Rhode Island’s Allison Paik is just two shots off the lead after the first round of the New England Amateur at North Conway Country Club in New Hampshire.
Paik, who is the only Rhode Islander in the field, fired a three-over 74 in the first round and is two back of Thorny Lea’s Megan Buck, who posted one-over on the day.
As GolfNewsRI reported earlier this summer, Paik committed to the University of Columbia to play golf after graduating from Wheeler.
After playing even par through the first eight holes, Paik bogeyed the par-4 ninth hole to finish the opening nine at one-over.
She bounced back with a birdie on ten before making three straight bogeys from holes 14-16 to finish three-over.
