Texas N. Mid-Am: Trio shares early lead
DALLAS, Texas (March 28, 2014) -- The first round of the 2014 North Mid- Amateur Championship presented by UST Mamiya got underway Friday at the Prestonwood Country Club, Hills course in Plano. The 6,496 yard course isn’t overly long, but puts a premium on well- placed tee shots. The 84 player field was met with mild conditions ideal for scoring.

Lewis Stephenson of Mansfield set the pace early with a round of 4-under par, 68. Finishing shortly after Stephenson was Austin Haynes of Richardson who matched the clubhouse leader with a 68. Haynes recorded eight birdies in his first round. Jeff Murray of Fort Worth also went on to shoot 68 and will take a share of the lead heading into the second round on Saturday.

One shot behind the leaders at 3-under par are Michael Pruitt of Lubbock, and Dan Cook of Arlington. In all, 11 players finished under par for the first round. With 17 players within 4 shots of the lead heading into the weekend, it is sure to be an exciting final 36- holes of golf.

Round two will get underway on Saturday morning at 8:00 AM with players teeing off both the first and tenth tees. The championship will conclude on Sunday with the final 18-hole round.
