July 13, 2009


PHOENIX, Md. -- The quintet from Washington County was right around the field scoring average of 76.1 in the opening round of the 88th Maryland Open on Monday at Hillendale Country Club.

Beaver Creek club pro Dirk Schultz and amateur Greg Henry had the top local positions, finishing in a tie for 29th place after shooting 3-over-par 74s.

Schultz was at 1-under 35 on the front nine but suffered four bogeys and a double bogey on the back nine. Henry was moving along at 1 over before he suffered bogeys on 16 and 17.

Fountain Head assistant pro Brian Boggs was next with a 4-over-par 75 for a share of 46th. Starting on 10, Boggs was even par after a birdie on 18 before going four over on the front nine.


Beaver Creek amateur Ken Lampard shot a 76 and Fountain Head head pro Jim Scouller shot a 77.

The leader was John O'Leary of Pleasant Valley Country Club at 2 under. He had a one-shot lead over five others.

Chip Sullivan, who won the Open last year at Fountain Head, was off to a rough start at 3-over-par 74.

After today's second round is completed, the field will be cut to the top 40 and ties.


Hunter Martin, 12, scored an ace Monday at Yingling's Golf Center. He used a pitching wedge on the 85-yard 12th hole. The shot was witnessed by father Brian Martin.
