ALAMEDA, Calif. (April 17, 2010) -- With firm fast conditions, along with a slight westward wind, scores in the 83rd ALAMEDA COMMUTERS GOLF TOURNAMENT were a bit higher than usual. With only 18 scores under par after first round play, players expecting to make the low 50 and ties cut off need to keep on their toes as second round action starts tomorrow.
From the starting field of 224 players who teed off this morning, currently 67 players are at 73, or better.
After 18 holes, KEVIN WENTWORTH of Arnold, CA leads the pack, firing a 5 under par 66 on the EARL FRY North Course.
With only low 50 and ties making the cut, Jack Cummings, PGA professional estimates that 146 will be the target number: with those low 50 leading into the next weekend’s final 36 holes of championship golf in one of Northern California’s premiere amateur golf events.
