Landegren, Dutch share lead

Mia Landegren and Ellie Dutch both shot even-par 72s to share the lead after the opening round of the Connecticut Women's Amateur tournament being held at Timberlin Golf Club.
Landegren isn't even 16, yet she is the No. 1 player on her high school team - the Shepaug Valley boys team - as a sophomore. She qualified for the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship this year and also is a member of the Swedish Junior National team.
Dutch played for the boys team at Hale-Ray High School. A 2010 graduate of UConn, Dutch won the Massachusetts Women's Open in late June.
Defending champion Erica Barnes shot a 75 on her home course and is 3 shots behind the leaders heading into Wednesday's final round.
