Wes Gosselin of Knoxville, TN has put on an absolute clinic this week at Blackthorn Club in Jonesborough, TN. The rising senior at UT-Chattanooga is on pace to set the record for both lowest score to par and largest margin of victory in the 101st Tennessee State Amateur Championship. Gosselin’s rounds of 67-64-68-199 place him at 17-under par for the championship.
19-under par, set by Peyton Sliger of Maryville, TN in 2015 at Holston Hills Country Club, is the record low for the championship. The largest margin of victory is 8 strokes set by Andrew Pratt in 2004 at Hillwood Country Club.
Gosselin will be paired with 2016 Tennessee Junior Amateur Champion and Tennessee Match Play Champion William Nottingham (-6) of Kingsport as well as Lee University’s Taylor Davis (-3) of Franklin.
Round Four begins Friday morning at Blackthorn Club in Jonesborough, TN.
