ANKENY, Iowa —Winning never gets old. At least not in the Iowa Senior Amateur Championship.

A year after winning his first Iowa Senior Amateur, West Des Moines’ Gene Elliott finds himself in a tie for the lead after day one of the 37th Iowa Senior Amateur at Otter Creek Golf Course.

Elliott (68), is tied with Ankeny’s Curtis Hock and Burlington’s Scott Briggs. Elliott’s round was a clean one – with three birdies on #5, #12 and #18.

Hock made four birdies and a lone bogey. Briggs sprinkled in five birdies to go along with only a pair of bogeys on the card.

Todd Hingtgen, of Marion, lurks two shots back after shooting 70 (-1).

In the Super Senior Division (65 years and older) Tom Sandie, of Urbandale, shot 73 (+2) and leads by one over Brian Fell, of Ames, and Scott Carnes, of Hiawatha.

The final two rounds of the championship will be contested on Tuesday and Wednesday.
