Bluffton's J.D. Hoft shot an even-par 72 on Saturday at The Golf Club at Indigo Run to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the Hilton Head Island Amateur Golf Association Amateur Championship.

Hoft, who won the tournament in 2007, is one stroke ahead of three golfers -- Judson Milam, Matt O'Quinn and nine-time Hilton Head Amateur champion Kevin King. That foursome will tee off from hole No. 1 at 9:50 a.m. Sunday.

Two-time defending champion Rob Simmons is five shots behind Hoft. Fifteen golfers are within five shots of the lead.

Kevin Arnold is on top of the senior division after carding an opening-round 71. He leads by four shots. Steve Molthop is leading the handicap division by one after a net score of 69.
