Watroba, Parziale lead the way at the Pro-Am Championship
Tim Watroba, PGA (Thorny Lea) and reigning U.S Mid-Amateur Champion Matt Parziale shot an opening round 63 (-9) on the Nicklaus Course at the Pro-Am Championship at Pinehills CC in Plymouth, MA. After the first 18 holes, all teams will play on the opposite tee of the opposite course.
Watroba and Parziale had a clean score card with nine birdies on the day, six on the front and three on the back. At the halfway point they lead the rest of the field by two strokes. Dave Lane, PGA and Jimmy Hervol from Hopkinton CC, Jay Wick, PGA and Doug Clapp from Old Sandwich CC, and Dan Venezio, PGA and Patrick Kowker from Portland CC are all tied in second place with a score of 65 (-7)
There are still great scores to be had out on the course in the afternoon tee times, so a lead change could be in the very near future!
