PINEHURST, N.C. — Day one of the North & South Senior Amateur saw many low scores at Pinehurst No. 1, including a six-under par 64 from Norfolk, Mass. native Don Reycroft.

Reycroft began his day on the back-nine, making five birdies to post 31 before shooting one-under 33 on the front to go bogey-free and lead by a stroke after Tuesday's opening round.

Paul Simson is in second place at 65, while Michael Vassil and Kim Mansfield are tied for third at 66.

Defending champion George Walker of Mobile, Ala. struggled on Tuesday, shooting 77 and ending the day in a tie for 57th place.

The 54-hole tournament will be played at three separate Pinehurst Resort courses, including courses 1, 5, and 8. Day one was played on No. 1, the property's original course built in 1898. Day two will move to No. 8, the 1996 Tom Fazio design, while the tournament will conclude Thursday at No. 5, designed by Donald Ross protege Ellis Maples in 1961 before being redesigned by Robert Trent Jones in 1974.
