Arthur Zelmati aced the stroke play portion of the 114th Massachusetts Amateur.
Now he’ll try to do something he’s never done before.
Zelmati (George Wright GC) earned medalist honors at the Mass. Am at Concord Country Club, following up his opening-round 67 with a 71 on Tuesday to finish at 2-under, three shots clear of second-place Will Frodigh of Dedham Country & Polo Club (69-72).
The 2020 Mass Mid-Amateur champion earned the top seed for match play and is seeking his first match play victory after a first-round exit back in 2020.
