FLEETWOOD, Pa. - The BCGA Amateur Championship began at Golden Oaks on Friday morning. Chris Storck is the clubhouse leader after shooting a 70 in the opening round.
Rod James is in 2nd following an even-par round. Casey Blankenbiller was one-over and is in sole possession of 3rd place.
There are four golfers tied for 4th (74) and another three tied for 5th (75).
Many of the golfers remarked about the beautiful condition of the course Friday. The greens ran faster than expected, which took some of the members in the 49-player field by surprise.
The tournament continues Saturday and will conclude on Sunday.
