Hutsell tied for lead at MAPGA Pro tourney

David Hutsell, PGA director of instruction at The Elkridge Club, and Chip Sullivan of Troutville, Va., are tied for the lead at 6-under-par 137 in the Middle Atlantic PGA Professional Championship at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Va. Wayne DeFrancesco of Columbia is at 4-under. The field of 162 slims down to 70 for today's final round on the River course. The top 11 players and three exempt players — including Hutsell and DeFrancesco — will advance to play in the PGA Professional National Championship in June at Sunriver (Ore.) Resort. Hutsell, who shot an 8-under 64 on Kingsmill's Woods course on Day 1, slipped a little with a 2-over 73 on the River course Tuesday. This was Hutsell's first competitive round on the River course at Kingsmill.

More golf: Ray Sheedy of Clustered Spires Golf Course in Frederick finished with an eagle-3 at the 543-yard 18th hole to force a playoff, then birdied the first extra hole from 15 feet to get by Brett Williams of Baltimore Country Club and capture the 26th annual Mid-Amateur championship of the Maryland State Golf Association at Blue Mash Golf Course in Laytonsville. Williams took the lead with 70-66—136, but 15 minutes later Sheedy's eagle gave him 69-67—136. ... Defending champion Andrea Kraus of Pikesville and Hayfields CC slipped to a 1-over 73, but her two-day score of 72-73—145 was just enough to hold off Lisa Schlesinger of Norbeck CC, who posted 77-69—146, and win the Maryland State Women's Seniors title at Timbers of Troy GC.
