AMATEUR GOLFPleat leads at NH Mid Am

NEW DURHAM, N.H. — Former Dartmouth College golfer James Pleat is one day away from his third significant win of the New Hampshire amateur season thanks to his lead two rounds into the NHGA Mid-Amateur Championship at Lake Winnipesaukee Golf Club.

Pleat shot an even-par 72 in Wednesday’s second round to reach 2-over 146 through 36 holes. He has a one-stroke lead on the Golf Club of New England’s Brett Wilson and a two-shot edge on Hooper’s Ryan Kohler, the runner-up at August’s Stroke Play Championship at Montcalm Golf Club.

Pleat has already won the stroke-play qualifying and match play titles at this year’s New Hampshire Amateur. A win on Thursday would all but guarantee him the NHGA’s Thomas J. Leonard Jr. Player of the Year award as the state’s top amateur golfer.

Seven players are within six shots of the lead, including Pleat’s father, Phil (76-76-152).
