HELENA – The top mid-amateur golfers in Montana are chasing Mark Mance this weekend at the Green Meadow Country Club. Mance, the defending Montana State Mid-Amateur champion, puts his title on the line against some of the state’s best beginning on Thursday morning.

Mance won last year’s crown at the Polson Bay Golf Course, but will be challenged from past champions like Spencer Williams (2012, 2015), Parker Heller (2014) and Rob Logsdon (2005) all of Helena. Heller is paired with Carroll College head golf coach Bennett MacIntyre in Thursday’s opening round.

More than 100 golfers are registered to tee off at Green Meadow in the three round event. Pairings and tee times for the first two rounds can be found by clicking here.
