MAMARONECK, N.Y. (June 5, 2014) -- Jeff Ingram and Michael Sullivan shot a 3-under 67 and lead by two shots early in Round 1 at the 2014 Anderson Memorial Four-Ball at Winged Foot.

Playing the famed club's East Course, Ingram and Sullivan, playing out of Champions Golf Club, are two shots up on a group of four teams following the morning round.

The teams of Dan O'Callaghan and Eoghan O'Connell (Silo Ridge Field Club), Matthew and Peter Meyer (Winged Foot), Shane Heise and Scott Loving (Conroe Country Club) and Tom Strange and Wes Pierce (Eagle Point Golf Club) all shot 69 and are tied for second.

Six other teams are just another shot back, including former U.S. Mid-Amateur champion Kevin Marsh and Giles Kibbe (The Floridian).

All told, there are 10 teams inside of three shots of the lead and another six within four shots.

The field endures a 36-hole stroke-play qualifier before the top 16 teams begin match play.

The Anderson is perhaps the most coveted best-ball invitational in all of amateur golf. Annually, 62 teams participate in what may be the oldest four ball event in the nation, and another 28 teams compete in the senior flight.

Host Winged Foot was designed by A.W. Tilinghast and has been the site of 11 major championships, including the U.S. Open, U.S. Women's Open, U.S. Amateur and PGA Championship. In 2020, the U.S. Open will return.
