Former Razorback Cappelen leads on Web.com Tour
Saturday, June 21, 2014
In his first event as a professional, Sebastian Cappelen leads the Web.com Tour’s Air Capital Classic after a bogey-free, 5-under 65 in the third round.
Cappelen, who recently graduated from Arkansas, will take a two-shot lead over Andres Gonzales into Sunday’s final round in Wichita, Kan. Cappelen is 14 under at Crestview Country Club.
The 24-year-old from Odense, Denmark, was recently named to the Golfweek All-American second team. Cappelen Monday-qualified for the event for his first pro start. He has 16 birdies and just two bogeys through 54 holes.
Other notables in the top 10: Blayne Barber is tied for third at 11 under after rounds of 65-67-67. Ollie Schniederjans, a rising senior at Georgia Tech, who took the first-round lead with a 64, is tied for seventh along with 36-hole leader Aaron Watkins. Watkins struggled to a 1-over 71 in the third round.
