Clarksville’s Graham Sleigh tied for 13th at 98th Tennessee State Amateur


Tennessee Golf AssociationChattanooga, TN – Clarksville’s Graham Sleigh sits at one-over par, good for a tie for 13th place, after three rounds of the 98th Tennessee State Amateur being played at the Chattanooga Golf and Country Club.

Austin Peay State University golfers Trey Tarpley (73-71-68=212/tie 19th) and Austin Kramer (75-71-72=218/tie 46th) also made it past the top 65 cut line.

Sleigh (72-68-71=211) entered the third round at even par 140 and quickly got to two-under after back-to-back birdies on the second and third holes.

Unfortunately, he gave those shots right back, with bogies on holes four and five, to drop back to even par.

Sleigh would follow the two bogies with eight straight pars before carding a birdy on the 13th hole to get back under par.

It looked like he would go into the final 18 holes of play under par, but recorded a double-bogie five on the 18th hole – his first since the 10th hole of his opening round – to finish at one-over 71.

Hendersonville’s Steven Fox (68-67-68=203) leads the tournament at seven under.

Sleigh will tee off at 8:50am (ET) August 9th on hole one in the final round, along with James Stepp (Kingston Springs, TN) and John Luke Tyner (Collierville, TN).

Kramer will also tee off at 8:50am, but on the 10th hole, while Tarpley tees off on the first hole, at 8:30am.
