ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Boylan grad TJ Baker skipped out on the Winnebago County Amateur after playing in the Mauh-Nah-Tee-See Match Play invitational earlier that week. The time in between tournaments has shown to benefit the former Titan as he takes a four-stroke lead into Sunday’s final round of the Aldeen Cup after shooting a -4 (68) on Saturday.

Baker is on his way to play golf at SIU-Edwardsville. Until then, he will continue to play on the city circuit. The 2019 IHSA 2A individual champion had a chance to finish five under, but his birdie attempt on 18 rolled an inch to the left of the cup.

Robert Dofflemyer is the lone competition with a real shot at catching Baker on Sunday, after the Mauh-Nah-Tee-See Match Play champion shot an even par 72.
