golf • A glance at the stroke-play leaderboard after the first day of the 116th State Amateur golf tournament makes it clear: Utah’s best amateur golfers had their way with one golf course, but mostly struggled on the other. Layton’s Valley View Golf Course took a pretty good beating, while the Ogden Golf & Country Club yielded only one subpar round on Monday. The six best scores were posted at Valley View, including an 8-under-par 64 by Tooele’s Jake Holt, a 22-year-old who recently completed his eligibility at Southern Utah University. Park City’s Justin Shluker, who just completed his first season of golf at Sonoma State University in California, had the low round at Ogden, 1-under-par 69. > C2
