CINCINNATI (AP) — Wright State golf coach Pete Samborsky shot 2-under 69 to share the lead with Christopher Sloan and Clark Engle after the first round of the 108th Ohio Amateur on Tuesday at Coldstream Country Club.
Samborsky, originally from Cincinnati, birdied four of his last seven holes, while both Sloan, a native of Centerville, and Engle, an Ohio State golfer from Springfield, each had five birdies offsetting three bogeys.
Duke's Michael Ricaurte, Kent State's Ryan Troyer and Tim Crouch, a former Florida Southern player, were the only other players under par at 70.
Defending champion Andrew Dorn shot a 72 as did 1987 winner Peter Hammar. Two-time champ Robert Gerwin and Alan Fadel, who won the Am the last time it was at Coldstream in 1995, each had a 73.
