Bobby Leopold Co-Leads New England Amateur After Round 1
What a couple of days it has been for Bobby Leopold.
Just a few short days after winning his third Rhode Island Amateur title, Leopold now co-leads the New England Amateur after the first round at Great River Golf Club in Connecticut.
Leopold posted a bogey-free six-under 66 in round one to find himself in a three-way tie for first place with Worcester’s Owen Quinn and Connecticut’s Cody Paladino.
Only one other Rhode Islander is inside the top five and that is Austin Cilley.
Cilley actually held the lead for a portion of the day, but ended up in a tie for fourth at three-under par.
Leopold tees off at 8:03 a.m. on Wednesday.
Cilley tees off at 1:14 p.m.
Leopold’s First Round
Leopold birdied the second and eighth holes to make the turn at two-under par.
It was the back nine where Leopold lit it up.
After saving par on the first two holes, Leopold birdied 12 and 13 and then closed with birdies on 15 and 17 to finish the day six-under par.
