Bull charges out to the lead at 115th Iowa Amateur
When the afternoon wave of the 115th Iowa Amateur arrived at Cedar Rapids Country Club and glanced at the leaderboard, some may of thought they were in Pamplona. However at CRCC, the Bull was out front and remained there throughout the day.
Playing in the morning group of tee times, Norwalk’s Dennis Bull made a run through the course in route to a sizzling 65 (-7). Bull’s round included 5 birdied, an eagle (#9) and no bogeys.
Cedar Rapids’ Jordan Even and Jewell’s Trevor Ullestad both posted fine scores, 68 (-4), to stay within striking distance of Bull. Even, an employee at CRCC, used his knowledge of the course to put six birdies of his own on the scorecard. Unfortunately he also made a pair of bogeys. Ullestad made six birdies of his own against two bogeys. A total of five players sit just four back of Bull’s lead at 69 (-3).
With the help of ideal scoring conditions, a total of 16 players broke par in the opening round. Play resumes tomorrow morning, where the field will be cut to the low 60 scores and ties after the second round.
