RUTLAND — A year after claiming player of the year honors in New Hampshire, Lebanon’s Pat Pelletier is 36 holes away from claiming a significant golf pelt in Vermont.

The Lebanon High School and University of Rhode Island graduate, playing out of the Quechee Club, shot a 1-over-par 71 during the second round of the Vermont Amateur at Rutland Country Club, staying very much in the title hunt in the process.

With Rutland’s Drake Hull, the two-time defending state champ, coming back to the crowd, Pelletier sits two shots back entering Thursday’s two-round finale.

Pelletier is at 1-over 141 through two rounds, tied with the Country Club of Barre’s Bryson Richards (70-71), with Hull leading at 1-under 139 (66-73).

Pelletier will tee off with Rutland’s Peter Christenson (71-71-142) at 9:04 a.m. in the third round’s next-to-last group.

The Upper Valley will be well-represented on Thursday. Wilder’s Jay Zanleoni (76-72-148) shared 14th place with three other competitors. Lebanon native Andy Hunnewell, also playing out of Quechee, is tied for 18th at 149 (73-76).

Montague’s Bill Wilkinson (74-76) and Thetford Academy graduate Erik Lindahl (77-73), representing Lake Morey Country Club, are in a group of four tied for 23rd at 150.

Third-round play begins at 8 a.m. on Thursday. After a short break, the 40 survivors of Wednesday’s cut will turn around for one more 18-hole round to determine a champion.
