Marlborough Country Club's Frank Vana Jr. has bowed out of the Massachusetts State Amateur Golf Championship in the round of 16, the Globe reports today. Vana, 43, was vying to win his third straight championship, but was bumped off by 23-year-old Burgess Houston.
The competition continues today at Worcester Country Club.
Vana is perhaps the most well-known amateur golfer in Boston's western suburbs. Paul Harber profiled Vana earlier this week in Globe West.
