ST. AUGUSTINE, Florida (Oct. 10, 2014) — Edward Richardson posted a three-under par 67 in the opening-round of the St. Augustine Amateur, being held at St. Johns Golf Club. Richardson is one of four players under-par and leads the talented field by two shots.

In a three-way tie for second place are William Gordon, Brandon Mancheno, and Joseph Winslow.

Four more players are tied for fifth at even- par after rounds of 70 to open the event.
