WESTMINSTER, Colo. (Sept. 10, 2014) — Three players, including 2012 champion David Delich, shot even-par 71s on Wednesday and share the lead after the opening round of the 43rd CGA Senior Stroke Play Championship at The Ranch Country Club in Westminster.
Joining Delich, who plays out of the Broadmoor Golf Club, in the top spot were Colorado Golf Hall of Famer Kent Moore of Cherry Hills Country Club and Dave Brown of the Rocky Mountain Golf Course Superintendents Association Golf League.
Delich, who will be competing in the U.S. Senior Amateur this weekend in Newport Beach, Calif., birdied two of his final three holes in round 1.
Moore, runner-up in this event last year, likewise made three birdies on Wednesday, overcoming a second-hole double bogey in the process.
Brown, winner of the 2011 Golf Course Superintendents Association of America National Championship, also carded three birdies, but played his final seven holes in 2 over par.
Three players share fourth place, a stroke behind the leaders: Ted Warner of Greeley Country Club, Kirk Blaszyk of Glenwood Springs Golf Club and Paul Edwards of Meridian Golf Club.
The 54-hole championship will continue through Friday, with a cut to the low 40 players and ties taking place after two rounds.
