FARMINGTON -- The final round of the 2011 Utah Open is shaping up for a shootout.
2007 Utah Open champion Clay Ogden, a Farmington resident, will battle Coloradoans Zenon Brown and Derek Tolan in today's final round at the 6,917-yard Oakridge Country Club.
The leaders will tee off just after noon in $150,000 tourmanent.
Both Brown and Tolan shot seven-under pars on Saturday to shoot up the leaderboard under sizzling skies. Brown sits at 12-under 132, a shot ahead of Tolan and Ogden who was shared the first-round lead.
Brown birdied Nos. 15, 16 and 17 to gain the one-shot lead.
There are plenty of talented golfers within distance of the trophy.
That includes Ryan Ellis, Adrian Wadey and James Drew at 134, Dustin Pimm, Dusty Fielding and Chris Satterlee, who was tied atop the leaderboard with Ogden after Friday's opening round, at 135.
A group at 136 includes Top of Utah veterans Luke Swilor, Dustin Volk, Joe Summerhays and Mike Branca, along with BYU golfer Devon Purser, the low amateur in the event.
Purser, who prepped at Syracuse High, followed up his opening 69 with a 67.
Defending champion Nicholas Mason and 2010 runner-up Nathan Lashley are at 137, just five shots off the lead.
BYU's Zac Blair is among those at 138, a shot ahead of his father, James Blair, who won the tournament in 1981.
Veterans Boyd Summerhays, Steve Schneiter and Brett Wayment top a large group at 140.
Ogden and the rest are chasing the $20,000 first prize. The top 54 golfers and ties advanced to today's final round.
Ogden finished fifth in 2008 and fourth in 2009.
A year ago, Mason led the tournament by as many as five shots but Lashley, the defending champ at the time, started firing birdies and the lead narrowed
Mason won by a shot after shooting a final-round 71.
The next five finishers in the 2010 tournament shot rounds of 64, 65, 66, 64 and 66.
Expect the same kind of shootout this afternoon.
