Newsom Takes Sizable Lead into Final Round of State Open

Midlothian, VA (WWBT)- Roger Newsom picked up right where he left off on Saturday, sustaining his six stroke lead and continuing his solid play in round three of the State Open of Virginia.

Newsom shot a five under par 67 on Saturday and lowered his overall score to -17, six strokes ahead of his nearest competitor, Faber Jamerson.  For the second straight round, Newsom avoided a bogey, as he has tallied just one bogey in 54 holes of golf so far.  Entering the day with a score of -12, Newsom tallied three birdies on the front nine to hold a -15 score at the turn, and birdied two more, including his final hole at 18, to round out his scoring.

Jamerson played his best round of the tournament so far, but still sits six strokes back of the leader.  The three time champion is eleven under par for the three days and will look to make up some ground in the final round on Sunday afternoon.  Jamerson is four strokes ahead of third place sitter Mikey Moyers, who is at -7 after three rounds.  Chip Sullivan is in fourth with one round to go at -6.

Seven golfers are tied for fifth place heading into the final day of play, including Richmond area players Rick Schuller and Jay Woodson, along with defending champion Evan Beck.
