PACIFIC GROVE, Calif. (Dec. 1, 2007)—It’s no surprise that Casey Boyns, founder of the amateurgolf.com Christmas Classic (it was first called Casey’s Christmas Classic), was atop the leaderboard after firing an opening-day 3-under-par 67 at Pacific Grove Golf Course.

Boyns, who just won his record fourth Northern California Player of the Year Award, is joined at 3-under by Cal freshman Stephen Hale. The talk of the day was some of the diabolical pin placements (particularly on No. 3, which bordered on unfair) which was the only way the 5700-yard course could defend par against such a strong field.

In the senior flight, Greg O’Malley bemoaned several missed birdie chances, but still opened up a two stroke lead over the field with a 1-under-71. Frank Abbott sits in second place.

Vincent Steele fired a net 66 to take firm control of the net flight.

***** amateurgolf.com reporter notes *****

-Kris Baxter wasted no time getting into a groove, acing his first hole of the day, the 103-yard 10th at Pacific Grove. “I haven’t played here in years,” he remarked after the round which saw him finish at 1-under 69.

-Conversely, Taylor Travis had a rough opening hole, carding a bogey after his tee shot traveled only 60 yards. He was able to recover, however, to post a 1-over-71.

-Brian Thompson eagled the 11th after driving the green on 303-yarder and holing a 10-foot putt

ABOUT THE AGC Christmas Classic

The Christmas Classic was founded by 2-time California State Amateur Champion Casey Boyns over 20 years ago and it always attracts a great field. This is our most popular event, and year in and year out it sells out. Field limited to 104 players; Championship, Senior, Women, and Net divisions.

Your entry fee includes two rounds of golf (cart at players expense), $4500 in Callaway Golf certificate prizes, $20 lunch certificate, and a great weekend at one of the Monterey Peninsula's wonderful classic courses, "Old" Del Monte.

Players age 25 and over compete in the Championship Division, (same tees, same prize opportunities) and if there are at least 10 Mid- Ams, a separate prize will be awarded.
