Through two rounds of the 2020 Colorado Open, the battle for low-amateur is shaping up to be a contest of the who's who of Colorado high school boys golf alums.
And on his home course of the Green Valley Ranch Golf Club, Eaglecrest grad and former Class 5A boys state champion Davis Bryant is right in the mix. Bryant shot a 3-under-par 69 on Friday to make the cut and put himself in the mix for low-am honors on the course he grew up playing on. Bryant currently plays at Colorado State University.
The cut at the event came in at 4-under par at two alums in Cal McCoy (Regis Jesuit) and Brennan Dolan (Fairview) came in right at the number. They trail Palmer grad and current Doherty girls golf coach Colin Prater by four strokes.
Prater shot 71 in a weather delayed second round to enter the weekend as the low-amateur on the board at 8-under. Lakewood has a pair of contenders in Griffin Barela (7-under) and Jack Castiglia (5-under). Bryant's college teammate AJ Ott shot a 68 on Friday to also get under the cutline. The teammates are paired together for Saturday's round.
The overall lead in the tournament entering Saturday is Jared du Toit, a pro out of Kimberely, British Columbia.
