Nevada Open: Amateur Ryan McCullough finishes five back
MESQUITE, Nev. (Nov. 13, 2014) — There were no amateur players in the top-30 after round one of the Nevada Open, but 24-year-old Ryan McCullough fired the lowest round on day two to jump into a tie for seventh place and sit just two shots back of the lead.

Despite the Wednesday surge, McCullough couldn't put the same round together on Thursday, instead shooting a respectable two-under par 70 to wrap up low amateur honors at CasaBlanca Golf Club.

McCullough, of Las Vegas, finished at 204, five shots behind winner Canadian Seann Harlingten, as well as second-place finisher Tom Whitney, who lost in a one-hole playoff to Harlingten, of West Vancouver.

David Rose, also of West Vancouver, posted 62 on Tuesday while McCullough shot 70, but a 64 on Wednesday brought him to within two shots of Rose, and four other co-leaders — Seann Harlingten, Tom Whitney, Kevin Roy, and Michael McCabe.

While the first 36 holes were split between The Palms Golf Club and CasaBlanca Golf Club in Mesquite, the final round was played exclusively at CasaBlanca.
