Fort Worth – Zach Atkinson grabs the lead after the first round of the North Mid-Amateur at Diamond Oaks Country Club. Atkinson shot a five-under, 65 total for a three-shot lead.
Colleyville’s Atkinson, who started on the tenth hole, made birdie on holes 11 through 13 and added a fourth on the par-4 18th to go out in 4-under. He added a birdie on the par-4 third and the par-5 fifth before surrendering a shot on the par-4 eighth, which was his only bogey of the day.
Atkinson is a two-time champion of the North Mid-Amateur champion. Atkinson won in 2013 and 2015 both contested at Trophy Club Country Club.

Two more birdies and a bogey on the front side saw Osborne match his outward score for an overall 2-under-par total.
