PENDLETON, Ore. — Justin Kadin (Corvallis, Ore.) leads the Men’s Division and Rosie Cook (Bend, Ore.) is in front in the Women’s Division after the first day of the 27th Oregon Mid- Amateur Championship, held August 15-16 at Wildhorse Resort in Pendleton, Oregon.

Kadin fired a blistering 7-under par 66 to lead by three shots in the Men’s Division, as the course played as a par 73 for the division on Saturday. A whopping 21 players shot under par in Saturday’s first round, adding up to what should be an exciting final day on Sunday.

Kadin, who won the last OGA event played at Wildhorse Resort (2010 Oregon Public Links), compiled an eagle, six birdies and just one bogey in his round. In second place at 4-under par is hometown competitor Nathan Dick (Pendleton, Ore.) and Denny Taylor (Gladstone, Ore).

Four players are four shots back of Kadin and in a tied for fourth place: Philip Bagdade (Portland, Ore.), Jim Dunlap (Beaverton­, Ore.), defending champion Joel Johnson (Portland, Ore.) and Terry Paresi (Oregon City, Ore.).

In the Women’s Division, Cook played extremely consistent on Saturday, totaling five birdies and just two bogies in her round of 69, as the course played to a par 72 for the Women’s Division in the first round. Kate Harper (Portland, Ore.) is at 1-under par and in second place, while defending five-time champion Brie Stone (Veneta, Ore.) is four back of Cook and in third place after shooting a 1-over par 73.

Lani Elston (Milwaukie, Ore.), who won this year’s PNGA Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship earlier this summer, is in fourth place after a first round 74 (+2). Vanvilay Cox (Eugene, Ore.) is six back of Cook, firing a 75 (+3) on Saturday.

Tee times will begin at 8:00 AM on Sunday.
