SALT LAKE CITY — Kirk Siddens fired a course-record 12-under-par 60 at Rose Park Golf Course Saturday to win the 36-hole Salt Lake City Senior Amateur with a two-day total of 128.

The 51-year-old Siddens defeated Jeff Powars by two shots and Brett Sampson by seven shots. Powars and Sampson had shared the first-round lead with 66s at Glendale Golf Course the day before.

Siddens’ record round was helped by an ace at the 183-yard No. 13 hole. The previous course record was held by PGA Tour regular Daniel Summerhays, who shot a 61 at the Rose Park Open in 2006 as a 22-year-old amateur.

Earlier this year, Siddens won the UGA Senior Match Play Tournament at Talons Cove Golf Course.

Craig Hammer and Guy Child tied for fourth at 137, while former State Amateur champion Todd Barker was next at 138. Dana Nelson came in at 140 and three players, Russell Hook, Patrick Murphy and Craig Gardner tied for eighth at 142.
