PARKER, Colo. — On a day just two players shot under par at Colorado Golf Club in Parker, Robin Bradbury of Heritage at Westmoor fired a 3-under 69 to grab a two-shot lead after Tuesday's first round of the 44th CGA Senior Stroke Play Championship.

Bill Fowler of the Club at Rolling Hills, who qualified for the 2015 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship at Colorado Golf Club, was the other player to break par on Tuesday, carding a 1-under 71. The former CGA president matched Bradbury's seven-birdie performance.
The only other competitor to shoot under 76 on Tuesday was defending champion and Colorado Golf Hall of Famer Kent Moore of Cherry Hills Country Club, who posted a 74. Moore just returned from competing in the U.S. Senior Amateur.
The field of 84 will be cut to the low 40 and ties after Wednesday's second round. The tournament concludes on Thursday.
