Knights’ Dupere making a name for himself in FCBL

State Amateur Golf preview: Zimmerman among top young guns in field

Like any good son, Nashua’s Bryce Zimmerman leaped on the opportunity to carry his dad Rob’s bag when the match-play portion of the 2018 New Hampshire State Amateur kicked in. That, of course, was “Plan B.” A year later, Bryce isn’t even considering the option. “Hopefully, ...
