Anderson Memorial: Rain delays Round 2
UPDATE:Wet weather caused by Tropical Storm Andrea postponed Round 2 at Winged Foot. Play will resume Saturday and tee times and pairings will remain the same as originally scheduled for Friday.
MAMARONECK, NY (June 6, 2013) -- The amateur slate's most prestigious four-ball event teed off Thursday at historic Winged Foot and two teams sit atop the stroke-player leaderboard after the first of two 18-hole qualifying rounds ahead of the match play portion of the event.

The teams of Trevor Randolph and Paul Derosa and Eoghan O'Connell and Dan O'Callaghan both opened play with 4-under 66s and sit atop the leaderboard.

Randolph and Derosa play out of Congressional while O'Connell and O'Callaghan are representing The Fox Club.

Robert Funk and David Bartman lead a group of four teams sitting one shot back in a tie for third place. Winged Foot members Hans Albertsson and Brian Williams used their local knowledge to shoot 67.

Max Buckley, a recent winner at the New York City Amateur Championship and teammate Max Christina are two back in a tie for seventh after a first-round 68.

Two-time defending champions Parker Smith and Dan Crockett shot a 70 and sit in a tie for 15th. Smith, of course, won it with a different partner in 2010, meaning he's going for his fourth straight title.

In the Senior Division, Bart Goodwin and Mike Peck of Old American Golf Club lead a group of three teams atop the leaderboard. Goodwin and Peck, Winged Foot members Tim Hultquist and Chris Mara and the team of Thomas Bartolacci and Joseph Viechnicki are all in a first-place tie with opening-round 68s.

Defending champions Jim Holtgrieve (of Walker Cup and USGA fame) and Tom Case of Pine Valley are tied for 12th place after shooting 73.

The second qualifying round is tomorrow before brackets of 16 teams are created and match play begins.
