Melcher Leads Texas Super Senior Amateur After Round 1
FRANKSTON – Tom Melcher leads the Texas Super Senior Amateur after the opening round with an even par 72. Melcher holds a one shot advantage over three players in the Super Senior Division. Dave Smith holds a slim lead in the Legends Division after the first round. This year’s Championship is being contested in Frankston at Pine Dunes Resort & Golf Club.
Melcher, from Mansfield, recorded three birdies in his opening round, but also claimed three bogeys on his way to an even par day. Melcher’s front nine included two birdies and one bogey to turn at 1-under par 35. His back nine was flipped from the front, with two bogeys and one birdie.
Tied for second after the first round at 1-over par 73 include Montgomery’s Tom McGraw, Harlingen’s Ray Iler and Wayne Wright, of Aledo.
In a tie for fifth place at 3-over par 75 are McKinney’s Gary Kirwan, Houston’s David Bean, Sam Boyd and Aaron Billings, both of Horseshoe Bay.
In the Legends Division Georgetown’s Smith posted an opening round 77 to hold a narrow lead over Don Grider, of Georgetown, and Houston’s Mike Rice. Both Grider and Rice opened with a 78. Sitting alone in fourth place at 81 is Carey Schulten, of Dallas.
Players will jockey for position tomorrow as the second round will begin at 8:00 AM. The Legends Division, which went first today, will be at the end of tomorrow’s wave while the Super Senior Division will go first.
