would come back to Earth a bit on the back nine. He would ultimately notch a 68 on the day, putting him in first place at 7-under with one more round of golf to play.
“I played the front nine great,” he said after the round. “I was 6-under. I missed a baby one on the 9th hole to be 7-under at the turn, so I was really feeling it. But I stumbled at the end unfortunately. Missed a short one there. But still in a good position.”
Husson graduate and current MSGA president Joe Alvarez also shot a 68 on the day, and trails Wyman by three strokes.
