Hooksett's Berberian in the hunt at New England PGA Section

August 23. 2017 2:36AM

Rich Berberian enters Wednesday’s final round of the 2017 New England PGA Section Championship with a chance of winning his third title in four years.

The Hooksett resident carded a two-over 74 Tuesday, leaving him one shot behind the leaders entering today’s action at the Turner Hill/Renaissance Golf Course in Ipswich/Haverhill, Mass.

Berberian (66-74-140) will tee off today at 11:10 a.m., playing with co-leaders Liam Friedman (70-69-139) of Concord, Mass. and Robert Bruso (67-72-139) of Essex CC of Manchester, Mass.

On Tuesday, Berberian, playing out of Vesper CC in Tyngsborough, Mass., had three birdies and three bogeys, but he faltered on hole eight with a double bogey that eventually led to his two-over tally. He was the first-day leader by a stroke after shooting six-under with eight birdies and two bogeys.

Berberian won this tournament in 2014 and 2015.

Claremont native Kirk Hanefeld (71-75-146) of Salem (Mass.) CC is seven shots behind the leaders in an 11th-place tie. Hanefeld is a three-time New England PGA champion and a two-time Senior PGA Pro National champion.

Tied for 24th overall is Southern New Hampshire University head coach Matt Arvanitis at 74-76-150.

Rico Riciputi (73-78-151) of Wentworth-By-The-Sea and Jason Sedan (74-79-153) of Lake Winnipesaukee Golf Club also made the cut at 155.
