MIDWAY -- Two different course; two wildly different scoring outcomes.
Following Wednesday's opening round of the 113th Utah State Amateur at Soldier Hollow Golf Course, the leaderboard is packed with golfers who got their first 18 holes in on the Silver Course.
The consolation to the other half of the field is that they'll play the Silver Course today, while the rest play the surly Gold Course.
Mike Branca and John Busby -- sons of Utah golf pros -- posted six under par 66s to lead all players after the first round, and Nic Booth shot a 67, but all three will take on the Gold Course, which produced 23 of the highest 24 scores on opening day.
Conversely, of the 33 players who finished under par, 26 of them played the Silver Course and only seven played the Gold.
Medalist honors are up for grabs at the end of 36 holes as the top 32 players attempt to advance to match play.
Kyle Chappell, Casey Halliday, Jeff Evans and Stu Gold checked in with 68s, while Brad Hendrix, Scott Clark, Andrew Cottle and UGA president Bill Probst shot 69s.
Patrick Fishburn tops a group at 70, while former State Am runner-up Alex Sutton leads a large group at 71. Top of Utah golfers Jonathon Thomas and Brennan Coburn also fired 71s.
Branca, Evans, and Booth are sons of golf professionals Ron Branca (The Country Club), Mike Booth (Glenmoor), and John Evans (Cedar Ridge).
Former champions Tommy Sharp and Dan Horner are still in the thick of it, while 13-year-old Rhett Rasmussen shot even par on the Silver.
