Preston Summerhays' 14 birdies too much for USU's Chase Lansford in State Amateur finals

MIDWAY — As a surprise finalist at the 121st annual Utah Men’s State Amateur, Chase Lansford couldn’t have played much better Saturday.

The 24-year-old Texas native, who will be a senior on the Utah State golf team this fall, shot under par for 30 holes and felt he only had one bad hole in Saturday’s scheduled 36-hole final. The problem was, he just couldn’t keep up with 16-year-old Preston Summerhays, who put on a spectacular show with a barrage of birdies in winning his second straight State Am title with a decisive 7 and 6 victory at Soldier Hollow Golf Course.
