First Round Results
Golf Course: Located in McKinney, Eldorado Country Club combines a great golf experience with unmatched beauty of the McKinney landscape. Eldorado was established in 1981 by golf course designer Gary Roger Baird. The course features tight tree-lined fairways with strategically placed slopes off the tee to test every level of play. Eldorado CC’s small greens challenge players to be accurate on their approach shots to give them the best look at the hole. Eldorado CC is playing at 6,559 yards for the Senior Division and 6,087 yards for the Super Senior Division.
Weather: Cool morning with a slight breeze coming out of the Southeast. The wind picked up around 11:00am to 17mph with gusts of 25mph. The temperature reached lows into mid 60’s. Thursday’s forecast calls for overnight thunderstorms and some showers that will last into the late morning as players tee off for the final round.
In contention: Dave Davis and Wayne Wright find themselves at the top of the leaderboard again at the North Senior Amateur after posting a first round one-over-par 73. Davis and Wright will have work to do in Thursday’s final round as 11 players sit just three shots back in a crowded leaderboard. Within those is the defending North Senior Amateur Champion, Mike Peck. Peck fired a first round, four-over-par, 76 on Wednesday.
Rick Lindsay of Rockwall has himself a two stroke cushion in the Super Senior Division heading into the final round. Lindsay posted a two-over-par 74 that included three birdies. Sitting in a three way tie for second place, past champion Gary Kirwan looks to make a final round charge to try and capture his second North Senior Amateur (Super Senior Division) title. Bill Holstead, Donald Chester, and Doug Hopton-Jones round out the top five.
What’s Next: The final round of the 2019 North Senior will begin tomorrow at 8:00 AM off #1 and #10 tees. Following play, there will be a brief awards presentation for the top finishers in both divisions. For Round 2 pairings, click here.
