ALAMEDA, Calif. (April 27, 2014) -- Jonathan De Los Reyes fired a 4-under 67 at the Jack Clark Course at the Chuck Corica Golf Complex Sunday to take a four-shot lead at the 2014 Alameda Commuters.

Closing the competition's first weekend in style, the St. Mary's golfer followed his first-round 68 with a red-hot 67 and sits at 7-under through two rounds.

De Los Reyes will be the leader when the top 50 players within the massive 250-player field take aim at the final 36 holes of the prestigious Bay Area championship.

Shintaro Ban, who last month won the San Francisco City Championship, sits tied for second place alongside Adam Stone and Matt Williams. Ban carded a 3-under 68 Sunday on the Earl Fry Course to jump towards the top of the leaderboard.

First-round leader David Na couldn't duplicate his first-round 67 and shot 74. He's among three players tied for fifth place entering next weekend's action.

Play will continue Saturday in the Open Championship. The Senior Division will also begin their 36-hole event on Saturday.

ABOUT THE Alameda Commuters

What's in a name? In the case of the Alameda Commuters Championship, the logo of the almost 90 year old tournament would be a dead giveaway. It's a steam ferry, which was the only way to "commute" to San Francisco from the East Bay before the Bay Bridge was built. Started as an informal event -- the original first prize was a bag of nails -- the tournament has grown into one of the top independent events in California.

A dedicated tournament committee prides itself on running the two weekend, 72-hole competition as if it were a PGA Tour event. Two of the best public courses at the city-owned Chuck Corica Golf Complex are prepared with care. Slick greens, Sunday pins, and even that rarity in amateur golf – spectators are all part of the fun. The roped-off scoreboard is a particular area of pride for the "green jackets" who were wearing dark green blazers before they were made popular by another tournament you might be aware of in Augusta Georgia. The 250 player championship division is cut to 50 and ties for the second weekend, at which time the 36-hole senior division tees off to join them. A notable recent past champion, and scoring record holder, is PGA Tour player Matt Bettencourt.

Note: The Senior Division is 36 holes, played on second weekend. Online registration is only available for Championship Division. Seniors should email Bob bg olf@comcast.net for an entry form.
