WESTMINSTER, Colo. (May 3, 2014) -- Sixty-six was the magic score Friday in the opening rounds of the CGA Four-Ball and Senior Four-Ball Championships.
Four teams shot 6-under-par 66s at Todd Creek Golf Club in Thornton to share the lead after the first round of the CGA's season-opening Four-Ball Championship. And three twosomes likewise fired 66s -- in this case, 5 under par -- to gain the top spots at the Senior Four-Ball at Legacy Ridge Golf Course in Westminster.
Two of the teams tied for the lead at Todd Creek are from Meadow Hills Golf Course: Andy Dannewitz and Brian Richmeier, and Nick Nosewicz and Heath Andersen. They're joined at 66 by Greg Braford of CommonGround Golf Course and partner Jason Dunkle of the Club at Pradera, and James Kurtenbach of South Suburban Golf Course and Tim Fitzgerald of Meridian Golf Club.
In all, 13 twosomes broke 70 in this scratch best-ball competition, which will continue through Sunday.
Meanwhile, in the CGA Senior Four-Ball at Legacy Ridge, Bill Fowler of the Club at Rolling Hills and Jim Reynolds of Bear Creek Golf Club shot a bogey-free 5-under 66 to share the lead with David Merritt and Tom Ritchie, both of Meridian Golf Club, and Owen Ellis of Flatirons Golf Course and Robin Bradbury of Legacy Ridge.
In the super-senior division for players 60 and older, Scott Radcliffe and Sean Forey of Rolling Hills shot a 68 and grabbed a one-stroke lead. Radcliffe and Forey won the Senior Four-Ball in 2003.
