Broc Everett holds a three-stroke lead
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (July 25, 2017) - It was college day at the Cedar Rapids Country Club as four of the top five on the leaderboard will be buying books this fall in preparation for classes.
West Des Moines’ Broc Everett (pictured above) made the biggest statement, playing in the morning wave, of the second round of the 115th Iowa Amateur at CRCC.
Everett, who will be a senior on the golf team at Augusta University, matched Dennis Bull’s opening round 65 (-7) and leads the way at -10. His round included a total of seven birdies, an eagle and a pair of bogeys (bookends of a four birdie in a row stretch).
“I didn’t really have any expectations coming into the rounds,” Everett said. “I just tried to take it one shot at a time and early in the round I began to hit it really well. I was able to cruise my way in.”
By cruise he meant, continuing to add to his birdie count on the day.
“I had some kick-ins (on the back nine),” Everett said. “I made a couple nice putts as well. I know the course is going to play tougher tomorrow, which is great. I think we will see the Cedar Rapids Country Club we all expected tomorrow. On a Donald Ross course you have to stay below the hole and in the right spots. I hope for a carefree day tomorrow.”
Jewell’s Trevor Ullestad, who plays college golf at Missouri and will also be a senior this fall, posted another fine round of 69 (-3) to go along with his 68 yesterday and sits at -7.
Sitting at -5 and five strokes off the lead after two days is Alex Moorman (Centerville), who now plays at Iowa after transferring from Kansas this past spring.
Lurking at -4 is Frank Lindwall (Cedar Rapids), who will play for Iowa State beginning this fall. The lone ‘Mid-Am’ in the top five is opening round leader Dennis Bull (Norwalk), who is at -4 as well for the tournament.
The two-day cut was 153 (+9), which included the low 60 scores and ties.
ROUND ONE RECAP
When the afternoon wave of the 115th Iowa Amateur arrived at Cedar Rapids Country Club and glanced at the leaderboard, some may of thought they were in Pamplona. However at Cedar Rapids Country Club, the Bull was out front and remained there throughout the day.
Playing in the morning group of tee times, Norwalk’s Dennis Bull made a run through the course in route to a sizzling 65 (-7). Bull’s round included 5 birdied, an eagle (#9) and no bogeys.
Cedar Rapids’ Jordan Even and Jewell’s Trevor Ullestad both posted fine scores, 68 (-4), to stay within striking distance of Bull. Even, an employee at CRCC, used his knowledge of the course to put six birdies of his own on the scorecard. Unfortunately he also made a pair of bogeys. Ullestad made six birdies of his own against two bogeys. A total of five players sit just four back of Bull’s lead at 69 (-3).
With the help of ideal scoring conditions, a total of 16 players broke par in the opening round. Play resumes tomorrow morning, where the field will be cut to the low 60 scores and ties after the second round.
